JOHOR BARU: MCA has to be united from top to bottom to ensure that the party wins the Johor state election.

Its secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon, hopes all members can be ready and move together as a party in the upcoming polls, rather than focusing on personal agendas.

“This will then benefit the people as well as MCA and Barisan Nasional as a whole,” he said after attending a meeting for component parties with Barisan chairman, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, at the Johor Umno headquarters here on Wednesday (Jan 26).

In the closed-door meeting, Ahmad Zahid, Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and Johor Barisan chief Datuk Hasni Mohammad each gave a speech.

Hasni is also the the caretaker Mentri Besar.

On the speeches, Chong said that Ahmad Zahid has made it clear in the meeting that all of Barisan’s component parties must win big to ensure that Johor is administered by a multi-cultural government.

Chong added it meant that all component parties have to work hard to get support from all races in order to realise that mission.

When asked about whether MCA would field more young candidates this time round, he said, “of course”.

“We will definitely have more young candidates compared to the previous general election,” he said, adding the seat allocation for Johor’s 56 seats has yet to be finalised.
