Tunku Aziz's decision is a very strategic one. This man knows what he has to do to strengthen non-communal politics in the country. He said, "I have been targeting DAP for 20 years and they have been talking about consistency, transparency, accountability and the need to establish a non-race-based party.
"I feel much more comfortable (with DAP) and I trust the people around me. I joined DAP for what it stands for, a party that has been very consistent with its beliefs," he said in response to a question on why he did not opt for PKR.
Abdul Aziz believes that for a Malay to join a pre-dominantly Chinese party would mark the death of race-based politics in the country.
It is not too difficult to predict what will happen to his guest column in NST but I am sure Tunku will have a lot more to offer in the future. This is another feather on Lim Kit Siang's cap. Tunku is a long time friend and admirer of the DAP stalwart.
