I do not care why David Ong resigned, I do not want to know why he resign. For all we know, he has come down with serious illness and all he wants now is peace and quiet to recuperate. Speculation of such is pointless, it is smarter to think forward.
This time is ripe and the opportunity has come. I think it is time for Dr Chee Soon Juan to return to Parliament after his years in the political wilderness. Since there will be a bt election, the by election effect will be in full swing. Singaporeans in Bukit Batok SMC can vote without fear of the PAP losing power and allow more alternate voices in Parliament.
Dr Chee's fiery performances during GE2015 has given the 30 percent of Singaporeans hope that one day we will have a multi-party Government with true checks and balances. This is a perfect opportunity for Dr Chee Soon Juan to step up and capture Bukit Batok from the PAP. This is the time for Dr Chee to prove his mantle and put his words into actions. Since SDP contested in Bukit Batok SMC, it makes perfect sense for Dr Chee to stand.
Time for Dr Chee to be the people's choice in Bukit Batok and give the PAP the tongue lashing they deserve in Parliament. Come this by-election, vote for Dr Chee, vote for the future, vote for a more democratic Singapore!
