Mohanlal to be new AMMA president; Edavela Babu to replace Mammootty
Kochi: A new leadership is coming to power in AMMA (Association of Malayalam Movie Artists) skipping the election process. The new committee includes Mohanlal as president and Edavela Babu as secretary.
Mohanlal replaces Innocent who has been acting as the president of the association for the past 18 years. Edavela Babu replaces Mammootty as secretary. The association is trying to introduce the new leadership by completely avoiding an election.

K. B. Ganesh Kumar and Mukesh are the new vice presidents. Siddique will be the new joint secretary and Jagadish is the new treasurer.
Indrans, Sudheer Karamana, Jayasurya, Baburaj, Asif Ali, Tini Tom, Aju Varghese, Honey Rose, Shweta Menon, Rachana Narayanankutty and Muthumani are submitted nominations to the executive committee.
With the final phase of the election process to be completed on June 14, the election of these members will be declared officially. The new office-bearers will take charge in the general body meeting of AMMA in Kochi on June 24.
