PENANG MCA will go all out to assist Barisan Nasional candidates in the Batu Kawan parliamentary constituency.

State MCA chief Datuk Tan Teik Cheng said the party will not be contesting in any of the seats.

“We will, however, assist the Gerakan and MIC candidates in the Barisan spirit,” he said.

He was speaking at a dinner organised by the Batu Kawan MCA division in conjunction with Chinese New Year at a restaurant in Simpang Ampat, Nibong Tebal, on Wednesday.

“I’m also happy with the turnout which included the leaders and supporters of Barisan’s component parties,” he said.
