MCA calls for Zahid's resignation for going against BN's decision
SHAH ALAM - Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is no longer fit to maintain his position over his failure to uphold the coalition's collective decision, says MCA.
MCA Secretary-General Datuk Chong Sin Woon clarifies that the remark in the letter to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong was completely out of line with the decision made by the BN Supreme Council in a meeting yesterday.
The content of the letter which had gone viral on social media has shown BN Chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s claim that the party has given their support for Pakatan Harapan chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the Prime Minister.
However, it does not align with the agreement achieved by the party after the two meetings.
“In both meetings, the BN Supreme Council had resolved that BN will not support anyone as the Prime Minister at this moment.
“In last night’s BN Supreme Council Meeting, MCA and other BN component parties were questioning why Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid had gone against BN’s resolution.
“At first, Datuk Sri Ahmad Zahid was in denial, but he admitted afterwards when evidence was produced,” he said in the statement.
He further said that MCA is of the view that Zahid Hamidi should no longer hold his position in the party as he “went against the collective decision by the BN Supreme Council yesterday, and did not communicate BN’s resolution correctly to the King”.
MCA demanded for his resignation and proposed for Datuk Mohamad Hassan to replace him as raised during the BN Supreme Council Meeting last night.
