KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth should not be bogged down by its history but should set a new direction and move forward, said its outgoing chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai.

He said the movement should not be arrogant because of its outstanding history.

“We cannot have the perception that the Chinese community owe us many things just because we had achieved a lot of things in the past,” he said at the launch of MCA Youth History Book 1955-2008 here yesterday.

The book recorded the history of the movement and achievements of its leaders over the past 53 years.

On another matter, new MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the Youth central committee has unanimously decided to endorse Liow for the vice-president’s post.

“Our movement is endorsing six former MCA Youth leaders who are vying for the central committee posts.

“They are Wee Jeck Seng, Wong Koon Mun, Gan Ping Sieu, Ho You Meng, Tan Chin Meng and Tan Teik Cheng.

“We also give our support to three serving Youth leaders - Chai Kim Sen, Yit Lee Kok and Wong Nai Chee - who are also the central committee member candidates,” he said.
