MCA GIVES WAY IN PENANG: SWAP OF SEATS WITH BN PARTIES POSSIBLE – CHEW MEI FUN

KUALA LUMPUR – MCA is open to the idea of swapping seats in Penang with other Barisan Nasional component parties, says MCA vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.

She said MCA was open to new strategies to win seats as the party’s main aim was to serve the people better.

Chew, who was speaking at a Chinese New Year Care Project event at Wisma MCA here Saturday, was commenting on party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan’s remarks on Saturday that Penang MCA might swap seats with Barisan component parties in the next general election if certain candidates had a higher chance of winning at certain constituencies.

On the upcoming amendments of the party’s constitution on March 5, Chew said MCA would include a clause to set up a political studies school for party members.

“It will allow MCA to develop the school and outline modules to train our members systematically.

“The school can provide soft skills training and work out strategies that will be delivered to all members on the ground to prepare for the general election,” she said.

At the event, 300 underprivileged families from Kuala Lumpur and its vicinity received donations ahead of the Chinese New Year.
