The relevancy of MCA remains question

Prime Minister and Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wants the MCA to emerge strong and stable after the party’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on Saturday.

He reiterated that a strong and stable MCA was needed in getting and delivering the support of the Chinese community to the coalition.

The question arises: Can MCA emerge strong and stable after the party’s EGM on Saturday?

Although the Chinese still talk about within the community, most do not care if MCA were to collapse.

Over the last election, the Chinese protesting vote is increasing. The EGM will only allow MCA to solve its internal conflicts or to remain in crisis otherwise. It is not the question how the party is going to regain Chinese votes.

To the Chinese, they said MCA overlooked the interest of the community.

No matter what the outcome of the alleged power struggle, the relevancy of MCA and to reach out to its traditional constituency remains question.
