Shah Alam, Jan 28 – Lee Chin Cheh, who resigned as Kajang state assemblyman yesterday, said the decision was made based on common interest and to strengthen the opposition’s ability to serve the people in Selangor.
Lee, 43, in a brief statement here, also expressed his gratitude to the voters in Kajang, who had given him the opportunity to become their elected representative.
“I am moved by the generosity of the voters in Kajang, who have given me their cooperation and confidence all this time,” he said.
Lee, a lawyer, is one of the newcomers from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) who contested in the 13th general election last year.
He garnered 19,571 votes to win by a 6,824-majority vote in a six-cornered fight against candidates from the Barisan Nasional (BN), Berjasa and three independents.
