MCA drops Ng Yen Yen from Raub seat
MCA chief Datuk Seri Lam Kang Sang today confirmed that Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen has been dropped out of the candidate list for Raub. She has served three terms so far. The MCA Chief also further added that he had met with Prime Minister Najib on this matter and the former would be filling the seat with a "winnable candidate."
The other option is Bilut state assemblyman Datuk Ho Chai Mun, who is a senior Pahang state exco. He will be meeting DAP's Datuk Mohd Ariff Sabri Abdul Aziz.
Ng Yen Yen made headlines not too long ago when she was booed by the crowd in Melaka. Read FULL STORY here.
In 2011, she used the tourism ministry's RM1.8 million expenditure to develop six Facebook pages to promote Malaysian tourism.
