Parti Sosialis Malaysia's (PSM) white fist emblem may not suitable if intended for use during the opposition election campaign, says Pakatan Rakyat supremo Anwar Ibrahim.

"I went to Sungai Siput last month and I see there is very confused sentiments with regard to that (PSM logo), to accept the new symbol that is perceived to be macam-macam (all sorts of things).

"You know that with the current propaganda, (it is thought to be related to) communist-lah, (Che) Guevara-lah, Mao Zedong-lah.

"So I ask that this matter be discussed with PSM once more so that a good solution is found," he said during a question and answer session in Shah Alam last night.

The opposition leader was responding to a Tamil newspaper editor's query over whether Pakatan will accept PSM as the fourth partner in the coalition.

Update: In a response today, to Anwar's claim that the PSM logo may confuse people, Arutcheval said people should not undermine the work PSM has done and the popularity of the white-fist in areas PSM contests.

He said he doesn't see folks questioning if PSM is communist or not, and that they only want to know if you are with BN, so they can vote for anyone else.
