Must the parties go along with the Mediator of consumption’s proposal?

No.  The aim is clearly to reach an amicable solution which is advantageous to all the parties.  However, if the parties do not reach an amicable solution, the Mediator of consumption may suggest a solution to them.  The parties are then given a reasonable period to examine the proposal and to inform the Mediator of consumption whether they accept it or reject it.
