Stay out of MCA affairs, Dr Wee tells Teresa Kok

PETALING JAYA: MCA president Dr Wee Ka Siong has taken Seputeh MP Teresa Kok to task for questioning MCA’s principles when DAP has joined forces with PAS before.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday (Jan 9), the MCA president hit back at the DAP vice-chairman, who claimed that MCA was 'lost' during an interview with Utusan Malaysia on Jan 7.

"Which party and coalition helped DAP to form the government after the 15th General Election? Who is the deputy prime minister now?

"Where are all the promises from DAP decades ago to the non-Malays, especially the Chinese? Teresa Kok, you do not deserve to talk about principles," said Dr Wee.

He said the formation of the government after the Pakatan Harapan administration fell in 2020 followed the decree of the then-Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

"I want to tell her that we cooperated with PAS to form the government because it was a Barisan decision. Who was the Barisan Nasional chairman at the time?" he asked.

He said the situation now is the same as MCA supports the ruling government to uphold the King's decree.

Dr Wee said Kok should have not condemned any other party, including MCA, as it is a “taboo” (pantang).

"Teresa Kok, are you issuing statements on behalf of the Madani government or DAP? You suggested that MCA should leave Barisan because you said MCA had no principles and was lost," he said.

Dr Wee added that Kok was not a spokesman for Barisan nor Umno and therefore had no standing to banish MCA from the coalition.

In the interview with Utusan Malaysia, Kok was quoted as saying MCA was "lost" when asked about the relationship between DAP and MCA in the unity government.
