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.
