Press statement: No for THE STAR Chairmanship

(吉隆坡11日讯)马华署理总会长拿督斯里蔡细历医生今日声明,他不会接受受委为《星报》集团新任主席。

他今日发文告证实受党推荐出任《星报》主席一职的消息。

蔡细历坦承,党领导层确实有讨论,也向他提出推荐事宜,惟他将拒绝接受此献议。

他坚认,自己目前仍然是一名活跃的政治人物,而且兼任马华和国阵高职,因此不该担任媒体机构的主席或要职。

“我希望《星报》能继续壮大 。为了顾全马华、《星报》股东及读者的最大利益,我决定不接受有关推荐。”

蔡细历藉此机会感谢党领导层对他的信任和推荐。


MCA Deputy President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek today stated his decision not to accept the appointment as Star Group Chairman.

In a press statement, Chua confirmed the speculation sparked by two chinese news papers few days earlier.

“The party leadership discussed on that and I was recommended for the post. In view of the fact that I am still active politically, It is best I am not accepting offer. ”

Chua said, the decision was made based on the best interest of the Party, Star shareholders and readers.

He strongly feel that it is inappropriate for him to hold top position in a media company while he is still actively involve in politics.

“I want to see The Star grows from strength to strength and I would like take this opportunity to thank the leadership for it confident in me.”
