Hindraf leader to stay on as assemblyman in Malaysia

Petaling Jaya, Sun, 10 May 2009 ANI

Petaling Jaya, May 10 (ANI): Hindraf lawyer and Kota Alam Shah assemblyman M. Manoharan will not be stepping down from his seat as he is no longer an Internal Security Act (ISA) detainee.


He pledged to continue working for his constituents after missing out on his duties for the past 14 months. Manoharan had been quoted in earlier reports to be mulling stepping down as assemblyman because he felt guilty towards his constituents.


"I even wrote to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on April 24 on my decision to resign and I was to have made the announcement on May 19 through (DAP chairman and lawyer) Karpal Singh," The Star quoted Manoharan, as saying.


"But since news of my intention to resign have already spread, I decided to state my stand," he said.


Manoharan claimed that he was released early because the Barisan Nasional did not want another by-election. (ANI)
