Dr Chee’s mother is said to have attended most of his rallies since he joined the SDP.

In 2015, the SDP leader said he had tried to keep his private life away from the public eye to not give ammunition to his detractors but relented after his wife gave permission for her and their children to appear in videos about his personal life.

During an SDP event in 2016, Dr Chee’s mother was invited on stage to show her support for her son.
