Mexico's new president announced yet another commission to search for peace in the southern state of Chiapas, scene of increasing tensions between the army and Indian rebels.

President Ernesto Zedillo said the seven-member, multiparty group would seek new ways to arrive at a peaceful settlement in Chiapas, almost one year after an Indian uprising killed 145 people."We want to seek dialogue, to arrive at a dignified and just peace," Zedillo said in a national radio broadcast late Wednesday. "No one wants more violence."

The president said the commission would include members of the leftist Democratic Revolution Party, whose candidate for Chiapas governor, Amado Avendano Figueroa, has supported the Zapa-tista rebels.

Avendano claims the ruling party used fraud and intimidation to steal the Aug. 21 election from him. Official figures show Eduar-do Robledo Rincon the winner.

Avendano set up his own provisional government following Robledo's Dec. 8 inauguration, and on Wednesday repeated Zapatista warnings that a resumption of their rebellion was imminent.

In Mexico City, the National Defense Headquarters did not confirm reports of military movements, and no greater military presence was visible Wednesday.
