On Saturday, the PAP announced its candidates for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC for the upcoming General Elections. The new faces joining the incumbent 6 member team are former Chief of Defence Force, LG Ng Chee Meng and Sun Xueling, an investment director with Temasek Holding.
They will replace Gan Thiam Poh who has been redeployed to Ang Mo Kio GRC and Penny Low who is retiring from politics. In GE2011, the PAP team helmed by DPM Teo Chee Hean beat their SDA challenger with a 64.79% of votes. The other members of the PAP team are Teo Ser Luck, Zainal Sapari and Janil Puthucheary.
The Singapore Democratic Alliance led by Desmond Ng has indicated it would contest in Pasir ris-Punggol GRC again.
Are Singaporeans looking forward to LG Ng bringing his wealth of military experience to the people? Can he connect with the people? Pasir Ris-Punggol residents are watching this closely.
