YEN YEN: 3+1 formula can bring about changes in MCA


The “three plus one” formula for MCA vice-presidents is a perfect combination to bring about changes in the MCA, said MCA Wanita chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen who is vying for vice-president’s post.

“The combination of three men and a woman for vice-presidents is a new platform in the party,” she said after attending the launch of a Welfare Services Department guidebook here today.

Dr Ng, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister, said she hoped she would be able to introduce changes in the party by offering herself for the post.

Asked how she rates her chances, she said, “I believe in my ability, otherwise you (the press) will have to help me next season (election). It is time for me to fight for bigger objectives after pursuing the MCA Wanita struggle for 33 years.” She said the delegates should vote for capable candidates based on their records, capabilities and commitment to the party.

“This must not be viewed from the gender perspective, although some say that it is very risky. I take the challenge to create a history in MCA.
“It is high time for me to contest as I do not see other opportunities ahead,” she said, adding that, it would be the first time in the MCA’s 59-year history a Wanita member is vying for a senior party post.

There are five others in the race. They are vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung, Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Kong Cho Ha, Youth Chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai who is also Health Minister and Johor state executive councillor Datuk Tan Kok Hon.
