PAP begins search for candidates for next general election

The pace of recruitment in the People's Action Party (PAP) is picking up, with MPs saying they have identified potential candidates for the next general election - and are even exposing them to party work. Some among the 12 interviewed are submitting the names to party headquarters, and expect the new faces to be sent to their branches to learn the ropes as early as the middle of next year. This is sooner than the timeline in the past two general elections, which saw most potential candidates sent to the ground about a year before Polling Day, with some as late as five weeks. The next election is due by 2016. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
