GE13: PSM to use DAP symbol if allowed to contest Jelapang, says Dr Jeyakumar

IPOH: Parti Socialist Malaysia will compromise with DAP and use the party's logo if DAP agrees that PSM's candidate contest in the Jelapang state seat, PSM central committee member Dr Michael Jeyakumar said.

"We stand firm in wanting to contest the seat and we are ready to compromise and use the DAP or any other Pakatan Rakyat logo.

"However, they (DAP) will also need to compromise by allowing our candidate to contest," he told reporters after launching the PSM election car sticker in Sungai Siput on Thursday.

Dr Jeyakumar noted that PSM had made compromises, including not using the PSM logo.

"Currently the discussion is still ongoing and we are also ready to allow non-governmental organisations such as Aliran, Bersih and Suaram to adjudicate on the Jelapang seat allocation," he said.

Dr Jeyakumar remained cautious even in the Sungai Siput and Kota Damansara seat, which Pakatan Rakyat had allowed it to contest.

"We would not be certain until Pakatan actually presents the letter of appointment to PSM.

"If we don't receive the letter, we will still contest in those seats but under our own logo," he said.
