    • Punggol East by-election on 26 Jan

      Posted: 09 January 2013 1614 hrs


      SINGAPORE: A by-election will be held for Punggol East Single-Member Constituency (SMC), after Member of Parliament Michael Palmer resigned over an extra-marital affair.

      Nomination Day will be held on 16 January 2013. If more than one candidate stand for nominations on Nomination Day, Polling Day will be held on 26 January 2013. Polling Day will not be a public holiday.

      The president issued the Writ of Election on Wednesday.

      The Nomination Place is North Vista Secondary School at Rivervale Link.

      The Returning Officer is Mr Yam Ah Mee, chief executive director of the People's Association.

      Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said he had decided to hold a by-election in Punggol East to give the residents their own Member of Parliament, before Singapore focuses back on national issues. 

      In a statement, he said: "We have a busy national agenda this year. The White Paper on Population will soon be debated in Parliament. Budget 2013 is around the corner. The Our Singapore Conversation is translating the views of citizens into programmes to improve our lives."

      Mr Lee hopes Punggol East residents will vote for the candidate who can best represent them in Parliament, solve their problems and improve their lives. 

      He said Minister of State and Mayor Teo Ser Luck has been overseeing the constituency, while Mr Zainal Sapari has been chairing the Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council. 

      Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean has also taken a personal interest in the residents' welfare.

    • Why do the other opposition parties insist in participating in the by-election even though they are well aware that a multi-corner fight will almost lead to the PAP winning the by-election based on historical trend, even to the extent that some opposition candidates know that they will lose election deposits ? icon_rolleyes.gif

      Just to be in the festive election mood ? Win or lose, never mind ? icon_lol.gif
