The Indian Newspaper Society (INS) has just completed the election process for its new council for 2005-06. Malayala Manorama’s Jacob Mathew is the new President. He takes over from Pradeep Guha.

The election process for the 35-member committee culminated in Bangalore on September 29. In a significant development, two candidates – Somesh Sharma and Jyoti Prakash Khan – eligible for election, withdrew. The Sentinel’s Indira Rajkhowa contested but was not elected. As many as 30 members withdrew from the nomination process, including Outlook’s Maheshwar Peri.

Confirming the developments, INS Secretary General, Deepak Raja, said, “The process was smooth and peaceful. There are new faces who have been elected and that is encouraging. New blood in an organisation is the signature of growth.”

Among the new entrants in the committee this year are Sarvinder Kaur of the Daily Ajit, Jalandhar, and Ravinder Kumar of The Statesman, who takes the place of C R Irani, who has passed away. Devendra Darda is also in the INS committee this year, along with his father, Shri Vijay Darda (Member of Parliament).

As is known, in addition to the Executive Committee members, there are 10 immediate past presidents and five co-opted members who operate with the committee.
