PSM to continue its bid to join Pakatan

(The Star) – Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) will continue with its bid to formally join Pakatan Rakyat.

PSM secretary-general S. Arutchelvan said the party still had confidence in Pakatan due to the coalitin’s Buku Jingga policy.

“And we have been working with Pakatan Rakyat for a few years,” he said.

PSM had sent a written request to join Pakatan last September but the application has yet to be processed. PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar had said that PSM’s application would be discussed after the Chinese New Year.

The Lembah Pantai MP was reported to have said that PSM’s application to join Pakatan was not a small matter as it involved other issues including seat allocation and choice of flag.
