Malay Indian Congress president Vellu decides to complete his full term

By Super Admin

Kuala Lumpur, Aug 20(ANI): Malaysian Indian Congress president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has said that he will complete his full term of office and hand over the reins only in 2012.

"I have decided to complete the term, following numerous requests from branch and divisional leaders, to prevent a break-up in the party," The Star online quoted Vellu, as saying.

Vellu said he had initially planned to hand over leadership of the party to whoever was elected deputy president in the September 12 party elections.

"But the mad scramble for the deputy presidency post has caused alarm in the party," he added.

While Vellu has approved incumbent Datuk G. Palanivel for the post, former deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam and vice-president Datuk S. Sothinathan have also entered the fray. (ANI)
