Abstract

This research intends to study about the perspective of MIC (Malaysian Indian Congress) members towards the party and ‘new politics’. The perspectives were examined through the services that provided by MIC. Therefore, this research aimed to inspect why MIC was defeated in the 12th General Election via members perspective towards the services that provided by party, what is MIC doing to win the 13th General Election in term of services and rebranding as well as examine the ‘new politics’ among Indian community as a temporary swing or permanent. This research is participated by 426 respondents from P062 Sungai Siput (U), P094 Hulu Selangor and P109 Kapar area. Through ‘purposive sampling’ data are collected with the distribution of questionnaires. Data analyses are done through SPSS programme and the research result is presented in term of a statistical descriptive pattern which is frequency distribution, percentage and mean score. The finding of this research indicates that the respondents are not much satisfied with the services that provided by MIC in before and after 12th General Election. It also directs that the lack of continuity in the rebranding and inefficiency of CWC (Central Working Committee) reduces the support of Indian community towards MIC. Therefore, the ‘new politics’ among Indian community is not a temporary swing and it is essential for MIC to gain back their support to make the party relevant.
