KUALA LUMPUR: Under the Jalinan Rakyat (JR) Plus Wanita MCA 2017, the women power of the party will be reaching out to the community by going door-to-door to hear the people out.

Wanita MCA chief Datuk Heng Seai Kie urged the public to use the JR Plus as an opportunity to air their opinions and grievances – no matter what their political stance is.

“Please do not verbally abuse our volunteers or view our visits negatively,” she said at a press conference after the Wanita MCA 42nd annual general meeting opening yesterday.

Heng added that the Wanita members have contacted 250,000 people since May this year.

At the opening, the MCA women members declared they are ready to “zhan, zhan, zhan (fight)!” for MCA in the 14th general election.

The 1,219 delegates responded enthusiastically to Heng when she led them in a chant of “Wanita boleh!” and “MCA is stronger together!”

Speaking at the opening ceremony, attended by party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan, Heng urged each Wanita member to garner at least five votes each.

The wing has 456,970 members as of October this year, which accounts for 41.8% of MCA’s total members.

The Wanita chief also called upon all Malaysians, especially the Chinese community, to cast their votes for those who pledge to serve the multiracial country, instead of a coalition of racists and religious extremists.

In his address to the Wanita central delegates, Ong urged them to lead Malaysian Chinese women to participate actively in entrepreneurship programmes and take full advantage of opportunities brought by the rise of Industrial Revolution 4.0.

“It is critical to note that the rise of Industrial Revolution 4.0 and e-commerce have further empowered women and created more opportunities for them.

“Over the years, the number of women who are decision makers and founders has been increasing.

“In fact, many utilised big data in setting up their own companies and have become pioneers in their respective fields,” he said.
