Aitziber Laskibar – BILBO
Aralar has made a proposal to the EAJ, EA, Batasuna, Batzarre and Zutik parties that they form a coalition to stand in the June European elections. As they explained in a press conference yesterday, the proposal they sent to the parties is based on the Bergara Initiative with “further points relating to pluralism and political conduct”. Such a coalition would bear the name Euskal Herria Bai (Yes to the Basque Country) and one of its main aims would be to “encourage efforts to resolve the conflict”. They say this way “efforts would be made to promote the legalisation of all the parties and an improvement in the situation of the Basque prisoners”.
They indicated yesterday that the proposal had already been sent to the five parties in writing and that initial contacts had already begun. They plan to hold face-to-face meetings in due course and hope to receive the answer of each party “shortly”.
