MCA is totally fucked up. Can they gain more support? They are ball-less. Unlike Chua Soi Lek, he has the balls to fuck and also to admit. The rest of the MCA members are total fucked up.

MCA Youth sets 20,000 members target
KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth aims to recruit at least 20,000 members below 35 years old over the next two years.
This is to ensure there are sufficient members to maintain the existing branches and divisions in every state following the wing’s decision to lower the age limit of Youth members from 45 to 40 in five years.
The decision is in keeping with a resolution adopted at the party’s annual general assembly last October.
“Every year, we lose 20,000 to 30,000 members when they turn 45,” Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong told a press conference after chairing the central Youth committee meeting yesterday.
“The branches and divisions have to recruit that many members, otherwise they risk being phased out. This is the consequence,” he explained.
“We need to recruit 21,000 new members because, based on calculations, we need that number to maintain our branches and divisions,” he said.
“Our target is those aged 35 years and below, because in five years they will still be 40 or below.”
Dr Wee, who is also Malacca MCA chief, said that besides recruiting more members, the wing would also carry out a series of programmes nationwide to strengthen the political knowledge of its new and existing members.
“Our philosophies and concepts must be made clear to our members, including our relationships with other political parties and our struggle in today’s economic and political scenario,” he said.
“We need to do this so that they will remain with us and contribute meaningfully to the party.” When asked about the party’s approach to online recruitment, similar to what Umno and MIC launched recently, Dr Wee said a report on its implementation in MCA would be tabled at the parent body’s central committee meeting “as soon as possible”.
On the Kuala Terengganu by-election, Dr Wee said a post-mortem on the results found that the number of Chinese votes for Barisan Nasional had increased by 1% since the general election last March.
“That’s a good sign. But we can’t be complacent. We must still work hard to identify and resolve issues for the community,” he said.
