In the Chinese Press: Liow to team up with Wee?

Ong Ka Chuan has voiced his full support for Liow (pix) to go for the top MCA post while pledging to assist his deputy president too.

( –  “Once the new leadership overturns the resolution of ‘not taking up government post’, these leaders can be appointed as cabinet ministers.”

Most Chinese dailies have predicted that MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai will team up with Datuk Wee Ka Siong in his bid for the MCA presidency in the upcoming party elections.

Both Sin Chew Daily and China Press quoted internal sources as saying that Liow would most probably join forces with the MCA Youth chief in the race for the top two posts.
Sin Chew said Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan and Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai could also be Liow’s potential partners. However, latest indications are that both of them are not keen to go for the deputy president’s post.
Ong announced yesterday that he had no intention of contesting in the party elections and that he had told Liow “no need to consider” including him in his line-up, Sin Chew reported.
Nevertheless, he voiced his full support for Liow to go for the top post while pledging to assist the deputy president in forming his team for the race.
Sin Chew quoted a source as saying that for the Ong, a senior government post was more attractive compared to a party post.
