MCA To Forward Proposals To Re-Take Selangor
PUTRAJAYA, Sept 14 -– The Selangor MCA will forward proposals to the state and national Barisan Nasional (BN) to wrest Selangor from the opposition pact of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in the next general election.
While admitting the MCA might face an uphill battle, especially in theKlangValley, state party chief Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai said fielding the right candidates would improve BN’s chances of winning the election.
“MCA has held discussions and our target is to win back Selangor for BN. That is our goal,” he said.
Lim, who is also MCA vice-president and finance deputy minister, was speaking to reporters after attending the excellent service awards ceremony of the Accountant-General’s Department of Malaysia here today.
Currently, PR’s loose opposition pact has 35 out of the state assembly’s 56 seats. The Port Klang seat is held by BN-friendly independent Badrul Hisham Abdullah who left Parti Keadilan Rakyat in 2009.
BN needs to win nine more seats, on top of their current 20, at the next general election to re-take Selangor.
At the event, 177 department staff received excellent service awards for their performance last year.
Meanwhile, Lim called on the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigateShahAlamCitycouncillors who allegedly requested contracts from the mayor.
