Chua sheds light on MCA’s contributions to the community
PUTRAJAYA: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has enlightened the Chinese on MCA's contributions to and concern for the community in his debate with DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, said Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
He said Dr Chua carried himself well at the debate and made convincing arguments on the role of the MCA and the BN on the development of the Chinese community without criticising or blaming the opposition.
"Feedback shows that the Chinese community suddenly woke up and realised that the MCA has done quite a lot for them and we have always been working together.
"Please remember that whatever decision we make is based on consensus; there is no bullying by any party, big or small," he said after presenting the 1Malaysia People's Aid (BR1M) to about 1,600 people from the Putrajaya parliamentary constituency here yesterday.
Dr Chua and Guan Eng conducted a debate in Mandarin on the topic "Chinese at the Crossroads: Is the Two-Party System Becoming a Two-Race System?" at Berjaya Times Square on Saturday.
Organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute and the MCA think-tank Insap, the debate was moderated by Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall chief executive officer Tang Ah Chai.
It was broadcast in Mandarin on Astro AEC, with a simultaneous translation in Bahasa Malaysia on Astro Awani, and aired over the Star's 988FM.
Tengku Adnan, who is also Umno secretary-general, said the support from the Chinese community was on the rise just like that of the Malays and Indians as the people realised that only the BN could look after their welfare and prosperity.
Meanwhile, he said, seat-swapping among BN component parties for the next general election was discussed at the BN supreme council meeting, but no final decision was made. Bernama
