MCA will use its own logo, a Star.
MCA President Liow Tiong Lai has said his party is open to working with all opposition parties, including PAS, in the Balakong by-election.
“We will work with every party regardless of which component (they are part of).
“The most important ting is they are an opposition party,” he said at a press conference after launching the party’s operation room in Balakong today.
“The opposition pact has to work together to fight the government, because the government has not fulfilled many promises,” he claimed.
When asked if he was open to working with PAS, he said MCA was open to working with anyone as long as they were on the same page.
“(We will work with) anybody who has the same agenda, any party that has the agenda to check and balance the government,” he said.
Admitting the party was an underdog in the Sept 8 by-election, he urged voters to “give MCA a chance” to have a voice in the Selangor legislative assembly.
In Balakong, MCA to ditch BN logo
MCA president says the decision is part of the party’s reforms.
KUALA LUMPUR: MCA said it was abandoning the Barisan Nasional (BN) logo at the upcoming Balakong by-election in Selangor for the party’s blue-and-yellow “star” logo, saying it was part of “internal reforms” following its weak performance in the recent general election.
“We have heard the voices of the public and we agree that the party needs internal reforms. The decision to use the MCA’s logo is part of the many reforms that will take place in the near future,” said MCA president Liow Tiong Lai after chairing a meeting with top party leaders today.
“We have to focus on our internal reforms before we can talk about the BN coalition,” he said.
