MCA and MIC leadership should declare whether they want UMNO candidate Lokman Adam to win or to lose in the Sungai Kandis by-election

The attempt by the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak to downplay MCA and MIC’s “perceived lack of involvement” in the Sungai Kandis campaign by saying that MCA and MIC needed to be given time to recover their strength following the Barisan Nasional electoral debacle on May 9, 2018 only highlights the two-faced game and political opportunism of these two parties.

I had this morning asked whether MCA and MIC support Lokman Adam’s candidature in Sungai Kandis and whether they regard Lokman Adam as the model UMNO leader they want in post-14GE.

Najib sang Loman’s praise when he campaigned for Lokman in Sungai Kandis, saying Lokman was an authoritative politician, who is also brave.

Najib said Lokman was “a vocal character who is brave in voicing out his opinions” and “the kind of people needed in the (Selangor) state assembly to ensure a mature democracy”.

Do the MCA and MIC leadership agree with Najib about Lokman.

Surely, even if the MCA and MIC needed time to recover their strength organisationally and in terms of manpower following the electoral disaster of the 14GE, this cannot be an excuse to stop them from articulating whether they want Lokman to win or to lose in the Sungai Kandis by-election!

    I do not understand something. Lokman Adam basically is Najib&Rosmah boot-licker. Najib even campaigning for him openly. Why is Najib &Rosmah and their continue control of UMNO not the main issue of the by-election?
