      SINGAPORE - National Solidarity Party (NSP) secretary-general Tan Lam Siong has stepped down less than five months after being elected to the position at the party's biennial central executive committee election in January.

       

      An NSP statement on Wednesday night said that he stepped down "to focus more on his passion for social and community work, and charitable pursuits".

       

      Mr Tan told The Straits Times that he remains a "congress member" - or cadre member - of the party, with voting powers. He did not elaborate on the reasons for his stepping down or say who would succeed him.

       

      The NSP's statement, signed by party president Sebastian Teo, said that during his tenure as secretary-general, Mr Tan had been "energetic and resourceful, putting in place new initiatives and introducing new perspectives into the party".

      "Whilst the party is sad to lose him as our secretary-general, we would like to thank him for his contributions during this period, and wish him all the best in his pursuits."

       

      Mr Teo added in a comment to The Straits Times that the next secretary-general will be decided on at a party meeting scheduled for next week.

    • He is in Potong Pasir as an independent now. His trick is to buy the voters using free roti.

    • Don't know what is his intention?   Impossible for him to win via Potong Pasir route.  RP and PPP tried to pull him to contest in Choa Chu Kang and Radin Mas where there would not be multi-corner fight but he still insist on fighting in Potong Pasir.   Must be got people stake him to contest in Potong Pasir and offered him some benefits if he could get a certain percentage there even if he loses his deposit.   He and his previous party have never been active in Potong Pasir.

      It is not as though he lives in Potong Pasir, studied at St Andrews and has special feelings for Potong Pasir.  He is not "Son of Potong Pasir".
