Penang MCA respects Tsu Koon’s appointment

PUTRAJAYA, 21 May 2009: MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the decision by the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman to appoint Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon as Penang BN Liaison Committee chairman would be respected, despite the “voices of resentment on the ground”.

Liow, who is also Penang MCA Liaison Committee chairperson, however, said the Gerakan president should make a lot of changes and take a different approach in handling the issues in Penang.

“If we want to win the state in future, he should not use the normal approach. He should actually cultivate and train younger leaders to handle the issues in Penang,” he told reporters, here, today.

Liow was asked to comment on the disappointment of MCA members in Penang on Koh’s appointment, which was announced by BN chairperson Datuk Seri Najib Razak on 18 May.

Liow said Koh must take the situation in Penang very seriously, and that cooperation among the coalition members must also be stressed.

“Gerakan alone cannot win Penang. It must have the support of the MCA and Umno to win back the state,” he said. — Bernama

    To win back Penang … NEXT LIFE or when?

    There you are.

    MCA has said clearly that Penang can be won with help from Gerakan, Umno and MCA.

    MIC, PPP, the newly formed Makkal Sakthi all can forget about their need to participate in this task.

    MCA has indirectly said that your efforts are not needed.

    So much for BN sensitivities towards component parties.

    Who needs enemies if there are component parties that talk like this?

    BN can keep on dreaming about Penang!

    Woo, perhaps some of our feng shui experts and astrologist might be able to shed some light on this.
