Tunku Abdul Aziz Joins DAP

Our search for talent, regardless of race or age, to join DAP has not ended in the last elections. And the latest talent to have joined DAP is certainly no small fry, but instead someone whom many would regard as a towering Malaysian, and he is none other than Tunku Abdul Aziz.

Tunku was formerly the vice-chairman of Transparency International and founder President of the Kuala Lumpur Society for Transparency and Integrity, the Malaysian Chapter of Transparency International. He was also formerly Bank Negara adviser, Group Director of Sime Darby and Director of Commonwealth Secretariat. He has even been appointed by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan as the Special Adviser on the Establishment of the Ethics Office. Read his short bio here.

Many of you would definitely have read his many columns and reports in the media as well.

At the same time, he has been co-opted into the Central Executive Committee as one of our five national vice-chairmen. I certainly think that Tunku is one big catch. ;-) The full CEC list is blogged here.
