KUALA LUMPUR: MCA vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said she will continue her work in Raub and prepare for the coming general election, regardless of who her opponent is.
"No matter who is contesting in Raub, I will be fighting the war 'positively'," she told reporters after CNY Care project at Wisma MCA here Saturday.
"The most important thing is to be prepared. We have to be clear on our ideology, our direction. It is also important to ensure we can fulfil the pledges we made for the locals, bringing them hope," she said.
Chew, who is likely to contest in Raub, was responding to an earlier report that DAP deputy secretary-general Teresa Kok may be contesting the Raub parliamentary seat in the 14th general election (GE14).
The Chinese-language Sin Chew Daily recently quoted Kok, who is the Seputeh MP, as saying "anything is possible" when asked if she would be contesting the Raub seat.
"It is common to meet opponents in any general election. To fight the war, you have to be confident. We have to be positive and I am full of positive energy," Chew said.
Chew stepped down as the Deputy Women, Family and Community Minister when her tenure as senator ended in June 2017.
