Closed-door Meeting Without The Media Better, Says Fong

PENANG, Oct 28 (bernama) -- Any discussion between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should be held behind closed door and not through the media, said MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn.

This was to avoid more complications and problems that could crop up, said Dr Fong, who is also the Human Resource Minister.

"This (closed-door meeting) is to enable matters arising to be discussed in greater detail, so that clearer explanation can be made to the satisfaction of everyone," he said at a media conference after the Penang Buildex 2006 dinner, here Saturday night.

He said this when commenting on the continued open criticism against Abdullah's leadership by Dr Mahathir although both the Prime Minister and his predecessor had met at Seri Perdana, Putrajaya, on Sunday.

Fong said the MCA had full confidence in the spirit of consensus practised by the Barisan Nasional leadership currently.
