Samy Vellu Issues List Of 'Presidents's Men' For Party Polls

KUALA LUMPUR, May 29 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has come out with a full list of "preferred" candidates who include 23 members of the Central Working Committee (CWC) for the party polls on June 24.

"Most of the in*****bents have been retained as they have shown their ability to work as a team," he told Bernama when contacted Monday.

Samy Vellu last week said that he would not issue a list of "preferred" CWC candidates as there were many MIC leaders who wanted to be in the list.

The MIC president had issued a full list of candidates he would support in every MIC election. These chosen leaders were often dubbed the "president's men".

It is learnt that several in*****bent CWC members met Samy Vellu after he announced that he would not issue an official CWC list. They apparently told him that a list would be better to let the 1,348 delegates to the party assembly know who the president favoured. Nomination for the election is on June 4.

"The CWC list consists of a mix of state executive councillors, Members of Parliament and Senators. There will be minimal changes...majority of the state assemblymen are on the list," he added.

The MIC national election this time will see contest for the deputy president, three vice president and 23 CWC positions. The party constitution empowers the president to appoint nine CWC members.

Samy Vellu won the party presidency uncontested for a record 10th term in March.

He is backing vice president Datuk G. Palanivel to take on in*****bent deputy president Datuk S. Subramanian.

Samy Vellu also announced his support for in*****bent vice presidents Datuk S. Veerasingam and Tan Sri K.S. Nijhar and secretary-general Datuk S. Sothinathan for the three vice president posts.

Party sources revealed that 21 out of the 23 in*****bent CWC members are on the president's list. M. Seelathevan and S.P. Manivasagam, both from Selangor, are excluded and replaced by Kamala Ganapathy, the Sri Andalas (Klang) state assemblywoman, and Dr S. Subramaniam, the Housing and Local Government Ministry's Parliamentary Secretary.

Subramaniam, the Segamat MP, is Melaka MIC deputy chief.

It is also learnt that the president would appoint Manivasagam to the CWC after the party election.

MIC sources revealed that the president had issued termination letters to at least two appointed CWC members so far.

The two are Datuk V. Govindaraju of Selangor and Tan Sri G. Pasamanickam of Johor. The two veteran MIC leaders are said to be aligned to the MIC deputy president.
