MCA YOUTH - CREATE A DEPUTY CHAIRMAN NO. 2 POSITION FOR NON-MALAYS

The outgoing MCA Youth Chairman Datuk Liow Tiong Lai who is also the Health Minister at the MCA Youth wing’s 45th Annual General Meeting today had called upon the Barisan Nasional leadership to create a Deputy Chairman 2 position so that a non-UMNO member could be appointed and serve the non-UMNO coalition parties in their decision making.

This request was overwhelmingly welcomed by the delegates at the Assembly, a starting point in the reform of the Barisan Nasional leadership where every coalition partner would be well represented unlike now which seem to be totally controlled by UMNO.

In reaction, Education Minister and BN Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, who attended the Assembly stated that the BN leadership will have to decide but appreciated such a move would create better relationship among the coalition partners.

Will the BN create such a position and accommodate MCA, the second largest coalition partners, request?
