“We hope that GE14 will bring good news to the MCA at state and national level”
IPOH: The MCA hopes to wrest the Gopeng parliamentary seat from the Opposition in the coming 14th general election (GE14).
Its secretary-general, Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan said Gopeng parliamentary constituency was one of the party’s stronghold from 1986 to 2004 until the loss in the 2008 and 2013 general elections.
He said that wresting Gopeng seat from the Opposition was not impossible to achieve if the election machinery works hard and give their undivided support to the candidate and the party.
“Winning the Gopeng seat is not impossible provided we receive support from party members and the public,” he told reporters after opening the Gopeng MCA division annual general meeting, here today.
Ong said the MCA will redouble efforts to strengthen the party machinery to regain the support of voters, especially the Chinese.
“We hope that GE14 will bring good news to the MCA at state and national level.”
Former MCA president Datuk Seri Tan Koon Swan won the Gopeng seat in 1986 while Tan Sri Dr Ting Chew Peh won the seat in 2004. They contested on the Barisan Nasional (BN) ticket.
