I would like to announce that I am stepping down from the advisory board of The Independent Singapore (TISG) with immediate effect.
I am also currently in the process of divesting my shareholding in the company that operates TISG to the other existing share-holders, a process which should be complete in the next month or so. I was not involved in the operation or management of TISG.
However, I have decided to take this additional step to ensure that any perceived link to TISG does not distract public attention when policy positions are taken by the Workers’ Party, particularly on issues related to media regulation.
My recent appointment as Deputy Chair of the WP Media team also makes this a necessary move.
