Singapore—Pritam Singh, the Secretary-General of The Workers’ Party (WP) and the officially designated Leader of the Opposition, posted photos on Monday afternoon (July 27) of the newly-elected WP Members of Parliament (MPs) that have gone viral.
The Aljunied Group Representation (GRC) MPs—Mr Pritam Singh, party chair Sylvia Lim, Muhamad Faisal Manap, Gerald Giam, and Leon Perera—were photographed at the Istana. And the Sengkang GRC MPs—He Ting Ru, Raeesah Khan, Jamus Lim and Louis Ng along with Hougang SMC MP Dennis Tan Lip Fong, had their photo taken in Parliament.
They were at the 2020 Cabinet Swearing-In Ceremony, which was held simultaneously at the Istana and in Parliament as part of safe-distancing measures.
Netizens have flooded Mr Pritam’s wall with well-wishes.
Others, however, had some warnings for the new MPs.
Many acknowledged that the WP MPs have a “tough road ahead” given than they are still very much the minority in Parliament. Nevertheless, netizens assured the WP of their strong support.
Others said that seeing the WP MPs gave them hope for the country.
