The announcement follows closely behind Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s Progress Singapore Party’s (PSP) introduction of a new Assistant Secretary-General (ASG) as well as four more members into the CEC.
In his post on Monday (Jan 20), Mr Lim wrote: “Some of the faces may not be familiar to all of you but I can vouch that they work equally hard behind the limelights”. (sic)
The other members are as follows:
Christopher Ang (Asst Secretary-General)
Matthew Chin Guan Tan (Head, Ground Operations)
Dr Wong Souk Yee (Asst Treasurer)
Dr Chee Soon Juan 徐顺全 (Secretary-General)
Damanhuri Bin Abas (Head, Training & Development)
Jufri Salim (Organizing Secretary/International Liaison Officer)
Surayah Akbar (Head, Secretariat/Media Liaison)
Francis Yong (Head, Logistics)
Gerald Sng (Deputy Head, Ground Operations)
Khung Wai Yeen 江伟贤- SDP (Deputy Head, Training & Development)
Ashukumar Veerappan (Deputy Head, Logistics)
The Singapore Democratic Party was first out of the gate to announce that it intends to contest five constituencies at the next General Election – the same electoral divisions it contested in 2015.
The opposition party plans to field candidates for two Group Representation Constituencies (GRCs) – Holland-Bukit Timah and Marsiling-Yew Tee – and the single-seat wards of Bukit Batok, Yuhua and Bukit Panjang, it said early last August.
The SDP could be taking a risk with its announcements with the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee (ERBC) not having finished its review of electoral boundaries. -/TISG
