KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC Wanita and Youth chiefs were returned unopposed after nominations for the two wings were closed at the party headquarters here yesterday. 

President Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu announced that only Jaya Partiban and S.A. Vigneswaran were nominated for the two top posts respectively. 

This is the first time the two wings are holding elections for the various posts in the party's history. Previously, the president appointed the Wanita and Youth chiefs, who then in turn appointed their respective committees. 

There was no contest for the Wanita wing as Kota Raja state assemblyman Kamala Ganapathy was returned unopposed as deputy chief and there were only 12 nominations for the 12 national council posts. 

Kamala and national information chief Komala Krishnamoorthy, who is also Kapar MP, were the only nominees for the two central working committee (CWC) posts.  

In the Youth wing, Johor chief Ramesh Subramaniam and Kuala Selangor division deputy chief A. Gunanathan will fight it out for the deputy chief’s post. 

Five others - Gunanathan, Pahang chief M.P. Nathan, Serdang division chief T. Mohan, Kuala Selangor division chief L. Sivasubramaniam, and Perak chief K. Ravi - are contesting the two CWC posts, while there are 17 candidates for the 12 national council posts. 

The elections will be held at the MIC Youth assembly on May 4. 

Samy Vellu advised the Youth leaders to refrain from conducting smear campaigns.
