One does not need to be a legal expert to understand that currently from the legal perspective (High Court & ROS), Datuk Seri Dr. Subra’s team is the only legally recognised MIC entity.
To all the strong supporters of Dato Seri G. Palanivel team, please take note that about 150,000 to 200, 000 MIC members will become non-members based on an estimation of 1000 to 1500 branches not submitting nomination this weekend which will make the branches defunct legally and weaken our party considerably. Thus common sense must prevail and such a situation should be avoided by all means.
Supporters of Dato Seri G. Palanivel team have to be practical on the current situation and mitigate the risk while waiting for the Court of Appeal to decide on the appeal. All branch chairmen in support of DSGP’s team should file their nomination this weekend as a precautionary measures in order to avoid their branches from being declared as defunct or the possibility of taken over by other branch members as new chairman of the branch. In our party, everything starts from the branch thus do not lose your right to be heard in the party and do not weaken our partyfurther. All the branch chairmen need to ensure their survival in the party in order to continue our party cause to serve our community and our country.
I call upon all MIC leaders to put aside their ego/differences in their views and opinion and advice all the branch chairmen to file their branch nominations this weekend. In my opinion any leaders requesting the branch chairman not to file the nomination are doing it for their personal agenda and not from a legal perspective.
I also call upon DS Seri Subra’s team to not victimise any branch chairman or supporters of DSGP during the branch nomination process and allow them to nominate smoothly since it is the right of each and every members to support any leaders during election and soon after election everyone should close ranks and work towards the betterment of our party, our community and our country.
MY FELLOW BRANCH CHAIRMEN, PLEASE EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS AND SUBMIT YOUR BRANCH NOMINATIONS THIS WEEKEND.
