Component Parties To Suggest Improvements At BN Convention

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 9 (Bernama) -- The Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties will submit feedback and suggestions on improvements at the BN Convention scheduled to be held next year.

MCA vice-president Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said the BN members were looking forward to the BN Convention as the grassroots would be able to make suggestions and give their feedback directly to the BN top leadership.

"The convention is crucial to the BN as it can ensure that the coalition is relevant to the people of various races. The MCA has many suggestions...Let all these be discussed during the convention," he told reporters after attending the BN Supreme Council meeting here.

The meeting, which lasted three-and-a-half hours, was attended by representatives of all the BN component parties and chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is also the BN chairman.

Liow, who is also the Health Minister, said the MCA held many brainstorming sessions among its members shortly after the 12th general election on March 8 and had gathered several suggestions aimed at improving the BN.

"We will present these suggestions at the convention," he said.

Meanwhile, Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the BN Convention would enable discussion to be held on the effectiveness of the BN in fulfilling the aspiration of the people.

"This is an indication that the BN top leadership continues to respond to the aspiration of the people, particularly the young generation. Many suggestions would be presented by various parties so that the BN would be more sensitive to the needs of the people," he said.

Dr Koh also said the BN conceded that it still had weaknesses or inadequacies and hoped that these could be overcome after the convention.
