KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wants MCA leaders to close rank and stop any infighting that had caused the Chinese party support from the Chinese community.
Najib, who is also the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, said as a component party, he needed the MCA to be strong and united, so it could help to bring back the Chinese support for the coalition in the next general election.
“The future of MCA depends on unity. Be together and be stronger together. MCA is our partner. MCA should not fight among themselves. Enough. Don’t fight anymore,” he said when opening the 61st MCA annual general assembly at Wisma MCA in the capital, Sunday.
The Prime Minister pointed out that if the leaders continued to fight, not only that nothing would be done, the people, particularly the Chinese community would get bored with them.
Najib said that infighting had also caused the party to lose its sense of direction. – Bernama
