KUALA LUMPUR: Voting for the MCA Wanita and Youth wing leadership ended smoothly at 7pm on Saturday (Sept 23).
Party secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon said results at the divisional level were expected to come in from the various states nationwide from 8pm.
"We expect the vote count and tallying to not take too long, as those voting only involved over 4,000 delegates," he said, adding that the voter turnout was not very high.
Chong said a new leadership lineup for both the Wanita and Youth wings would be known by about 10pm on Saturday.
There was a three-cornered fight for the MCA Youth chief position between party organising secretary Ling Tian Soon, Youth secretary-general Daniel Wa Wai How and Klang MCA Youth member Bernard Chan Kee Siang.
Wong You Fong would meanwhile be defending her Wanita MCA chairman post in a straight fight against Datuk Ooi Siew Kim.
Ooi was the Penang Wanita MCA chairman and Bayan Baru division chief.
Elections for the central party committee will take place on Sunday (Sept 24).

A total of 160 polling stations had been set up nationwide for the central committee election, comprising 149 divisional polling stations and 11 joint divisional polling stations.
