KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Associated Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MAICCI) will hold its annual delegates conference as scheduled on June 27, its president Datuk K.K. Eswaran said.
He said that since it was an election year, nominations for the various posts had been fixed for June 18.
Eswaran said they had the right to hold the conference as they were endorsed as the legitimate office bearers by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).
“We are not concerned about others claiming the right to be the president. We have the quorum of seven states and we will carry on with our programmes,” he said, referring to a rival group that had sought an injunction to declare former president Datuk V.K.K. Teagarajan as the president.
The group had also sought a declaration that their special delegates conference held on Jan 15 was conducted in accordance with the MAICCI constitution.
A writ for the order against Eswaran and ROS was filed in the High Court on June 4. The hearing is fixed for June 16.
Eswaran said there was no provision in the constitution for the formation of an interim committee to have a delegates’ conference.
“It is totally wrong. We are ready to face them in the court,” he said.
