JOHOR BARU: The MCA should field a mix of young and old candidates for the next general election, the party’s Young Professionals Bureau chairman Datuk Chua Tee Yong said.
He said that although more of the young were participating actively, the older ones should not be overlooked.
“Senior politicians have experience while younger politicians have the energy to go down to the ground and help the people.
“By combining the talents of both groups, we will be able to come up with the best approach to help the people,” Chua, who is Labis MP, told reporters at his Chinese New Year open house at the Tenang Station multi-purpose hall here yesterday.
Also present was MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
Tee Yong said the bureau would wait for the final decision on the candidates chosen and “work towards addressing the needs of the people”.
“With the continuous support of the people, the Government will be able to bring about positive change to the country,” he said.
