KUANTAN, April 4 -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) will be submitting a letter of demand for RM10 million to Kuala Langat MP Datuk Dr Xavier Jayakumar for leaving the party last month.

PKR treasurer-general Lee Chean Chung said the letter would be delivered by the party’s lawyer to Xavier tomorrow and the former PKR vice-president is given up to seven days to settle it.

"Any elected representatives who decide to leave the party will face the same faith, in which they have to pay RM10 million as agreed,” he said.

Lee who is also Semambu assemblyman told reporters when met at the Indera Mahkota 2020 branch annual general meeting here today.
