MIC Elections 2009: MIC Nomination On Aug 22, Election On Sept 12

Contributed by Anonymous on Wednesday, August 05 @ 03:45:20 CDT

PUTRAJAYA, Aug 5 (Bernama) -- The MIC election steering committee has fixed Aug 22 for nomination and Sept 12 as polling date for the party's election.

In making the announcement, committee chairman Datuk K. Vijayanathan said the three-week campaigning period was to enable candidates vying for posts, a longer period to canvass for votes.

The MIC national election would pick a deputy president, three vice-presidents and 23 central working committee (CWC) members. The presidential election held in March this year, saw party chief Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu returned unopposed to retain the post for a record 11th consecutive term.

The race for the post of MIC deputy president is expected to be a close, three-cornered fight involving in*****bent Datuk G. Palanivel, former MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam and MIC vice-president Datuk S. Sothinathan.

Palanivel is Samy Vellu's favoured choice, while Subramaniam and Sothinathan have respectively announced their intention to contest the post.

For the three-seat veep race, Samy Vellu has named Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam, Federal Territories Deputy Minister Datuk M. Saravanan and Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk S. K. Devamany as his preferred choice.

The trio are expected to face a challenge from businessmen Datuk S. K. Bala of Johor, V. Ragu Moorthy and P. Subramaniam, both from Selangor. More leaders are expected to make their intention known in the near future to join in the fray.

Samy Vellu has yet to announce his preferred list of 23 CWC candidates but speculation is rife that more than 80 candidates would fight for the 23 available CWC seats.

Meanwhile, Vijayanathan also announced that the party's Youth and Wanita wings would hold their elections on Aug 16, with nomination fixed for Aug 8.

"We have to hold the election for Youth and Wanita earlier, because they would have to elect some 45 delegates from each wing to the general assembly next month.

"These 45 delegates from the Youth and Wanita wings respectively, would be able to cast their votes to pick the national leaders," he told Bernama, when contacted.

He also reminded candidates to ensure that nomination forms were properly filled to prevent its rejection at the last minute.

"We are also advising candidates to abide by party election rules and regulations to avoid getting disqualified during the campaigning period," he added.
