SEREMBAN: MIC has no qualms swapping seats with other Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties as long as the move can assure BNâs victory.
State MIC chairman Datuk L Manickam said he had heard that there was a possibility of seat swapping between MIC and UMNO involving the Port Dickson parliamentary seat and the party would adhere to any decision made by the party leadership.
âWhatever is best for BN, must be done.
âThis is not about the candidate, itâs about the party. We just need to do our work as usual and fulfill our responsibility towards the people until the nomination day comes,â he said.
Manickam said all MIC members must accept any decision made by the party leadership with an open heart.
âIf they are disappointed, it wonât last long. Not being nominated doesnât mean itâs the end of the world,â he said.
Man ickam also expressed his intention to contest in the Jeram Padang state seat, despite rumours that another MIC member was also planning to contest there as an Independent candidate.
Meanwhile Menteri Besar and state BN chairman, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said any decision related to seat swapping in the state would be made by the partyâs leadership.
âI donât have any further information about that. But I believe, if the partyâs leadership has decided to do so, they must have seen it from a bigger perspective.
âWe canât be stuck with the old formula. My advice is, if thereâs indeed a seat swap in the state, I hope all party members can accept the decision as our focus is to ensure the victory of the party,â he said.62 readsSource: Google News
