KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Oct 2009: The MIC will implement Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for all its leaders, particularly its 3,600 branch chairpersons, by early next year to gauge their performances.
Party president Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu said today that although the KPI initiative was mooted a few years ago, it had now become necessary to ensure that the party was run more effectively.
He said in a statement here that the role of branch chairpersons was crucial as the party depended on them to implement its policies and programmes, especially at the grassroots level.
“The branch chairpersons will be evaluated every three months,” he said, adding that the KPI would also apply to the party’s top leaders and elected representatives in stages.
Samy Vellu also said the MIC would organise a leadership workshop for its nearly 150 divisional leaders on 15 Nov, followed by a series of meetings throughout the country with state and branch leaders.
He said the party had embarked on a transformation process since the last general election, starting with its rebranding exercise and followed by amendments to its constitution last month. — Bernama
