PA lifts restriction on invitees to events on PA-leased sites

The People's Association is lifting its restriction on who residents can - or cannot - invite to events that are held on PA-leased sites, so long as the activities are of a 'non-political' nature. -- PHOTO: ST FILE By Li Xueying The People's Association is lifting its restriction on who residents can - or cannot - invite to events that are held on PA-leased sites, so long as the activities are of a 'non-political' nature. What this means is that opposition MPs can now be invited to these activities. The lifting of the restriction, however, applies to only events organised by non-grassroots organisations. This latest move, announced in a joint statement by the Housing Board and PA on Tuesday night, comes in the wake of a furore over the use of public spaces in Aljunied GRC.
