New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA has said that seat-swap­ping among Barisan Na­sional (BN) com­po­nent par­ties is a pos­si­bil­ity in the com­ing 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion (GE14).

Its pres­i­dent, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, said yes­ter­day there were dis­cus­sions on switch­ing of seats.

“We are ready to take on the up­com­ing gen­eral elec­tion and have started prepa­ra­tions.

“(But) we will not be able to dis­close any­thing yet (on the swap­ping of seats), as dis­cus­sions are run­ning at BN level.

“Until the elec­tion date is an­nounced, or be­fore we reach a con­sen­sus be­tween com­po­nent par­ties, we will not an­nounce the changes in seats.”

Liow, who is also Ben­tong mem­ber of par­lia­ment, added that the party was open to dis­cus­sion, es­pe­cially on mat­ters re­lat­ing to seat al­lo­ca­tion.

“Whether it is swap­ping, adding, re­duc­ing or any gen­eral elec­tion-re­lated matter, we are ready to dis­cuss it with com­po­nent par­ties.”
