MCA gives up Gelang Patah – Do the same for 25 other seats!

JOHOR BAHRI, 15 April 2013 : DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang has expressed his disappointment at not being able to contest against MCA party president Chua Soi Lek in the Gelang Patah parliamentary seat in the coming general elections (GE).

“Finally the die is cast. From all accounts, MCA has surrendered the Gelang Patah parliamentary seat to UMNO and the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate will be the popular four-term Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman,” he said in a press conference held today in Johor Bahru.

“I had expected to meet a MCA ‘big gun’ in Gelang Patah – and who could compare with MCA President Chua Soi Lek as a MCA ‘big gun’ with his unforgettable boast of “I consider myself a winnable candidate anywhere I go” during the MCA 58th annual general assembly in Kuala Lumpur on October 1, 2011 -. I had not expected to meet any UMNO ‘big gun’ at all.”

Lim pointed out Gelang Patah had been a historic MCA fortress, with a voter racial make-up of 53 per cent Chinese, 34 per cent Malay and 12 per cent Indian voters.

“If MCA has to surrender to UMNO an electoral constituency where there is a majority 53 percent Chinese voters, then MCA will have to surrender to UMNO another 25 parliamentary seats and 33 State Assembly seats with a Chinese voter percentage of less than 52 percent!”
