MCA extends our heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Tun Omar Ong Yoke Lin, one of the founding members of MCA who passed away in the morning of 1 July 2010 at the age of 93.

Tun Ong was one of the founding member of MCA and one of the key figures involved in the formation of the Umno-MCA alliance. The late Ong was also part of a delegation headed by Tunku Abdul Rahman to negotiate the country's independence in London in 1957.

Tun Ong was one of those instrumental in the formation of the Alliance, which took all but one seat in the first Legislative Assembly elections of 1955, and he was a member of the multi-party team that negotiated independence from Britain. Tun Omar Ong Yoke Lin was a taskmaster, but those who know him, and have worked with him, remember him as a warm and caring friend with a puckish sense of humour.

His greatest involvement had brought our country towards independence and citizenship among Chinese community. His contribution to MCA, country as well as Chinese community deserved for highest appreciation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the dearly departed at his family during this difficult moment.
