A new twist in slew of memos to MIC

MIC leaders continue to submit memorandums to the party headquarters but this time they want the election results to stay.
KUALA LUMPUR: A group of party leaders today submitted a memorandum to the MIC headquarters wanting the leadership to uphold results of the recently concluded party polls.
The delegation of 15 candidates who contested in the the polls, led by Selangor MIC treasurer N Rawisandran, handed over the memorandum urging the party to stick to the polls results and not convene a re-election.
Also present were Perak MIC chairman R Ganesan, Kedah MIC deputy chief ML Maran, Selangor MIC secretary K Parthiban and newly elected party Central Working Committee(CWC) member K Palanisamy.
“More than 60 MIC leaders have signed the memorandum urging the leadership not to conduct fresh polls,” said Rawisandran, after delivering the memo to newly appointed MIC secretary-general A Prakash Rao.
The party held it elections on Nov 30 in Malacca to pick 23 central working committee (CWC) members and three vice presidents. A total eight candidates contested the VP race while 88 aspirants fought it out for the CWC seats.
The polls was marred by various election malpractices, including a massive difference in the number of ballots cast and delegates who voted at the polls.
Todate six petitions had been submitted to the party top leadership wanting the polls declared null and void.
However, Rawisandran today insisted that the party elections were ‘fair’.
“Why are they only shouting now when all the candidates signed the election results acceptance forms. Even after the announcements of the results there were no disputes,” Rawisandran, who lost his CWC seat in the polls said.
“All candidates who lost in the election, should accept the delegates decision and move forward,” he added.
“They should stay focused to assist the community rather than making a mockery of MIC,” he added.
Rawisandran also urged the party CWC to investigate and study the reports submitted by all parties.
“We hope the CWC will find a solution to resolve this matter amicably,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prakash Rao who received the memorandum said that he would bring the matter to the CWC at its first meeting which is yet to be fixed.
“Some are supporting the election while others are opposing it. Let, the CWC decide on it,” he said.
