New chairman Toh Chin Yaw said this was decided during the liaison committee meeting on Friday.
“We will open seven operation rooms and a public complaints bureau in the constituency. Party election workers will reuse the March 8 electoral list to identify the voters and come up with a strategy to lure them.
“We have received overwhelming support from the national MCA, especially the Wanita members who will be embarking on a house to house visit soon,” he said.
Toh said he has received feedback that some Chinese voters, who make up 11.1% of the electorate in the constituency, were angry because of racist remarks made by some leaders of component parties.
He noted that local issues like the controversy surrounding the Monsoon Cup sailing competition will not influence the voters much as they are slowly beginning to understand the economic benefits of the event.
During the meeting, the new office bearers of the state MCA were announced.
Toh, who was the former State MCA secretary, was elevated to become the new chairman, taking over from Senator Datuk Wong Foon Meng who had been appointed MCA secretary-general.
He named Ong Doon Hong as his deputy and four vice-presidents – Tor Pee Ping, Kemaman MCA division chairman Chong Ngam, Dungun division chairman Tham Boon Hiap and Kong Yong Thing.
Chin Wai San was elected as secretary.
Tan Sri Lau Yin Pin will act as the adviser to the state MCA.

A sign of sincere cooperation shown by component’s party leaders. Hope that everybody have decided to forget the small grudge which had caused sour terms between the two eminent parties in BN lately. We can expect this surely would be the triggering point for relationship refreshment after the slight dispute and misunderstanding. Also hope no more heroic remarks from either side or any other component parties on sensitive issues and start to learn how to let-go some unhealthy dissatisfaction instead move onward striving for betterment.
