When he first announced that he would be joining the ruling People’s Action Party in the lead up to the 2015 General Elections, ACRES founder Louis Ng was touted as the fresh face, if not the breath of fresh air, among those who joined the ’s ranks.
Ng stood out as an animal rights activist in contrast to the many civil servants, lawyers, unionists and military men that made up the PAP fold in GE2015.
Some even pointed out that he was not wearing the traditional white-on-white of the PAP during the hustings.
Why would an activist – which Ng was associated with for the RWS dolphins, local macaques and many other causes – want to join the PAP, when activists traditionally oppose Singapore government policies?
“The experience (working with the government) has been positive,” said Ng in 2014. “I have been able to push a number of issues, press for policy changes, and I intend to continue with ACRES and advocacy work.”
Almost a year after GE2015 and the Ng’s victory in Nee Soon GRC, what keeps the new Member of Parliament busy? Is he seeing the change he wants to see? Is he still working on ACRES? What are the other causes he is pushing for?
“I’m still the same Louis,” he once said.
Find out if politics has changed the advocate. Join the crew at The Agora as Louis Ng takes a walk on the wild side with former editor Howard Lee to talk about animals, advocacy and environmental policy.
And yes, he might just be asked about Pororo Park
“Walk on the wild side with Louis Ng” is happening next Thursday, 2 June 2016, 7pm at The Agora. Join as a forum participant! Registration is free on Eventbrite.
