Last Thursday, Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s party, the Progress Singapore Party (PSP) launched its inaugural Meet the People Session (MPS) that attracted about 200 attendees.
As the party prepares for its official launch in June, Dr Tan announced his intention to hold regular meet-the-people sessions.
Present at the session and seated beside Dr Tan was party treasurer Mr S Nallakaruppan who works in the finance industry.
Commenting on the turnout of the event on social media, Dr Tan added, “We are grateful that many signed up to join our party after this event. The party is preparing for it’s official launch in June — more details will be forthcoming as we await the various official approvals”.
He also said that the 200 or so people who attended had all signed up through social media.
Dr Tan’s party was formally registered in April this year when he had said that he had chosen to form his own party instead of joining an established opposition banner, leading an opposition coalition, or running as an independent since he felt that this was the “right” route for him./TISG
