The President of MCA, Datuk Seri Liow Liow Tiong Lai called the media this Thursday to make them understand that it is very important for them to report the correct news to the public and make it as accurate as possible. ‘Politics and media need each other. We need the media as an effective bridge between us and the people and to also listen to their problems as constituents,’ he said while attending an annual dinner organized by the party for media practitioners at Wisma MCA.
MCA is going ahead with its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on February 23 to seek members’ approval to return to government, despite coming under fire from several leaders over the move. The Chinese party is confident the EGM would not affect the party’s preparations to face the March 23 Kajang by-election.
The EGM, to be held together with the party’s anniversary celebrations in Wisma MCA, will see delegates voting on a resolution to enable the Chinese party leaders to take up posts at federal, state and local levels. The, despite the fact that in an earlier EGM held last October 20, members had voted to allow leaders to take up posts at state and local authority levels. At the same time, they voted against its leaders taking up cabinet positions. ‘The resolution was submitted by the requisitionists and we have no power to change it,’ said LIow.
