KOTA BARU: MCA Wanita head Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen is trying to become the first woman to hold a senior post in the party after she formally declared her intention to contest the party’s vice-president’s post.
Dr Ng, who made the declaration before the entire Kelantan MCA leadership, said it was the first time in the 59 years of MCA’s existence that a woman is offering to contest one of its top posts.
”I am not comparing myself to other candidates. I am looking at my own strengths and hope to convince delegates that I am qualified to help MCA steer through a difficult political scene,” she told a press conference Friday.
She said she came to the decision based on the feedback from delegates nationwide who have indicated support for her decision.
”I am hoping to be the voice of women in mainstream politics.”
Dr Ng said she represents about 430,000 Wanita MCA members who made up about 37% of the party’s total membership.
She is driven by the fact that none of the main Barisan parties have women as vice-presidents within their ranks.
Women are slowing being recognised, she said, alluding to the decision by the US Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s decision to select a woman, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.
Later, Dr Ng said she hopes to convince Barisan to study why there is a loss of support in some circles of the Chinese community.
”There must also be a discussion on how to regain support.”
Dr Ng said there must be a holistic approach to tackle the perception that Umno is a racist party while the other component parties in Barisan have lost their voice. She added that this can be done by advocating a more transparent approach in multi-racialism policies and activities conducted by Barisan.
Even MCA must look at organising more multi-racialism activities to be seen as a devoted and strong component of Barisan, she added.
