PENANG MCA is appealing for a chance to serve the people in the Bagan parliamentary constituency, having lost there in the last eight general elections.
Its chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng hopes voters will dare to change by voting for an MCA candidate in the next general election.
“Support us and give us a chance to set up a strong team to serve the people in Bagan,” he said after giving face masks and hand sanitiser to hawkers and traders at the Mak Mandin market.
“Bagan MCA division chairman Dr Tan Chuan Hong has been attending to the people’s problems and working diligently on the ground.
“I am sure MCA candidates will perform well if given a chance.
“I believe we can bring development to the area if we are given a chance to voice out in Parliament.”
Penang DAP has been helming the seat since 1986, with party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng being the incumbent since 2008.
Teik Cheng said during the walkabout, the party received good feedback from the public. Many people said they could feel the sincerity of MCA in serving the masses over the years.
“We still help in whatever way we can using our limited resources.”
Teik Cheng said the walkabout was held to mark Chinese New Year, adding that the face masks and hand sanitiser given would better protect the traders.
“Bagan MCA division has a good service team comprising young and good calibre members.
“They have been serving the people diligently on the ground.”
