Liow echoes Najib, warns Chinese of ramifications
MCA president Liow Tiong Lai today said the upcoming general election will see the Chinese community choosing whether or not they want to be represented in the cabinet.
“If the Chinese don’t back BN Chinese parties, they will be giving up their representation in cabinet.
“In terms of protecting Chinese interests, this is akin going into reverse gear and putting the Chinese in a difficult spot,” he said in a Facebook post today.
Liow’s warning came one day after Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak declared that he could not reserve four or five spots on his cabinet for Chinese representatives should the community vote against BN.
“So they (Chinese voters) have to make a choice,” said Najib.

Nazri: MCA not voice of Chinese, DAP, ‘Tokong’ Guan Eng are
Umno supreme council member Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz has lashed out at MCA after its youth chief Chong Sin Woon said the former’s insults against tycoon Robert Kuok were tantamount to insulting all Chinese.
Nazri reiterated that Kuok did not represent the Chinese community and neither did the MCA.
“From my point of view, the party that won the most Chinese seats would be the voice of the Chinese. And that’s not MCA.
“Looking at the results of the 2013 general election, you can easily deduce the voice of the Chinese in Malaysia is DAP and the boss is ‘tokong’ (deity) Lim Guan Eng.
“That is why I work with him because he is the voice of the Chinese,” he told Malaysiakini.
Nazri, who is tourism and culture minister, earlier today declined to further wade into the Kuok matter but lashed out after Chong asked him to be a “real man” and apologise to Kuok.
While Nazri did not launch into a tirade against Kuok…..this time, the tourism and culture minister rebutted Chong’s claim that insulting Kuok was akin to insulting the whole Chinese community.
“He (Kuok) is not the voice of the Chinese, he just happens to be a Chinese,” he said, adding that the tycoon was based in Hong Kong.
Furthermore, Nazri said representing the Chinese would require one to stand in an election and win.
Chong had said that Nazri should show that he was a “real man” and apologise for attacking Kuok.
