IPOH: Political developments in the country have started to turn conducive for MCA to stage a comeback
in the next general election, said party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
After two huge electoral setbacks in 2008 and 2013, he urged party members to look forward, stay united and focused on serving the people well.
This, he added, was important in helping to win back the people’s confidence and support.
Liow said MCA’s transformation programme to unite and strengthen the party was on track.
The programme was put in place by him shortly after he took over the party helm in December last year.
Apart from that, Liow said the people had also begun to see the true colours of Pakatan Rakyat.
Pakatan, he added, had taken the people’s support for granted since the last two general elections.
“The pact is only out to grab power,” he said, singling out the ongoing open fight over who should be the Selangor mentri besar.
Citing Perak as an example, Liow said the state MCA would be able to win a few more state seats apart from the one state seat – Chenderiang – it won in the general election last year.
“Let us all stay united and be focused to stage a comeback in the next general election,” he said when opening the Perak MCA state convention here yesterday.
MCA, the second largest Barisan Nasional component party, won
only 18 seats nationwide (seven parliamentary and 11 state seats) against 46 in the 2008 general election and 107 in the 2004 general election.
Liow said the Barisan government had been consistent in bringing development to the country.
He said the people would be able to see this and also the importance of development for the future of the people and country.
