Despite being the sole MCA representative in the Dewan Rakyat, Wee Ka Siong remains active in playing his role as an opposition.
Primarily, he is active in questioning the government. First, he tackled on the petrol price issue stating that the government secretly collect petrol tax by not lowering the price earlier despite the drop of petrol price.
He also attacked Pakatan Harapan for handling cash handout during the campaign for Cameron Highlands by-election. He questioned Pakatan Harapan’s action of giving reward or petrol money to volunteers, urging MACC to investigate on the matter.
Interestingly, when we look into the media share of Wee Ka Siong, most of the news reported on the MCA president is The Star. MCA is the majority shareholder for the media group. From here we can see that MCA is still using The Star as its media mouthpiece.
Despite Wee being the only MCA parliamentary member in the Dewan Rakyat and the president of one of the pioneer political party in Malaysia, he only gained attention from The Star. Other mainstream presses seem not interested on Wee’s activities.
