Senator Jaspal Singh and former senator Daljit Singh came out victorious in the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) party elections today.
Jaspal, a former treasurer of the party dominated by Tamils, emerged as one of the three vice presidents.
A one-term former senator Daljit won a spot in the party’s central working committee (CWC) in another keenly contested election.
“This gives me a better platform to serve the Indian community,” Daljit tells Asia Samachar when contacted after the results were announced in Kuala Lumpur today (6 Nov 2015).
Jaspal, an entrepreneur who once controlled a technology company and now owns restaurants, was reappointed as a second three-year term senatorship in November 2014.
Daljit is a director at the Malaysian Tourism Promotion Board and is the Indian affairs advisor to Minister of Tourism and Culture. He was a senator between 2008 and 2011.
The results were announced by MIC president Dr S Subramaniam during the 67th MIC annual general meeting in Kuala Lumpur.
