KUALA LUMPUR: MCA has taken a swipe at Pakatan Harapan over the coalition's flip-flopping decisions over their choice of Prime Minister.

Party president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (pic) said it was even better to watch a cook flip roti canai than to follow Pakatan's continuous U-turns.

"Firstly they wanted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to remain as Prime Minister. Then they backed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

"And this morning, they reversed their decision again to support Dr Mahathir. If we keep following up with what they say, soon our brains will have problems.

"It's better for us to go to a mamak shop to have roti canai and see how the cook peng lai, peng khi (hokkien for flip here, flip there)," he said in his speech during MCA's 71st anniversary celebration here on Saturday (Feb 29).

MCA's two MPs - Ka Siong and Datuk Seri Dr Wee Jeck Seng - will support Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as the eighth Prime Minister, together with Umno's 39 MPs and the sole MP from MIC.

Ka Siong said no matter who formed the Government, the diversity of the team will be the core element that cannot be compromised.

"MCA needs to ensure that this coalition maintains its diversity to preserve and display the value of diversity of this nation, no matter who is in power," he said.

The anniversary celebration today began with an inspection on MCA Youth's guard of honour and a dancing and singing performance.

Among those present were former MCA leaders Tan Sri Tan Koon Swan, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Tun Michael Chen, Tan Sri Lim Ah Lek, Tan Sri Chan Kong Choy and Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan.
