Rejection of good candidates angers Ka Siong

The MCA Youth has chastised its party leaders for deciding to sideline certain candidates from contesting in the March 28 elections, saying the move will jeopardise the future of the party.

“How are we to convince the younger members to join the party if candidates of calibre like Wong Nai Chee are rejected? I find this very disappointing and it now appears to be a plot to purge them,” Youth chief Wee Ka Siong said.

He was responding to secretary-general Wong Foon Men’s announcement that two former central committee members – Wong Mook Leong and Nai Chee – did not qualify to contest in the upcoming polls.

He said this was not the time for MCA to lose good workers such as Nai Chee who often speaks without fear or favour.

“He (Nai Chee) is committed to the party, he speaks three languages. I cannot understand why the party is rejecting him. I believe the party must look within and decide. We should not discard people who have pledged their commitment and support to the party,” he said.

Wee and Women’s chief Chew Mei Fun incurred the wrath of MCA leaders when they walked out of a central committee meeting last month after they objected to the CC decision to go ahead with the Youth and women wings' elections amidst the ongoing uncertainties in the party.
