Should Politicians who leave their Party resign their seat?

Should Australian Politicians who resign from their Political Party also resign their seat?.

At each election we vote for our local member, to represent us in Parliament.
Our vote is normally decided by what they say and represent at the time.

Most of us will vote for the local member of the Political Party that we support.

Some of these Politicians resign from that party, after we elected them as our representative for that party, and change to a different party.  One that we may not support.

Should they also then resign their seat in government, so that we get the chance to elect the person or the party that we wanted, and voted for.

Is it right that we vote for someone in Party A, but who then switches to Party B after being elected, and claims to be representing us, and our wishes.
