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 Hocks statement in a Chinese daily yesterday that negotiations between both parties would be resumed, Law said: We must stop finding faults in each other.
