This morning at the Nomination Centre, the Reform Party’s nominations papers contained an error. They had not deleted the words “We are standing as a group of independent candidates” in their declaration before a Commissioner of Oaths.
This is against our election laws as you cannot be both independent candidates and party candidates. Our PAP team spotted the error and I informed Mr Kenneth Jeyaratnam of the Reform Party so that they had enough time to correct it.
If the error wasn’t corrected, we were advised that the Reform Party team would have been disqualified on technical grounds. We the PAP team do not want to win on technicalities.
We want to give our West Coast GRC voters a choice and look forward to a fair contest between our PAP team and the Reform Party team.
