Time for MCA to engage the people

Time for MCA to engage the people

Wong Kai Shyuan deleted so many emails and SMSes (short messaging service) on his handphone last week that his fingers still hurt.

The messages he received were from candidates contesting in the MCA national elections last Saturday.

Wong is a central delegate who voted at the elections and thus a prime target of election hopefuls.

Even his telco friends complained to him that the service was congested because of the MCA elections.

"This shows that our members know how to make use of social media very well.

"If only they had used their skills to attack the Opposition in the May 5 general election," lamented Wong at the debate during the party's annual general meeting on Sunday.

Those at the AGM may laugh over Wong's "plight" but this is really no laughing matter. The leadership already recognises the urgency to start preparing for the next big battle ahead - the 14th general election (GE14).

First, they must get their members to start working now instead of waiting until Nomination Day.
