Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today that it was up the MCA leadership whether to revoke their earlier stand not to accept any government posts.
He said the decision to review or rescind the stand was MCA’s right, while the Barisan Nasional (BN) would accept whatever decision is taken by them.
“If there is anything that they want to review or retract, it’s up to them... it is their right.
“I’m not sure whether it is the time for them to do so, some say it’s too early... about MCA, we leave it to MCA,” he said.
Muhyiddin was speaking to reporters after attending a thanksgiving function held at Sekolah Menengah Tengku Temenggong Ahmad in Kundang Ulu, here.
He was acompanied by his wife Puan Sri Norainee Abd Rahman. Also present were Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin and MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek (picture).
Muhyiddin was commenting on Dr Chua’s statement yesterday that the MCA’s decision not to accept any government posts at the federal or state levels could be reversed an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of the party of its annual general meeting in December if the majority of its central delegates wished so.
