Saifuddin urged BN, PR leaders to meet and discuss
KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Supreme Council Member Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah urged leaders of Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to hold a meeting in order to discuss key issues that concern both parties' common interests.

One of the issues is the constituency boundaries which cannot be done in last parliament session because there was no two-third majorities in Dewan Rakyat.

According to Saifuddin, 13th general election (GE13) and past election proved that "people say goodbye to two-third."

"It's better if both sides discuss and find the solution. Otherwise, we will face unbalanced voters in GE14," said Saifuddin during an interview in 'Agenda Awani' which hosted by Kamarul Bahrin Haron last night.
According to Federal Constitution, constituency boundaries need to be revised in eight to 10 years after last revision. Previous revision was believed to be held in 2003.

There is 222 parliaments and 576 states constituency. Based on Table-13 in Federal Constitution, an election constitution should have more or less the number of voters except rural constituencies which related to infrastructure problems. 
Saifuddin said several other issues should be discussed include press freedom, freedom of speech, non-partisan parliament and people progressive thinking.

"I think people are thirst to see this happen (BN and PR leaders sit together)," he added.

However he is a bit worried that idea cannot be done if political leaders only feel comfortable within their group.

Saifuddin urged that people have voiced their demands and wishes in the recent election and these demands need to be fulfilled with a new approach.
