GEORGE TOWN: State Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry, Rural Development and Health Committee chairman Dr Afif Bahardin has been forced to resign from his position in the state government.

Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, in announcing this, said Dr Afif has tendered his resignation letter at about 8.15am on Wednesday (March 4).

"His resignation takes effect today.

"I will inform to the state secretary, state legal advisor and state financial officer about the resignation, and they will decide what to do next," he said.

It was believed that the state PKR leadership has been pushing for his removal from the state administration, following the political realignment in Putrajaya.

Dr Afif is a known supporter of former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
