The organisational elections of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) will be held within this year as against the party's earlier decision to hold these from January next year.
After a meeting of the party's central working committee (CWC) at the party headquarters in Kuala Lumpur Tuesday, MIC president G. Palanivel announced that the decision to hold the party elections this year has been taken following advice from Malaysia's Registrar of Societies (RoS), media reports said.
The party was supposed to hold elections last year but postponed it because of the general elections in Malaysia held May 5 this year.
After the elections, it was decided that the party would hold its organisational elections in 2014.
Tuesday's meeting was convened following reports that the party might face de-registration as one party branch chairman had complained to the RoS about the organisational elections being planned for 2014.
Palanivel told the media Tuesday that nominations for the president's post will be filed Sep 1 and any contest will be held Sep 22.
The president will be elected by 3,900 branch chairmen of the party.
Branch elections will be held July 12-Aug 4 and divisional elections from September to October. ...
