KUALA LUMPUR, March 13 ― PKR vice-president and Kuala Langat MP Datuk Dr Xavier Jayakumar today announced he is resigning as vice-president and member of PKR.
He said he is quitting the Opposition party PKR due to extreme frustration over a series of events which happened over the past year.
“The people want stability and to restart our ailing economic sectors. Towards this, we need to work together, not against one another.
“Therefore, I announce my immediate resignation as vice-president and member of PKR. I will continue to serve my constituency and support the government as an independent member of Parliament and I am confident that I will fulfil my election promises to the people of Kuala Langat,” Dr Xavier said.
He added that he will support the ruling government Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic and rebuild Malaysia’s battered economy.
“It will take at least 18 months just to complete the vaccination programme and more than two years for the economy to fully recover. This needs bipartisan support, to make sure the efforts of the government are fulfilled,” Dr Xavier said.
