Nasarudin is first BN rep to join Opposition

PETALING JAYA: Bota assemblyman Datuk Nasarudin Hashim is quitting Umno to join PKR, making him the first Barisan Nasional elected representive to join the opposition party after the general election last year.

News of his defection sent shockwaves in Umno circles in Perak and around the country.

Pakatan Rakyat will now have 32 assemblymen in Perak, with Umno having one fewer at 27.

Good news indeed and will this open the floodgates of defections to PKR that failed to materialise last September? I hope the few good men in BN will have the courage and do the honorable thing and join PKR!
