Singapore Democratic Party's Chee Soon Juan has written to PM Lee to call for a By-Election for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC in light of Mdm Halimah Yacob's resignation.

DR CHEE: WAS VIDEO OF ACADEMIC CENSORED DUE TO RUN-IN WITH LAW MINISTER?

I note that a video where Mr Donald Low gave a talk at a forum organised by the FOSG (Future of Singapore) was removed this morning. Mr Low had spoken about Singapore's economic growth model. This comes at a time when the LKYSPP academic had a run-in with Mr K Shanmugam and had to apologise.

Yet, it was removed.
