KUALA LUMPUR - MCA will not let go of the Bandar Tun Razak seat unless there is a swap with Umno and will contest in all its traditional constituencies in Kuala Lumpur.

Party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said Federal Territory MCA would be contesting in five traditional seats in Kuala Lumpur – Cheras, Seputeh, Bukit Bintang, Wangsa Maju and Bandar Tun Razak.

He denied that MCA would let go of the Bandar Tun Razak seat to Umno.

“This is not true – unless there is a swapping of seats. So far, there is no such discussion,” he said yesterday, adding that any swapping would be done internally, within Barisan Nasional.

Liow was speaking to reporters at the Chinese New Year open house organised by the Federal Territory MCA and Bandar Tun Razak MCA in Taman Ikan Emas.

Some 3,000 people attended.

Several Umno leaders reportedly voiced intentions of their party, instead of MCA, contesting in Bandar Tun Razak.

Liow said MCA had shortlisted its Bandar Tun Razak division chief Datuk Chew Yin Keen as the candidate for the parliamentary seat.

Bandar Tun Razak was won by former PKR leader Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim in the 2013 general election, defeating Barisan candidate Tan Kok
