Mr S Iswaran, the Minister for Communications and Information, serves as an MP for West Coast GRC along with Foo Mee Har.

Dr Tan made his entry into politics in the 1980 general election under the PAP, and became the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ayer Rajah Single Member Constituency (SMC).

At the dinner at Sheng Hong temple, Dr Tan shared photos of how he was seated next to Mr Iswaran and Ms Foo.

The slew of photos posted by Dr Tan showed him walking up to the event surrounded by possible new party members such as Brad Bowyer.

Bowyer initially served as Lim Tean’s Shadow Minister for National Development at People’s Voice Party, but abruptly left the party on March 24 just days after the announcement of his position.

That very day, Ms Foo also shared photos on her Facebook page where she attended the Hari Raya Adilfitri celebration at Ayer Rajah CC. She wrote, “Our month-long Hari Raya Adilfitri celebration ended at a high note at Ayer Rajah CC last evening with a wonderful community event!”

While it is expected that Dr Tan will lead a team to contest West Coast GRC, he has yet to reveal his plans for the next election, as well as all of his party members. /TISG
