DEAR PAP SHOW SOME “BALLS”, FIELD YOUR “A” TEAM IN ALJUNIED GRC

First of all, I just want to come out and say that the Group Representation Constituency (GRC) is a scheme conjured up by the PAP to retain more seats in the parliament. The other ways of skewing the electorate to their advantage are: redrawing electoral boundaries, and punishing opposition GRCs and SRCs by withholding services. I do not support the concept of GRC at all. I strongly believe if the PAP is masculine enough, they will man up, and allow for only man-to-man square off in each constituency.

NG ENG HEN: UNFAIR TO FIELD POTENTIAL MINISTERS IN OPPOSITION ALJUNIED GRC

"Why would we want to field somebody that we know has a higher chance of being rejected and deprive ourselves of an office-holder? Suppose you put five ministers in (Aljunied). Does that serve the purpose? Is it fair to other constituencies who have shown us greater support?" said Dr Ng. Without any heavyweight minister in the team, the political newcomers from the PAP will just be relying on their own outreach efforts and anti-incumbency against the WP in order to get elected.

HDB REJECTS DIVORCEE’S FLAT APPLICATION DESPITE WP MP’S MANY APPEALS

I am now at my wits end and hope you can kindly help to highlight my difficulties as I've already seen my WP MP many times but suspect that the pap government is deliberately ignoring his appeals. I am a divorcee who's presently renting a flat in the open market as HDB has disallowed my application due to custody being awarded to my ex-wife who has since purchased a flat at another part of Aljunied GRC with my children.

SPF: DISTRIBUTION OF ANTI-WP FLYERS BY PAP MEMBERS NOT AN OFFENCE

The Singapore Police Force has issued a statement on a police report made about PAP activists' distribution of flyers in Aljunied GRC.

6 IN 10 ALJUNIED RESIDENTS OFFENDED BY PAP’S FLYER ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT WP

Over the weekend, Redwire spoke to 60 residents in Kovan, and the neighbouring Paya Lebar, and Serangoon housing estates. We wanted to find out how residents there took to the flyers, which highlighted AHPETC’s exorbitant managing agent rates as compared to PAP town councils, and alleged that improper governance led to AHPETC overpaying its friends at FMSS by at least S$6.4 million?

PAP HENCHMEN DISTRIBUTING FLYERS TO ALJUNIED RESIDENTS TELLING THEM TO FIX WP

People’s Action Party (PAP) activists in Aljunied GRC have gone on the offensive, distributing flyers today (March 13) urging residents to quiz their Workers’ Party (WP) Members of Parliament (MPs) over the accounting and corporate governance lapses committed by Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC). Titled "What You Should Ask WP’s Aljunied Hougang Punggol East Town Council", the flyer — which was in English and Chinese and came complete with a chart — compared AHPETC’s managing agent rates with those of some PAP town councils.

IS PAP MINISTER VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN SEEKING REDEMPTION?

NEA needs to keep its head in the right place. From food hygiene to the dengue epidermic to the emergence of chikungunya to the continued poor state of cleanliness of public toilets, this country is facing a litany of challenges. Yet instead of dedicating resources to tackling these issues, it prefers to spend a substantial amount of time looking for ways and means to sabotage AHPETC and engage in the most ridiculous form of petty politicking.

WORKERS PARTY URGE GOVERNMENT TO INVEST IN ELDERLY SINGAPOREANS

The Government should invest more in elderly Singaporeans as the country’s population continues to age, said Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC, Mr Chen Show Mao. Speaking in Parliament today (May 30), Mr Chen said Singapore can reap economic benefits if investments are made to redesign jobs, work places, processes and culture for older workers. This would help Singapore fully draw on the experiences and know-how of older workers, despite a slowdown in their physical bodies. It would also enable them to be as productive as or even more productive than their younger counterparts, he added. Mr Chen called for more investment to help elderly Singaporeans age in place. Calling them a “repository of social and cultural capital”, he said this would tap their long-standing ties to the community.
