MIC President Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam said that a nationwide tour will be underway to explain to party members on the need to realign themselves in line with the role of Barisan Nasional (BN) as the current opposition coalition.

Adding that the changes were important in lieu of the political landscape, Dr Subramaniam said that the move was also important in ensuring that the party continues to be relevant and accepted by the Indian community.

“MIC is facing a massive political challenge that demands changes in order to enable us to continue to be accepted.”

He had also announced that he would not contest and defend his president’s post in the MIC polls slated to be held in October.

The decision comes following the BN component party’s defeat in the 14th General Election, which saw the party winning just two out of nine parliamentary seats it contested.
