Mesyuarat pertubuhan hak asasi manusia ini juga memilih Dr Francis Loh sebagai setiausaha kehormat, Dr Mustafa K Anuar sebagai penolong setiausaha kehormat dan Anil Netto sebagai bendahari kehormat.

Turut dipilih sebagai ahli jawatankuasa eksekutif ialah Gan Kong Hwee, Dr Prema Devaraj, Andrew Wong, Zaharom Nain, Dr Yeoh Seng Guan, Dr Andrew Aeria, Sarajun Hoda bin Abdul Hassan, Dr Khoo Boo Teik, Dr Subramaniam Pillay, Angeline Loh dan Ong Eu Soon.

MAT ini merakamkan kebimbangan mengenai perkembangan-perkembangan terkini bersabit dengan hubungan etnik dan agama yang semakin merosot. Khususnya semangat perkauman dan agama telah disemarakkan tanpa segan silu oleh beberapa pemimpin UMNO dalam perhimpunan agung baru-baru ini. Ahli politik yang cauvinis dan tidak bertanggungjawab tiada peranan langsung dalam Malaysia yang pelbagai kaum. Aliran menekankan bahawa sesiapa yang ingin menjadi pemimpin politik haruslah terlebih dahulu menpunyai sikap saling hormat dan tolak-ansur, jujur dan bertanggungjawab, di samping berkhidmat untuk rakyat .

Also elected to the executive committee were Gan Kong Hwee, Dr Prema Devaraj, Andrew Wong, Zaharom Nain, Dr Yeoh Seng Guan, Dr Andrew Aeria,  Sarajun Hoda bin Abdul Hassan, Dr Khoo Boo Teik, Dr Subramaniam Pillay, Angeline Loh and Ong Eu Soon.

The AGM expressed serious concern over the recent deterioration in ethnic and religious relations. In particular we are disturbed that certain UMNO politicians unabashedly fanned the flames of  ethnic and religious sentiments in the recent Umno general assembly. There is no place for such irresponsible and chauvinistic politicians in multi-ethnic Malaysia. Aliran insists that any would-be politician should be tolerant and respectful of others, sincere and responsible, apart from being prepared to serve the rakyat.
