MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong today announced Ng Yew Aik as the party’s 15th and final candidate from the party to represent Barisan Nasional (BN), contesting the Puteri Wangsa seat in the Johor election.


Wee announced Tebrau MCA division chief Ng as the candidate at the party’s 73rd Anniversary celebration, at the Che Ann Khor Yong Peng Moral Lifting Society hall.

Speaking to reporters, Wee said MCA will be contesting the Puteri Wangsa state seat for the first time, and pledged to work hard to ensure BN’s victory in the Johor polls.

He said the MCA election machinery was ready to help all BN candidates, regardless of which the component party, so that BN would obtain the mandate to govern Johor.

He described MCA’s victory in the Johor polls as very important, as the party did not have come away with any state seat during the 14th general election.

“This is very important because, in the composition of the Johor government elected in 2018, MCA did not have any representative.


“Hence, we must make up for the defeat to reflect the plural society of Johor, so that no race is left behind in the current development of the country,” he said.

He also said that out of the 15 MCA candidates featured in the Johor polls on March 12, 10 candidates are new faces, who are seen to be able to gain the confidence of young voters.
