This is what JERIT says in response (perhaps to several querries about sponsorship from parties like PKR and PSM):
On the issue of this campaign is used by certain political parties for their interest, we would like to reiterate here that this campaign is to highlight the aspiration for the people.
In the early part of this campaign, we sent letter to all political parties, asking for endorsement for this campaign. Only Pakatan Rakyat parties, and Parti Socialist Malaysia endorsed this campaign. Many NGOs and MTUC also endorsed this campaign.
So what is the problem if the endorsing groups participate and support the campaign?
For your information, political parties as a whole cannot be members of the coalition. Nevertheless, individuals from political parties can be members of JERIT.
Some founder and active members of JERIT are also members of PSM
But all decisions of JERIT are made independently by the National Exco , National Congress and National Secretariat of JERIT.
No political parties can interfere or intervene in decision made by JERIT
