The DAP supremo says that while he agrees with the concept of control and balance, MCA must reform itself before it can be considered by voters.
BANGI: DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang today rejected the idea that MCA plays the role of check and balance, and says the party must reform itself before it can be considered by voters.
"At the moment it is important to change the abuse of power that has been going on for 60 years," he said. "That is more important than what MCA said (about checks and balances).
"What role can MCA play? It is part of a 60-year-old Barisan Nasional (BN) government who has been involved in abuse of power."
After talking to a coffee house here today, he told journalists, he said Pakatan Harapan (PH) wanted to eliminate all such practices.
"We want to start again, on a clean slate, we can not return.
"We agree with the concept of control and balance, but MCA can not play this role."
Also present at the interview were PH & # 39; s candidate for the Balakong election Wong Siew Ki and Seri Kembangan assembler Ean Yong Hian Wah.
Lim, who is Iskandar Puteri MP, said that MCA "had to be clean and convicted (former prime minister) Najib Razak and 1MDB" before it could be considered by voters, adding that it had not worked so far.
Tan Chee Teong, MCA & # 39; s candidate for the Balakong interim election, had expressed his purpose to be a control and balance in the state meeting.
He said he would also push the government to defeat his manifesto.
Wong reportedly shot Tan & # 39; s manifesto and said that PH MCA did not need to serve as control and balance in Selangor.
The seat of Balakong fell empty after the death of the mechanic, Eddie Ng of DAP, in an accident on the Grand Saga Expressway on 20 July.
The interim election will take place on 8 September.
