PETALING JAYA: The timing of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's statement declaring war on Barisan Nasional is very unreasonable, says MCA Secretary-General Datuk Chong Sin Woon

He said that the statement by the Perikatan Nasional chairman comes as the government pushes for economic recovery following the reopening of our country's borders, adding that it is "regrettable and even puzzling".

The following is his statement in full:

It is regrettable and even puzzling that Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has suddenly declared war on Barisan Nasional. The timing could not be more unreasonable as the government pushes for economic recovery following the reopening of our country's borders.

In any case, MCA and Barisan will not be intimidated by the challenge hurled by Perikatan. Our preparations have long been underway to face any party or political camp.

As early as the Melaka and Johor state elections, the relationship between Barisan and Perikatan was that of confrontation and competition.

Holding no fears confronting challenges from both Perikatan and Pakatan Harapan in both the state elections, Barisan succeeded in winning the voters' mandate.

Barisan and MCA have long foreseen that we will face two-cornered attacks from Perikatan and Pakatan in the upcoming general election.

Our grassroots party members, organisational strength and campaign machineries are ready to face attacks from any opponent.
