KUALA LUMPUR: The DAP is open to discussions with Parti Keadilan Nasional, which is interested in contesting the Segambut parliamentary seat, said Federal Territory DAP chief Dr Tan Seng Giaw.
We are a friendly party and willing to talk. It can be discussed, he said.
He said the Federal Territory DAP had already proposed the candidates for several parliamentary seats, including Segambut, but the names had yet to be announced by the national leadership.
We have recommended that incumbent MPs who have been performing their duties in their constituencies be retained, he said.
The four incumbent DAP MPs are Dr Tan (Kepong), Tan Kok Wai (Cheras), Fong Kui Lun (Bukit Bintang) and Teresa Kok (Seputeh).
Keadilan vice-president Dr Xavier Jeyakumar said recently the party would like to contest in Segambut, which had been contested by DAP all this while.
