"They used to say they were against abuse of power. I was impressed. That was when they had no power to abuse." -- Tunku Aziz
Puchong, July 1: Tunku Abdul Aziz, the man who founded the local chapter of Transparency International and who joined the DAP in Aug 2008 before quitting unceremoniously just four years later, is leading calls by Malaysians from all walks of life for Lim Guan Eng, who is facing two counts of corruption charges, to "practise what you preach" and "take a rest".
"This is a challenge integrity that he has been throwing at his political opponents," Tunku Aziz, 82, said in a Facebook response to a posting by pro-Umno blogger, Seademon [Rashid Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang pertama?]. Reposting the article on his FB account, Seademon added a one-liner: "Lim Guan Eng should step down as Mike Tyson and Abu Hassan Omar did."
Tunku Aziz agrees with the blogger:
