Mr Chen quit during the Central Executive Council meeting held on Tuesday. While he has relinquished his role as the treasurer, he remains as a Council member.
Secretary-General Low Thia Khiang confirmed Mr Chen’s resignation. He said that queries related to Mr Chen’s resignation should be channeled towards Mr Chen directly.
Non-Constituency MP Dennis Tan who was deputy treasurer, would take on the role of the treasurer.
Observers indicated that this could be a sign that all is not well within the WP camp.
The resignation comes after Mr Chen challenged Mr Low for the post of Secretary-General in May this year. The cadre voted 61 to 45, in favour of Mr Low.
