Former National Solidarity Party (NSP) candidate Nicole Seah appears to have joined the only opposition party elected into parliament presently, the Workers’ Party.

The 30-year-old, who made waves when she contested the 2011 General Election at the young age of 24, was recently spotted participating in WP walkabouts in East Coast GRC and at a door-to-door food distribution exercise in Bedok earlier this year.

She began volunteering with the WP’s media team following the last General Election, which she did not contest. She has also been credited with writing parts of the WP’s 60th anniversary book that was released in November this year.

Seah left her former party in 2014, commenting that her job was done. She later indicated that her entry into politics had emotionally scarred her, earning the sympathy of several netizens.

Seah’s re-entry into politics and involvement with the WP has been met with mixed reactions. Some encouraged Seah and predicted that she will perform better in the next General Election, if she chooses to contest under the WP ticket:

Others were less generous and questioned her motives for joining the WP, after her extended silence on socio-political issues here:

Some also opined that the WP may drag Seah down with it, given persistent town council management issues it deals with – especially with the ongoing $33 million Aljunied-Hougang Town Council lawsuit:

Former WP politician Goh Meng Seng echoed such sentiments and told journalists:

“There is no doubt that she has charisma. But given that the WP is struggling to hold on to Aljunied GRC, where it is the incumbent, it is unlikely she can help them take East Coast.”
