Tunku Aziz, a true Malaysian!
In his short text message to Bernama, he did not give any reason for the decision but it is publicly known that the row over his dejection for Bersih 3.0 rally on April 28 prompted him to leave the opposition.
Personally, I perceive it as a true gentleman's move. Besides, being the only Malay general in the Chinese-dominated circle, he probably realised how he has all the while been made as strap for the party's leadership.
He couldn't speak louder than Karpal, Kit Siang or Guan Eng. He got to spell out everything before the top leadership for any statement he wanted to make.
However, Bersih 3.0 was his wake up call. At 78, he believe in his country's stability, prosperity and peace as most important than extreme politics. He is old enough to detect the rotten agenda behind Bersih and its devastating impact on national security.
Even as a DAP leader then, the Senator was seldom heard. Despite being with the opposition, he valued national harmony and didn't believe in unseating a popular government by means of force. He loves the country just like others who objected to Bersih.
As for the DAP, it has to find a 'Malay replacement' for him to give the impression that it is a multi-racial party. But who would be the donkey this time?
Tunku Aziz's next move is still unknown. However, he is a wise man...
