KOTA KINABALU: Sabah MCA has decided to have two deputy chairmen instead of one to shoulder the increasing workload, said state party chairman Datuk Edward Khoo.

He added that this was to ensure targets were met with the half-term in office ending next year.

“We have more people to work, we have a lot of catching up to do in facing our tasks ahead, like putting more attention on 1Malaysia and the New Economic Model,” said Khoo, who is also an Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister.

Senator Paul Kong retained his deputy’s post, with Putatan MCA division chief Datuk Tang Lung Sing named as the other deputy chairman in the new state liaison committee line-up.

On the absence of Kong at the first meeting yesterday, Khoo said Kong was attending the Senate sitting in Parliament, while several other members were overseas.

He added that the new line-up was formed after consultations with his colleagues.

Khoo said everyone was prepared to work together in winning back the trust of the Chinese community.

“It is a good team that will work together for the future development of Sabah MCA,” he said.

Khoo retained three of the four incumbent vice-chairmen – Beluran MCA chief Chew Kok Woh, Tawau division chief Goh Chit Chuan and Kimanis division chief Lim Kong Yuen. The fourth and new face is Kudat division chief Lee Sip Kin.

The state Wanita chief Datuk Agnes Shim and Youth chief Wilfred Yong are in the committee automatically, holding the position of vice-chairman.

Khoo retained Goh Wak Kheng as state secretary, Michael Chang (assistant secretary), Chin Kim Hiung (treasurer), Chua Sheng Kian (assistant treasurer) and Lim Cheng Ling (organising secretary) as well as David Cheng Hwa Wen (assistant organising secretary).
