MCA does not want a culture of political extremism creeping into Sabah – Wee

KOTA KINABALU: MCA President Dato Seri Wee Ka Siong has expressed his hope that a political culture of extremism does not permeate Sabah.


Therefore, he said the concept of diversity and moderation in politics continues to be MCA’s main tenet to bring the party to greater heights.

He said moderation is a practise that successfully unites people of multiple races despite facing various challenges and obstacles.

Accordingly, Wee hopes that the harmony and political stability enjoyed by the people of Sabah can be maintained.

“Sabah is known for its diversity of races and people who live in harmony. We do not want to see elements of extremism seeping into this state,” he said.

Wee told reporters after officiating the MCA convention here today.

Also present was the Sabah MCA chairman, Lu Yen Tung.

Wee said that after 32 years of being established in Sabah, MCA is now getting stronger and is well received by the people of this state.

He said MCA hopes to attract more young people to join the party.

Asked about former Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Yong Teck Lee’s call for the national parties not to participate in the next Sabah election, Wee said it showed how low the prestige of the party from the peninsula was in his view.

“It’s strange that he (Yong) himself plays in two political ponds (supporting PN while at the same time supporting GRS),” he said.

Wee said MCA also reiterated its support for the GRS government to ensure continued political stability in the state, thereby boosting economic development programmes for the good of the people.
