The People’s Action Party (PAP) has been unveiling its candidates for the upcoming election over the past two weeks. But the party has yet to formally introduce its candidates for East Coast, Marine Parade, Nee Soon and Aljunied Group Representation Constituencies (GRC). It also has not formally introduced its candidate for Fengshan Single Member Constituency (SMC).
The constituencies are mostly in the east, and also where the Workers’ Party (WP) has announced its intention to contest.
… Associate Professor Alan Chong of the Nanyang Technological University’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies said this shows there is a certain wisening up on both sides of the political divide. “They know the elections are a very serious contest, more serious than it has ever been in the last 40 years or so,” he said.
