PENANG: Opposition supporters and members want a third party to help break the deadlock in seat negotiations between DAP and Parti Keadilan Nasional. 

A random survey by a Keadilan member among supporters and members showed they wanted a non-governmental organisation, such as Aliran, to be the middleman to help both parties reach an agreement.  

T.L. Law said the members and supporters wanted both parties to follow the Gerakan-MCA peace pact.  

“The people interviewed agreed to a four-point recommendation to help break the deadlock,” he said here yesterday. 

The recommendations were: 

·APPOINT a middleman to bring the two parties together; 

·BOTH parties should be willing to make sacrifices as both had the same goals; 

·THE two parties should merge as both had similar policies; and 

·THEIR candidates should stand under a common banner, not as Keadilan or DAP contestants. 

Welcoming DAP secretary-general Kerk Kim Hock’s statement in a Chinese daily yesterday that negotiations between both parties would be resumed, Law said: “We must stop finding faults in each other.”
