SINGAPORE: The Workers’ Party Youth Wing (WPYW) held its biennial conference last Saturday, June 24, for its new leadership, whose term will be from 2023 to 2025, to be elected.
Over social media posts, Ms Nicole Seah, 36, who was appointed president of the youth wing early in 2021, expressed heartfelt thanks to the outgoing executive committee for their hard work over the past two years, as well as congratulated the incoming exco members, saying that she was “look(ing) forward to working with all of you.”
A photo of the new leadership was posted on the WPYW Facebook page, also shared by Ms Seah.
Here is the WPYW leadership for 2023 to 2025:
President: Nicole Seah 佘雪玲
Vice-President: Texas Hong 洪伟伦
Secretary: Fikril Hakim Bin Azril
Executive Committee Members:
Jackson Au, Kelvin Yap, Marissa Lee, Muhammad Ihsan

The WPYW “was set up to produce an alternative youth platform with its own niche and to organise national, political, grassroots, social and community activities to increase awareness among youths,” reads the WP website.
Interestingly, Aljunied GRC MP Leon Perera served as head of the party’s Youth Wing some years back. He went on to serve as a Non-Constituency Member for the 13th Parliament of Singapore from 2015 to 2020, as the WP team had been the best-performing opposition team in GE2015 at East Coast GRC, where Ms Seah has also been active over the past few years.
The WPYW carries out several activities, including a futsal tournament last month at The Cage, Kallang, which Mr Perera and fellow Aljunied GRC MP Gerald Giam joined and where party chair Sylvia Lim refereed; a pst-budget town hall in March; a beach clean-up and even a policy challenge late last year. /TISG
