Sacked Ho Yip Kap accepted back in MCA  


KUANTAN: Ho Yip Kap, the independent candidate who won the Tanah Rata state seat in Cameron Highlands in last Saturday’s general election, has rejoined MCA.


Pahang MCA chief Datuk Hoh Khai Mun said the state party had decided to accept Ho back into the party fold.


“However, the final decision will be made at the central committee meeting on Saturday,” he told reporters after chairing a special meeting to discuss Ho’s return to MCA.


Hoh said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, who is also Pahang BN chief, has been informed of the development and he had given his blessing.


Ho, 56, an MCA life member, was sacked for contesting the Tanah Rata seat as an independent.


In a three-cornered fight, the former school principal polled 3,926 votes to beat BN candidate Chai Kok Lim, who received 3,351 votes, and DAP contestant, Go Mong Nging, who garnered 2,043 votes.
