Kedah MCA deputy chairman Datuk Dr Leong Yong Kong has resigned from the party in protest after the PAS' Private Members Bill on hudud was allowed to be tabled in Parliament.

"I am announcing that from this moment on, I have quit MCA until this issue has a turnaround," said Dr Leong, who is also Gurun assemblyman, at a press conference in Sungai Petani at about 1pm Friday.

He said that he would leave it to the MCA president, Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah to decide on his state exco position.

However, Dr Leong said he would remain as Gurun assemblyman.

The hudud amendment Bill was the last item (no. 15) on Thursday's Parliament Order List but Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman moved a motion to bring the debate forward, citing Standing Order 14(2).

However, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang requested that the debate be deferred to the next Parliamentary meeting in October as Thursday was the last day of the current meeting.
