The organisational elections of the Malyasian Indian Congress (MIC), including the presidential election, will be held in 2014, a media report said Saturday.
The party's acting president G. Palanivel said that the presidential election will be held between January and March next year and this will be followed by elections of other top office-bearers.
Formed in 1946, the MIC is one of the oldest political parties in Malaysia.
