Chen Show Mao has stepped down from his position from the Treasurer of the Worker’s Party. This comes just three months after assuming the role in June for a two-year term.

This is his second term as Treasurer, after first being elected in 2014.

After his resignation, Chen remains a council member and will be succeeded by deputy treasurer NCMP Dennis Tan.

Earlier in June, there was speculation of internal rife within the Worker’s Party after Low Thia Khiang had narrowly survived being challenged for the position of Secretary-General by Chen.

Both Mr. Low and Chen has declined comment.Follow us on Social Media
