Saravanan re-elected as MIC deputy president

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri M. Saravanan has successfully retained his position as the Deputy President of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) after winning the post uncontested for the 2024-2027 term during the party's recent elections.

MIC President Tan Sri S A Vigneswaran announced the outcome following the closure of nominations at 1pm on Saturday (June 22), with Saravanan emerging as the sole candidate for the position.

"Since he has received the majority support from our party, Datuk Seri M Saravanan will once again hold the post of MIC's Deputy President," he stated to the media at the MIC Headquarters on Saturday (June 22).

The nomination process for the party's highest offices, including the posts of Deputy President, three Vice-Presidents, 21 Central Working Committee (CWC) members and the State Supreme Council, took place from 10.30am to 1pm on Saturday.

In March, Vigneswaran was announced as retaining the position of MIC President unopposed during the nomination process for this office.

Four candidates are contesting the position of Vice-President, including three incumbents: Datuk T. Mohan, Datuk T. Murugiah, and Datuk M. Asojan, as well as the MIC's Education Committee Chairman, Datuk Dr R. Nelson.
