especially if she was so used to the power and perks which come with a position.
"MCA vice-president Dr Ng Yen Yen's acceptance of her appointment as Malaysian Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) chairperson is not in defiance of the party's stand on rejecting government posts, MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek said today.
"If one was to read the ‘no government posts' resolution passed in the party's annual general meeting in totality, (it states) nobody should accept government posts normally recommended by the party," Chua said.
However, the appointment of Ng (left) to MTPB, he added, was by the prime minister or by a minister, and not by the party.
"I am not saying this is not a problem, but she can take the post," he said after chairing the MCA presidential council meeting in Kuala Lumpur.
MCA has accepted Ng's explanation, he said, adding that Ng would not be referred for disciplinary action.
Yen Yen did not defy party's stand, says Soi Lek
