Pick Performance-based Leaders, MIC Delegates Told

Contributed by Anonymous on Saturday, July 18 @ 11:04:36 CDT

GENTING HIGHLANDS, July 18 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu has urged party members to pick leaders who are performance-based and accepted by the people ahead of the Sept 12 party polls.

He said for the MIC to survive in the changing political scenario, the party must have leaders with such qualities to win over the Indians' support, "not just the support of party members but the Indians in general".

"The MIC has existed for more than 63 years and only leaders who can bring reforms and renewal can keep the party relevant," he said when opening the 63rd Pahang MIC delegates convention at Genting Awana Resort here Saturday.

He said the MIC which fared badly in the 2008 general election, needed "energetic leaders" who would be able to woo the Indian community and deliver their votes to Barisan Nasional in the next general election.

"We must be able to show that we are a reliable partner to the Barisan Nasional by bringing in the votes," he said.

Samy Vellu named in*****bent MIC deputy president Datuk G.Palanivel as his choice for the party's number two post against two other aspirants, former party deputy president Datuk S.Subramaniam and vice-president Datuk S.Sothinathan.

For the three vice-president post, he picked Human Resources Minister, Datuk Dr. S.Subramaniam; Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk S.K.Devamany; and Federal Territories Deputy Minister Datuk M.Saravanan.

Following his announcement on his preferred list of candidates two days ago, a former MIC leader had suggested yesterday that Dr. Subramaniam, should also vie for the post of deputy president.

Former Klang MIC division chairman Alex Thiagarajan was quoted as saying that Dr. Subramaniam, who is also the party secretary-general and the only Indian Cabinet minister, had been carrying out his duties effectively and efficiently for the past 15 months and was "the most capable person to lead the party".

The candidate who wins the deputy president post would eventually take over the party from Samy Vellu who had announced that he would hand over the presidency before his eleventh three-year term expires in 2012.
