DAP have yet to discuss whether to discipline Tunku Abdul Aziz or not.
KUALA LUMPUR: A pro-opposition blog has demanded that the DAP sack its vice chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim for his unfavourable remarks on Bersih 3.0.
The post at the Suara Pakatan Rakyat blog said the DAP should sack Tunku Abdul Aziz for opposing the party's view on Bersih.
The post read: “In the Bersih issue, Tunku Abdul Aziz is the only leader in high position in the Pakatan Rakyat parties who have opposing personal views.”
“We do not see why there should not be any action taken against him,” the post read, also stating Tunku Abdul Aziz should not suggest for violence to take place.
On Thursday lasy week, Tunku Abdul Aziz shocked Pakatan Rakyat and his party DAP for his remarks against Bersih 3.0, saying it
Datuk Ahirudin Attan of Rocky's Bru expressed surprise and asked, "How dare the old man openly oppose Bersih 3.0? Has he lost his marbles or has he gone over to the 'dark side'? How much did they pay him to label Ambiga and Samad Said irresponsible'?"
"In all fairness, I am sure Tunku Aziz made his point with the late Baharuddin in mind," Rocky said, referring to Burhanuddin Ahmad, who died after collapsing during the Bersih 2.0 rally last year.
DAP national deputy chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw yesterday said there is no discussion for any disciplinary action against the veteran politician in the party.
Dr Tan told The Mole: “We do not know yet whether there will be any disciplinary action against him (Tunku Abdul Aziz) or not.”
“There is no discussion on the issue,” he added.
Prior to that, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had publicly said that Tunku Abdul Aziz is an embarrassment to the party.
In a news report Lim also accused the only Malay leader in DAP as violating the party’s processes before the rally.
When asked about Lim’s statement, Dr Tan said: “I think it is better for you to ask him.”
Dr Tan who is the MP for Kepong said he personally feels the issue is over and that the DAP had more serious issues to address such as the police’s action in Bersih 3.0 last Saturday.
Following the riot that happened on Saturday, Tunku Abdul Aziz who is also a senator, wa quoted by Utusan Malaysia as saying that the Malaysian government should make claims from the Bersih organiser for the damages caused in the protest.
Meanwhile, Tunku Abdul Aziz when contacted said he stood by what he had said about the rally but refused to comment further on it.
“I really have no more comments for now as I do not want to complicate the situation,” he said.
