In the afternoon, letters of appointment will be presented to the party’s supreme council members, divisional heads, liaison and bureau chiefs. Meanwhile, Dahil said at the party’s recent meet-the-leaders session at Kampung Taka-Taka in Pitas, Berman had stated that the party is ready to contest in all the 60 State seats in the coming election. The decision was welcomed and fully supported by party members, said Dahil. Referring to the recent statement by the Pasok president that the opposition parties had a meeting to discuss the allocation of seats, Dahil said although Berman did attend it, there was no decision yet on the seat allocation among the opposition parties.
