April 2001 ACFOA: Walsh: East Timor's Political Party Profiles: PDM  Complete text of report [150KB] added May 22
"PDM was formed on 19 October 2000 at a meeting held at the CNRT offices in Dili. A small party, PDM is a member of CNRT but is not represented in either the National Council or the CNRT Permanent Council (PC). Party officials include: Paulo Pinto, Gregorio Sebastiao Lobo, and Armindo Sanches. PDM appears to have links with the former APODETI party. ‘Maubere’ is a Tetun word popularised by Jose Ramos Horta in the 1970s as part of FRETILIN’s appeal to East Timor’s rural people or the ‘real Timorese’." Pat Walsh, Human rights consultant, Australian Council for Overseas Aid

Maret 2001 ACFOA: Partai-Partai Dan Kelompok-Kelompok Politik Di Timor Timur: PDM  Téks [150KB] added June 29
"PDM dibentuk pada tanggal 19 Oktober 2000 pada sebuah pertemuan yang diadakan pada kantor CNRT di Dili. Sebagai suatu partai yang kecil, PDM adalah anggota CNRT namun tidak memiliki perwakilan pada Badan Nasional CNRT maupun Badan Tetap CNRT. Pimpinan partai termasuk: Paulo Pinto, Gregorio Sebastiao Lobo, and Armindo Sanches. PDM ternyata memiliki hubungan dengan partai APODETI. ‘Maubere’ adalah kata dari bahasa Tetun yang dipopulerkan oleh Jose Ramos Horta pada tahun 1970-an sebagai bagian dari cara FRETILIN menarik perhatian masyarakat pedesaan Timor Timur atau ‘masyarakat Timor yang sebenarnya’." Pat Walsh, Badan Bantuan Luar Negeri Australia
