Dear Member of Parliament for Bayan Baru, Zahrain Mohd Hashim:

On March 8 2008, we voted for you as our MP representing Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) for the parliamentary seat of Bayan Baru in Penang.

You represented PKR and stood under PKR ticket at that time.

On Feb 12, you announced your resignation from PKR and declared that you are now an independent MP.

As such, you have given up the mandate to represent us as we voted for you under the PKR ticket.

As voters who voted you in, we urge that you resign from your Bayan Baru seat and seek a fresh mandate to represent us as an independent MP.

We also like to remind you that we, the taxpayers, pay for your MP’s allowances and perks.

Since you no longer represent us, we demand your resignation with immediate effect.

from SH Tan

supported by Lucia Lai CY, resident of bayan baru, penang.
