Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said he would step down as MCA president sometime between next month and December claiming responsibility for the party's poor performance in GE13.

Chua, who also announced that the party's election would be held as soon as next month, said he would resign when the time is right.

"I would go at an appropriate moment where everything is put in place and in order.

"There are lots of loose ends to tie up before I leave," said Chua at a press conference here just now.

Chua also refuted claims that he is stepping down because of the pressure from the people urging him to do so, and that a majority of party members still want him to stay.
