HS: Palanivel vs a younger MIC person
WHO among the MIC leaders will be picked to contest the Hulu Selangor parliamentary seat? After BN Chairman and PM Najib announced that the seat will go to the MIC, talk is now focused on who the candidate will be. Can it be G Palanivel, one time journalist with Bernama and who lost in the same contest by 198 votes in 2008? He is now MIC dep president. If Palanivel loses, will he still succeed MIC Bossman Samy Vellu as president. Will the MIC pick a guy rejected at the parliamentary level to head the party? Even if he is picked, will he be respected by fellow BN components? The BN in Hulu Selangor will now defend the selection of whoever the MIC candidate will be fielded. The choice of candidate will determine how easy or difficult it is to defend.
