KLANG: The hotly contested three vice president posts in the MIC have gone to Datuk T. Mohan (pic), Datuk M. Asojan and Datuk T. Murugiah.
Mohan and Murugiah were incumbents whilst Asojan, the party's secretary-general, grabbed the position from former Cameron Highlands MP Datuk C. Sivarraajh.
The other contestants in the six-cornered fight were party information chief Datuk V. Gunalan and executive secretary AK Ramalingam.
When contacted Mohan, who confirmed the results, said he was happy with the outcome as he had garnered about 11,000 votes which were more than what he had won in the previous party polls.
"It reflects the trust and confidence the division chiefs have on me," said Mohan, adding the other two vice presidents had also done well.
According to him, this year's party polls were 'smooth and clean' without any mishaps.
"There were no protests against any of the contestants or poison pen letters and emails," said Mohan, adding that this had happened in the past.
The party's 145 divisions had voted for the three vice presidents and 21 central working committee (CWC) members.
The contest also saw 48 people battling for the CWC positions.
It was yet to be known who were the candidates that made the 21 CWC team from the 48 contestants.
