BN's GE15 win in Chenderiang shows that it still has multi-racial support, says Wee

PETALING JAYA: Barisan Nasional winning the Chenderiang seat in the 15th General Election (GE15) despite facing stiff competition shows that the coalition still has support from a diverse voter base, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The MCA president said that Barisan's candidate Choong Shin Heng, who managed to win the state seat in GE15 was proof that Barisan had strong support from different races in the Tapah parliamentary constituency due to its excellent service record.

Dr Wee urged Choong to continue the hard work and be the voice of the people, regardless of their religious or racial background.

"I hope that the Chenderiang service centre launched on Sunday (March 26) will also improve the service quality of Barisan and MCA representatives as well as continue to fight for the interests of the people.

"This is a continuation of the good work that has been done since Tan Sri Ong Ka Chuan, Datuk Chang Kon You and Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, who were the state assemblymen for this constituency.

"I am happy to see so many of MCA grassroots and local residents attending the launch of the Chenderiang service centre, which I officiated, and the appreciation lunch of the GE15 election mechanism at Bukit Pagar in Tapah," said Dr Wee in a statement on Sunday (March 26).

Also present at the ceremony were MCA deputy president and Tapah MCA division chairman Dato Dr Mah Hang Soon, former MCA secretary-general and Tapah MCA advisor Tan Sri Ong Ka Chuan, as well as other Barisan leaders and members.
