KUALA LUMPUR, April 8 — As expected, Wanita MCA chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun has resigned from her party posts.
The decision was announced after she chaired her last central committee meeting for the wing at Wisma MCA here this afternoon. A teary-eyed Chew also confirmed that her decision was inclusive of her government posts, and added that she would resign as a Senator and as the Deputy Minister of the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry.
Chew had earlier pledged she would resign from her posts if Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek were to win the party presidency.
In the March 28 party polls, Chua cruised to a win, beating incumbent president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and former president Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting.
