The seat negotiations never happened the way Terence has said. PSM did not set any condition for our support for Pakatan. We in fact said that if Pakatan stands in the four seats we are contesting then we will still support Pakatan in all the other seats Pakatan is contesting in the country. We never at any time threatened Pakatan though many felt PSM was bullied by Pakatan.
S ARUTCHELVAN, Malaysiakini
Let me comment on the article 'Best for PSM to go it alone' on June 11 in Malaysiakini written by the predictable Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) apologist Terence Netto.
Nevertheless we agreed to stand in all seats under the Pakatan parties' logos after our discussion with opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim in April this year.
Who violated the terms? In both these seats, PKR has never stood before using their own candidates. In Semenyih, because PKR leaders could not convince PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, some of their leaders agreed that we stand under PSM.
I feel this is the true reason and every other argument such as the logo, socialism, etc, were not the actual issues.
It amuses me that such a small, insignificant, mosquito party like PSM seems to be bothering Terence "so much" that he must write something about us and it takes such a long time for an established party to reject the PSM application.
We intend to work harder and we thank the many who support us and keep our struggle going.
