TELUK INTAN: A Member of Parliament who can provide better service and bring development in the next three years will be good for Teluk Intan, said Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

The Lumut MCA chairman and former transport minister said ­voters should be pragmatic and elect someone who could bring tangible improvement to their lives, from a better living environment to more business and job opportunities.

He said Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Mah Siew Keong would be able to serve them immediately after polling on Saturday if he were elected.

“(If he wins), as an MP in the ­ruling coalition, Datuk Mah will have the network or access to facilitate things that need to be done for the people.

“Being a local boy and a former MP for two terms (1999-2008), he knows the people’s needs and also problems in the area,” Kong said after meeting Mah and Foo Chow community leaders here yesterday.

Kong said Teluk Intan folk should also take note that another DAP MP would not change the government.

“In the general election last year, some people just gave their support to DAP and its Pakatan Rakyat allies, PAS and PKR, thinking they could change the government.

“Teluk Intan folk should think for themselves this time around,” Kong said.
