Upon seeing these results, Dr Paul Tambyah called out PAP’s action in calling the 2020 General Elections in the midst of a world pandemic  and he “emphasized the recklessness and opportunism of the PAP”. He, alongside Dr Chee Soon Juan, resolved to work harder for the people in their respective constituencies and improve their lives wherever they could.

These elections have so far proven to be rife with controversy, especially with the government’ decision to hold them amidst a global pandemic as well as the extended voting period.
