Mohanlal Elected Unopposed As President Of Actors Body AMMA For Third Term
Superstar Mohanlal has been elected unopposed as the President of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) for a second term of three years. His election came after the last date of withdrawal of nominations ended Tuesday. Actor Unni Mukundan too was elected unopposed as the Treasurer of the AMMA.

An Unopposed Victory

Even though these two posts have been occupied unopposed, elections will still be conducted for the posts of General Secretary, two Vice President positions, and the Joint Secretary.
As per sources, Kukku Parameswaran, Anoop Chandran and Jayan Cherthala were ready to contest against Mohanlal, but this was withdrawn at the last moment, enabling Mohanlal to get elected unopposed.
The elections will be held alongside the Annual General Body Meeting to be held in Kochi on June 30.

Other Contestants In The Fray

Edavela Babu, who had been the General Secretary of the AMMA for a while, opted out this time, and popular character actor Siddique sought to succeed him, but actors Kuku Paramaseshweran and Unni Shivapal also entered the fray. For the two Vice President's posts, there are three candidates - veteran actor Jagdish, Manju Pillai, and Jayan Cherthala. Likewise, Baburaj and Anoop Chandran are in the race for the Joint Secretary's post.
