I guess you know what I’m taking about 🙂

Latest news says there’s two presidents (but I think its three actually, including Thanenthiran, since ROS haven’t replied):

The crisis-ridden Malaysia Makkal Sakti Party (MMSP) is set to have two presidents by this weekend.

The 14 central committee (CC) members, who sacked the party founding-president RS as a member on Jan 17, will appoint a stand-in president during a scheduled CC meeting in Shah Alam on Sunday Feb 7.

Two names have been submitted so far by the two factions within the party.

The pro-Thanenthiran faction are championing Klang-based businessman ‘Ohms’ P Thiagarajan – a close friend of former MIC deputy president S Subramaniam.

However, the anti-Thanenthiran faction is proposing another name as well – R Kenghadaran, a former detainee under the Internal Security Act.

Rival faction leader and MMSP secretary-general R Kannan said both names would be tabled for the perusal of the 14-member CC.

Once a ‘new president’ was appointed, an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) would be held to legitimately select a new president.

Until the EGM happens, the MMSP would have two presidents next week – one heading each faction. The result will be Malaysia’s latest Indian-based party having two parties, two constitutions, two presidents and two CCs.

Thanenthiran (right), on the other hand, has already sacked the 14 ‘troublemakers’ from MMSP, staking his claim to being ultimate party president.

MMSP was launched by Barisan Nasional chairperson and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak last October as a breakaway group from Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) and intended to help Najib and his Umno-dominated federal government to regain lost Indian electoral ground.

However, as predicted by political pundits then and now, MMSP had split and was believed to be nearing a natural demise.

Both factions have now referred their cases to the Registrar of Societies (ROS) to decide the legitimate inheritor of MMSP – meaning Najib is set to have the final say on the fate of MMSP.

I lost count of who sacked who, and who appointed who. Go ahead and read the articles below, and hopefully someone can enlighten us poor folks.
