PETALING JAYA: MCA has lost confidence in Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's leadership, saying he should step down from his post as Barisan Nasional chairman, says Datuk Chong Sin Woon.

"Ahmad Zahid should resign gracefully so that a new leader can take over and set a new direction for the coalition.

"At the same time, MCA is of the opinion that the acting Barisan chairman should call for a supreme council meeting immediately," the party secretary-general said.

According to Chong, MCA was shocked that the Barisan supreme council meeting scheduled for Sunday (Nov 20) night was postponed by Ahmad Zahid.

"At a time when there is political instability and uncertainty after GE15, there is a pressing need for a supreme council meeting to discuss the current political situation and arrive at a Barisan decision as a bloc.

"MCA is taking a stern stance that no party can represent Barisan to negotiate with any political parties without obtaining a mandate from the Barisan supreme council," said Chong in a statement.

Calls for Ahmad Zahid to resign have grown louder following Barisan's disastrous outing in GE15, which saw the coalition winning only 30 seats.
