The stage was set on 12 February 2010 for the dishonourable conduct of certain so-called Hon’ble Members of Parliament. That day marked the first PKR resignation – the MP for Bayan Baru – and sparked the dishonourable exit of two more traitors of the voters who supported the Pakatan Rakyat by electing these renegades. On 1 March 2010 the MP for Nibong Tebal, Tan Tee Beng, and two days later on 3 March, the MP for Bagan Serai, Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri, announced their resignations respectively.
