PETALING JAYA: Following his re-election as MCA president on Sunday, Wee Ka Siong must now chart a clear direction for the party in order to rebuild itself, says a political analyst.

“MCA and DAP used to contest against each other in Chinese-majority seats at general elections. In the new political landscape, what will be MCA’s direction?” said Chin Yee Mun, who heads the Tan Cheng Lock Centre for Social and Policy Studies at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman.

He said the 2022 general election has left many political parties, not just MCA, unclear about their future direction.
