“Without any breakthrough in the negotiations, PSM proposed a committee comprising non-governmental organizations (NGO) like Bersih and Suaram and others to find a solution. The committee, with one member from each of the NGOs, will make a recommendation for discussion by the two parties,” PSM central committee member Dr Michael Jeyakumar said.
“We have agreed to abide by the decision of the committee. We are asking for the seat this time and will return it in the 14th general election. There was a proposal to give another seat to us but our policy is that a potential candidate must serve in the constituency for at least four years before the person can be nominated.
“Since we are not agreeable, let an independent and non-political entity make the decision. DAP had refused to negotiate, they say there is nothing to talk about as the seat is theirs,” he added.
