MCA has betrayed Balakong voters' trust by working with Pas: PH


SHAH ALAM: Pakatan Harapan (PH) said MCA has betrayed the trust of voters in the Balakong state constituency, especially the non-Muslims, by openly cooperating with Pas despite knowing the party's intention to form a theocratic government in the country.

Its Balakong by-election chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah said the collaboration proved that MCA’s claims all the while that it disagreed with Pas' plan was a lie.

“Last night, Pas secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan spoke on MCA stage to support MCA candidate, Tan Chee Teong. This clearly shows that MCA has been working with Pas.

“So what MCA's been saying that they reject Pas’ intention to create a theocratic government is not true,” said the Seri Kembangan assemblyman at the Selangor state legislative assembly lobby here today.

Hence, he urged MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and his deputy Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong to come forward and explain their stand on the matter to voters in Balakong.

For the first time yesterday, Pas’ top leaders attended the MCA campaign 'ceramah' for the Balakong by-election in Taman Tun Perak.

The by-election on Aug 8 is witnessing a straight fight between PH candidate Wong Siew Ki and MCA candidate Tan Chee Teong. -- BERNAMA © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
