IPOH: Taking an action-oriented approach, providing better services to the people and recruiting more young members – these are the objectives of the new Perak MCA line-up. 

In announcing the new team, Perak MCA chief Datuk Ong Ka Chuan said: “It is an action-oriented committee aiming to recapture our lost seats, particularly in the Kinta Valley, to provide better services and to recruit more members.” 

Ong, who is also national MCA secretary-general, said the new line-up included young and old leaders. 

He said he had high hopes in the youth and wanted to increase the number of members who are below 40 years old.

“Our membership ratio is now 70:30; 70% are above 40 while the rest are below. Hence, we feel that it should be 60:40,” he told a press conference yesterday. 

Ong also announced that his new deputy was Datuk Kong Cho Ha, replacing Datuk Loke Yuen Yow who has been the state deputy chief for the past 20 years. 

“Kong has to adopt the state constituencies of Sitiawan and Pantai Remis and oversee the situation there,” he said. 

Datuk Ho Cheng Wang, the former organising secretary, is now secretary and his assistant is Dr Liew Mun Hon, who holds a doctorate in engineering. 

Dr Mah Hang Soon, a cardiologist, has replaced Ho as organising secretary and will help to recruit young members. 

The line-up also sees four new vice-chairmen – Datuk Chew Wai Khoon, Datuk Lee Chee Leong, Datuk Chang Kon You and Lee Hock Tow. 

Ling Hee Leong, son of former MCA president Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik, has been appointed treasurer, replacing Tan Sri Hew See Tong. 

Ong also announced that former MCA secretary-general Tan Sri Dr Ting Chew Peh has been made an adviser together with Loke, Hew, Datuk Yeoh Kian Teik and Datuk Chan Kit Chee. 

Two new bureaus – Kampar Utar and Ktar Development Committee and Crisis Relief Squad – have been set up, he said. 

Hew would help in the building of Utar and development of Ktar while lawyer Lin Sok Chin has been appointed Crisis Relief Squad chief, he added.
