Group wants MCA to stay out of Bukit Gelugor

April 28, 2014

It asks for new players like the PFP, a BN friendly party, to be given a chance to woo back the Chinese votes.

GEORGE TOWN: A certain influential group within Barisan Nasional is lobbying the coalition’s top brass for MCA to stay out of the upcoming Bukit Gelugor by-election.

The group, comprising elected representatives and leaders of BN component parties, believes that MCA does not stand a chance in turning the tide in BN’s favour at the polls.

Sources cited the Bukit Gelugor results in GE13, specifically the Chinese voters’ rejection of MCA, as the main reason behind the “keep MCA out of Bukit Gelugor” lobby.

New political party in Penang

April 28, 2014

They do not have a party logo yet, but they will be ready with a candidate for the Bukit Gelugor by-election.

GEORGE TOWN: A group of 44 local non-government organisations (NGOs) and temple committees, has formed an anti-DAP political party, predominantly Chinese based, to be known as the Penang Front Party (PFP).

The PFP’s immediate political task is to field a candidate for the upcoming Bukit Gelugor by-election.

And its long term goal is to “save Penang from the DAP”.

Forms to register the party will be submitted to the Register of Societies (RoS) today.

Speaking at a press conference in a restaurant in Bayan Baru today, the PFP pro tem committee chairman, local businessman Go Chui Tiong, said the party had shortlisted three candidates for the by-election.

“We will decide on the right candidate and the party logo in time for Bukit Gelugor,” said Go.

He added that due to its anti-DAP stance, PFP will have political leanings toward Barisan Nasional and other anti-DAP and anti-Pakatan Rakyat groups.

Go said he was confident PFP would be able to upstage the BN candidate from MCA in Bukit Gelugor.

He believes PFP can win more Chinese votes than MCA due its base as a lay public movement.
