Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim is a Malaysian politician and the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Bayan Baru constituency in Penang, Malaysia. He holds the seat as an Independent.
Zahrain was elected to Parliament in the 2008 election as a member of the opposition People's Justice Party (PKR). As Chairman of the Penang division of PKR, he had been criticised by his Pakatan Rakyat coalition partner, the Democratic Action Party for speaking out against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. In January 2010, he attacked Lim as being a “dictator, a chauvinist and communist-minded”, citing what Zahrain saw as a failure by Lim to deliver on his election promises. He subsequently left PKR to sit in Parliament as an independent.
Zahrain is also President of the Football Association of Penang.
