PETALING JAYA: About 100 of MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s Facebook fans had the opportunity to meet him in person, pose questions on various issues and got treated to dinner.
They brought up topics like the Chinese community, the country, the party and the next general election.
When asked if he would defend his president’s post in the next party election, he said it was too early to tell.
“I am more concerned about the general election than the party election. I am more concerned about consolidating and strengthening the party and resolving long-standing issues so that it is more prepared for the next general election,” he added.
When asked when the general election would be held, he said: “If PKR continues fighting every day, there is a chance Barisan Nasional will hold it faster.”
On the proposed RM5bil 100-storey Warisan Merdeka, Dr Chua said those who objected to it were the same people who objected to the North-South Expressway (NSE), the Penang Bridge and other Federal Government projects.
“One must not forget that when the Government wanted to build the NSE, the Opposition went to court to get an injunction to stop it. Today people know its importance.”
He added that there would be another session with his fans before the Chinese New Year.
