Samy Clears Stand With Key Leaders To Back Palanivel In Polls

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has nailed speculations he would reverse his decision of backing party vice-president Datuk G. Palanivel to contest the MIC deputy presidency in the party polls in June.

He told key party leaders at a closed-door meeting, here Tuesday that he would back Palanivel, the Women, Family and Community Development deputy minister, to take on in*****bent MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam in the election.

The 62-year-old Subramaniam, who has been Samy Vellu's deputy since 1980, was not invited to the meeting, an MIC national leader who attended the meeting, told Bernama.

Speculations were rife in the party that Samy Vellu might reverse his stand on Palanivel after the MIC supremo was captured on media lenses serving coffee to his long-time deputy at the Thaipusam celebrations in Batu Caves on Feb 11.

Late last year, Samy Vellu, who is also Works Minister, openly announced he would prefer Palanivel to be his deputy after the party elections.

Palanivel, a journalist-turned-politician, was Samy Vellu's former press secretary. He is being groomed to lead the party after Samy Vellu's retirement.

In today's meeting, the president also announced he would back in*****bent vice-president Datuk S. Veerasingam and secretary-general Datuk S. Sothinathan for two of the three vice-president's posts.

"He (Samy Vellu) did not say who the third vice-president will be...it can go to just anyone," said the leader, who declined to elaborate.

The in*****bents are Palanivel, Veerasingam and Tan Sri K. S. Nijhar.

Nijhar, the Subang Member of Parliament, is expected to make way for a new face.

Monday, Tenggaroh state assemblyman Datuk S. Krishnasamy announced he would go for the vice-presidency. Another likely contender for the post is Kuala Lumpur MIC chief Datuk V.K.K. Teagarajan. He, however, has yet to announce his candidacy.

Samy Vellu is expected to release the "president's men line-up" for the June polls following the norms of previous party elections after the divisional elections end next month.
