Palanivel: MIC will field women candidates in next polls
KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel has given an assurance that the party would also select women as candidates in the coming general election (GE).
He hoped Wanita MIC members would dismiss unfounded rumors that the party would not field female candidates in the GE.
"I will, of course, choose women candidates. It's only fair for us to give such opportunity to the women's wing. The selection of candidates will be a key element in re energising MIC and Barisan Nasional.
"I am not going to remove the 'roses' from the list of candidates," he said when launching Wanita MIC's election machinery at the party headquarters here Friday.
Palanivel, urged Wanita MIC members to get in touch with schools, non-governmental organisations, temples and other relevant authorities to better understand the needs of the Indian community. - Bernama
