(The Star) - MCA has challenged DAP to name four key ministers should Pakatan Rakyat take over Putrajaya in the general election.
Party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said he could accept DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng’s claim that the party’s political struggle did not include wanting to hold ministerial posts.
“As a rakyat and voter, I want DAP to tell us who will be the ministers of finance, education, defence and international trade,” said Dr Chua.
“Be concerned for the rakyat because they are concerned over who will those ministers be.
“It is not fair for the rakyat to see them fighting for power if they come into power,” he told reporters at the Muar Welfare and Vision Association anniversary dinner here on Thursday.
Dr Chua also dared DAP to state its stand over claims the Kedah government had approved a RM36bil hydrocarbon hub project and other projects in the state without open tenders.
He questioned why DAP, “which emphasises a lot on open tender, has not spoken up on the issue”.
Kedah Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang had claimed that the Sungai Limau Hydrocar-bon Hub project in Yan was awarded to a private firm without an open tender.
He also claimed that three other projects — the RM500mil Aman Central shopping centre, the RM109mil Amansuri Residences and the RM330mil permanent campus of Kolej Universiti Insaniah — were awarded without open tenders.
