SEREMBAN: The DAP once tried to entice a son of the current Negri Sembilan ruler to contest in the general election, offering him the Mentri Besar post as the “prize”, former party vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim claimed.
He alleged that state opposition leader Anthony Loke had spoken to him on the matter twice before he quit the party in May last year.
“Loke came up to me and asked me to approach Tunku Zain Al-'Abidin, a bright and well-spoken person, as I was from the royal family myself.
“He asked me to organise a dinner at my home and to talk to Tunku Zain but the learned prince declined the offer,” Tunku Aziz claimed at a ceramah here.
Tunku Aziz said Loke then asked him to speak to the prince for a second time to ask if he was keen to contest a parliamentary seat.
However, Tunku Aziz said he did not speak to the prince on the matter again.
When contacted later, Loke said “the matter was discussed in private and should have remained in private”.
