Political career

Tan joined MCA in 1986.

Tan was also the Director of the Port Klang Authority from 1998 to 2001, before she was appointed as the Parliamentary secretary of Ministry of International Trade and Industry in 2004.[3][4]

Anyhow, Tan was censured on violating the party disciplines, and her party membership had been suspended for 6 months in 2005. Furthermore, she was dropped as the candidate of 2008 general election, where MCA and BN suffered a great loss in Selangor later.[5] Tan quit herself from MCA on 17 July 2008 and joined PKR with more than thousand of followers.[6]

During the 2013 general election, Tan contested as PKR candidate for the parliamentary seat of Tanjong Malim in Perak, against MCA's Ong Ka Chuan, the Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry, but she lost by 4,328 votes.[7][8]

In 2018 general election, Tan moved to Wangsa Maju in Kuala Lumpur, and defeated Yew Teong Look, the candidate of MCA, with 24,238 votes majority.[9]
