Nazri denies inviting DAP to join Barisan
Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has denied a newspaper report that he invited DAP to join the Barisan Nasional and help get the Chinese support.
The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department was quoted by Sin Chew Daily that he had made such an offer to the opposition party, saying that Barisan might ask DAP to join the coalition as it was the party that could best represent the Chinese community.
Nazri, through his special officer, had asked the daily to carry a correction over the article published on Sunday.
The daily was told that the article was not true, adding that Nazri was just responding to a question on the reducing support for Barisan from the Chinese community.
The daily confirmed that Nazri did not mention about inviting DAP to join the coalition during the interview. –The Star Online
