Hishammuddin: MCA Leadership Crisis Will Impact BN

PUTRAJAYA, Oct 12 (Bernama) -- Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein on Monday expressed concern that the MCA leadership crisis will have a direct impact on the Barisan Nasional (BN).

"I think what happened in the MCA will not have a direct impact on Umno, but my concern is if what happened in MCA will have an impact on the BN and that will have to be looked at by the MCA leaders," he said after attending the Home Ministry's Hari Raya celebration here.

The MCA extraordinary general meeting on Saturday voted for two resolutions on no-confidence in party president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and annulment of Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek's suspension but rejected the third resolution to reinstate Dr Chua as deputy president.

Hishammuddin said what would happen to the MCA depended on the wisdom of its Central Committee which would be meeting on Thursday to discuss the outcome of the EGM.

On whether the MCA leadership crisis would be discussed at the Umno general assembly which will be held from tomorrow until Friday, he said they would not interfere in the affairs of other BN component parties.

Hishammuddin, who is home minister, said the skirmishes in the Bagan Pinang state by-election yesterday, which involved PAS supporters, showed that the party was now acting like Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and this was a matter for concern.
