Seats MIC contested in GE14 will remain with party in GE15 - Zahid

All the seats contested by MIC in the last polls will be allocated to the party in the 15th general election (GE15), said BN chairperson Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Zahid, who is Umno president, said MIC could also contest in other seats but this would be subject to negotiations with BN deputy chairperson Mohamad Hasan.

“Tan Sri Vicky (MIC president SA Vigneswaran), I promise, whatever seats contested by MIC in GE14 and past polls are confirmed to be MIC’s. If you want more, can check with Tok Mat.

“But I am confident that Tok Mat, I and the Prime Minister (Ismail Sabri Yaakob) will give the best consideration to the support of MIC because we feel that the togetherness of BN component parties has paid dividend,” he added.

Zahid said this when launching the national MIC Brigade and crime prevention exhibition in Kuala Lumpur today.

In GE14, MIC contested in nine parliamentary seats, namely Sungai Siput and Tapah in Perak; Sungai Buloh, Hulu Selangor, Kapar and Kota Raja (Selangor); Port Dickson (Negeri Sembilan); Segamat (Johor) and Cameron Highlands (Pahang).
