Kota Baru: MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said PAS was indirectly helping the DAP in the Machap by-election in Melaka to be held on April 12 by openly stating that the party would not contest the seat.
"This is a kind of collaboration.The reason PAS does not intend to contest is because it wants to help the DAP," he
told reporters before officiating an MCA
training workshop here Thursday. He
said Pas very well knew that most of the time in the past the seat had been contested by the DAP and would be helping the latter behind the scenes.
On another matter, Ong said that Kelantan MCA
would work closely with the other Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties to ensure the coalition wrested the state from Pas in the next general election. He
was confident that voters in Kelantan would support the BN as Pas had not brought any development for the state.
Meanwhile, IN MELAKA, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam listed at least five factors for his
confidence that the BN will retain the Machap sea. He
did not see any problem for the BN victory because Macap was a BN stronghold.
