PETALING JAYA: Newly appointed state executive councillors Ling Tian Soon and Lee Ting Han have won the hearts of the community in Johor with their work performances, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
"Although Ling and Lee are 38 and 32 years old respectively and are new faces in the political arena, they both have performed well since they were appointed as exco members.
"They help Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi (Johor Mentri Besar) in carrying out his duties and always work as a team.
"Just like Onn Hafiz, they (Ling and Lee) are young people who are energetic, diligent, professional and have a clear vision in leading their respective portfolios.
"This is the feedback I have received from all walks of life in Johor," said the Transport Minister who is also MCA president in a Facebook post.
Dr Wee also praised the Mentri Besar’s special officer Chua Jian Boon for his role in helping Onn Hafiz with the state affairs.
"Praise should be given to Chua, a dynamic young leader who is the special officer to the Johor Mentri Besar.
"He helps a lot with the Mentri Besar office's official affairs and travels to all corners of Johor.
"To all three young people - Ling, Lee and Chua - continue your efforts to help the Mentri Besar, the state government, Barisan Nasional and continue to prioritise the interests of the people," he said.
Dr Wee was in Kota Iskandar, Johor during the appointment and oath-taking ceremony of Chinese community leaders Sunday (July 31).
Also present were Senator Datuk Lim Pay Hen, Bekok assemblyman Tan Chong, Pekan Nanas assemblyman Tan Eng Meng and several Johor MCA leaders.
