He noted that Edwin Tong – whose image was on the banner – is the elected Member of Parliament of his estate.

“It is in the right spirit to help fixing it”, Mr Yap wrote, wishing residents of Joo Chiat area and Mr Tong a Happy Lunar New Year.

During the 2020 General Elections, Yee Jenn Jong contested in Marine Parade GRC along with Mr Ron Tan, Mr Muhammad Fadli Mohammed Fawzi, Mr Nathaniel Koh and Mr Muhammad Azhar Abdul Latip.

They faced off against a PAP team consisting of Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Mr Seah Kian Peng, Mr Edwin Tong, Mr Mohd Fahmi Aliman and Dr Tan See Leng. /TISG
