PSM compromises on use of Pakatan logos but...

Press Clipping

In the spirit of pooling efforts to kick the BN out of Putrajaya, Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) has announced a compromise - it will field its candidates under the logo of any Pakatan Rakyat party.

Saying this at a press conference this morning, PSM secretary-general S Arutchelvan also said the party will contest the four seats it had challenged in 2008.

Should Pakatan refuse to make way in these seats, however, PSM will revert to its decision to field candidates under its own banner, he said.

The seats are Semenyih, Kota Damansara. Sungei Siput and Jelepang.

Arutchelvan said the decisions were reached at an emergency meeting of the party’s National Committee last night.

“We took into consideration the general mood of the rakyat who do not want three-corner fights in this election,” he said.

Yesterday, PSM had said it will discuss running for Cameron Highlands and 10 other seats where Pakatan members have requested to contest under the PSM banner.
