Dr M won’t generate Malay tsunami, says ex-MCA boss
However, former MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek is pessimistic that the man with whom he fought alongside in five general elections will be able to pull this off.
According to Chua, the former prime minister’s impact would be limited to Malay voters in urban constituencies, but not those in the rural areas.
“No other party has taken care of the Malays like Umno has. They (Malay voters in rural constituencies) fear change,” the former MCA president told Malaysiakini.
On the same note, he pointed out that the Mahathir factor could pose a threat to Umno and BN in Kedah, which is the former prime minister’s home state.

He also claimed that certain quarters find it difficult to accept former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim and DAP working with Mahathir.

MCA head Chua Soi Lek to step down sometime this year
Chua, who also announced that the party’s election would be held as soon as next month, said he would resign when the time is right.
“I would go at an appropriate moment where everything is put in place and in order.
“There are lots of loose ends to tie up before I leave,” said Chua at a press conference here just now.
Chua also refuted claims that he is stepping down because of the pressure from the people urging him to do so, and that a majority of party members still want him to stay.
