KUALA LUMPUR - The MIC has approved 49 amendments to the party's constitution in strengthening and restoring the glory of the 71-year-old party, said Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.

The MIC president said among the amendments was Article 58.8 that every leader who wanted to contest the MIC president's post needed to get nominations from 250 branch heads as compared to 50 nominations previously.

Another amendment prescribes the president can only lead the party for three terms as compared to the current no-term limit.

"All the 4,000 MIC members including the 1,500 delegates have unanimously agreed to the amendments before they are submitted to the Registrar of Societies (RoS) for approval. Currently, the MIC needs to make some corrections before sending it to the RoS.

"The amendments approved yesterday will be adopted for next year's party elections which are expected to be held after the 14th General Election," he said at a press conference after the opening of the 71st MIC General Assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre here today.
