KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA president, youth chief and women’s chief are all from the state of Johor.
In a party election held over the weekend, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr. Wee Ka Siong beat challenger Tan Chong Meng in a landslide victory.
Ling Tian Soon, Johor state executive councilor, replaced Nicole Wong as youth chief, while incumbent Wanita MCA chief Wong You Fong beat her challenger Ooi Siew Kim from Penang.
Dr. Wee said it was only a coincidence and they would not be only serving Johor but the entire country.
“This issue has been raised during the campaign period. We have gone through the election process and are voted for by the majority of members.
“There should be no issue here,” he said.
Wee also said this is not the first time for MCA to be in such a situation.
In 2005, several top party leaders were from Pahang while Johor was without a representative.
“Deputy president Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy, vice president Datuk Fu Ah Kiow, Wanita chief Tan Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen and youth chief Tan Sri Liow Tiong Lai were all from Pahang.
“This is a democratic process and we should respect the results.
“All of us serve the entire country,” he said.
