Al Fatiha: PAS MP Roslan Shaharum dies - Malaysiakini

PAS member of Parliament for Bukit Gantang Roslan Shaharum passed away this morning of a heart attack. He was 50.

PAS Info chief Mahfuz Omar told Malaysiakini that Roslan was out cycling near his home in Changkat Lallang, Batu Gajah, when he suddenly collapsed.

He leaves behind 10 children.

Roslan was formerly the human resource director of Perak Economic Development Corporation, and last July was named chairperson of Perak’s education foundation, Yayasan Perak.

In last March's election, Roslan defeated Umno treasurer Azim Zabidi by a majority of 1,566 votes. Bukit Gantang is a Malay majority seat with 27% Chinese and 10% Indian votes.

His death will pave the way for yet another by-election which must be held within 60 days. The by-election will be a referendum on the political situation in Perak and conducted at an awkward time for Umno when it will be having its general assembly due in late March.

The parliamentary constituency of Bukit Gantang includes the state seat of Changkat Jering which was won by PKR's Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu who recently threw his support behind BN.

Semoga rohnya dirahmati Allah SWT. Amin.
