MCA polls: Voting ends at 7pm with 56% turnout, says sec-gen

KUALA LUMPUR: Voting for the MCA central party committee ended at 7pm on Sunday (Sept 24), says Datuk Chong Sin Woon.

The MCA secretary-general said the voter turnout among delegates was 56%.

"Having learned from Saturday's experience, the vote-counting and tallying should not take too long, with results expected at around 11pm," he said when met at the Dewan San Choon in Wisma MCA here on Sunday.

Chong said there were no complaints received throughout the voting process.

Nominations for the 2023 MCA elections took place on Sept 11.

It will be a straight fight for the MCA president post, with Dr Wee Ka Siong going up against former central committee member Datuk Tan Chong Seng.

Deputy president Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon received no challengers for his post.

The vice-presidential posts will see seven candidates vying for four spots.

They are incumbents Datuk Tan Teik Cheng, Datuk Lim Ban Hong and Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker as well as newcomers Datuk Seri Dr Wee Jeck Seng, Datuk Lawrence Low, Datuk Nicole Wong Siaw Ting and Dr Pamela Yong.

A total of 48 candidates are vying for the 25 central committee posts.

The central party polls involve some 29,000 MCA delegates and 605 electoral votes.

A total of 160 polling stations have been set up nationwide.

MCA will hold its annual general meeting (AGM) on Oct 21 and 22.
