GE15: MCA contesting Batu instead of MIC, says Wee
Caretaker transport minister says allocation confirmed after meeting with Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi
KUALA LUMPUR – MCA is set to contest the Batu parliamentary seat instead of MIC, despite Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s announcement last night.
Party president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong told a press conference at MCA headquarters here that following discussions with Zahid, the BN component party would contest Batu after it had given the Padang Serai parliamentary seat to MIC.
“After meeting with the BN chairman, it’s confirmed that Batu is indeed MCA’s,” Wee said.
During the unveiling of BN’s candidates for the coming general election (GE15) last night, Zahid had initially announced that MIC’s A. Kohilan Pillay would be standing in Batu.
