Yesterday morning, Workers’ Party MP Low Thia Khiang, former Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) and other Hammer outreach members went to and to give out their party newsletter, as well as to talk to residents.

In a social media post, former NCMP Yee Jenn Jong shared photos and added that the team went to the newly reopened Market and met “some familiar stall owners again, back after 14 months of closure. Some had gone to work in other markets and some took a year’s sabbatical”.

Marine Parade is the ward currently helmed by Emeritus Senior Minister , while Geylang Serai is head by the People Action Party’s (PAP) Professor Fatimah Lateef.

The Workers’ Party could be visiting PAP GRC’s in a bid to challenge comments made by ESM Goh earlier. Emeritus Senior Minister  said in a recent interview with Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao that the PAP will have to occupy 75 to 80 percent of seats at the Parliament in order to come across as a strong government.

Yee also added, “As an entrepreneur, I appreciate that competition is the way to force the incumbent to be responsive and innovative, and the alternative had to be credible. That is why we have anti-monopoly law in business, but when it came to politics, we have often been told that the ruling party needs a super strong majority or even absolute rule (we just heard it again from ESM Goh). The playing field has been made deliberately unfair and even good people have been deterred from taking the alternative side because of fear”. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
