PUTRAJAYA: Negotiations on the state line-up for the MCA Youth in Penang, Federal Territory and Negri Sembilan will be headed by their respective state liaison committee chairmen, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik said.
He said this was decided at the central committee meeting on Wednesday and the state chairmen concerned would conclude the negotiations as soon as possible under the MCA peace plan.
Except for the three states, the rest already had their lists endorsed. The latest was the Selangor line-up, which was endorsed by the central committee on Wednesday.
The outcome of the negotiations has to be referred to the presidential council or central committee for endorsement, Dr Ling, also Transport Minister, said after receiving a courtesy call from NYK president T. Kusakari at his office here yesterday.
