PM Lee: "The WP has let down the voters of Hougang". #hougangbyelection

SINGAPORE : Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has said there is no fixed time within which he must call a by-election. Responding to media queries over the Workers' Party's expulsion of its MP for Hougang, Yaw Shin Leong, Mr Lee said an election is a very serious matter and noted that Singapore just had a General Election less than a year ago. Mr Lee said: "Now, the Hougang SMC is vacant, as a result of what Mr Yaw Shin Leong has done, and the way the WP has handled the matter". He said that "the WP has let down the voters of Hougang". On whether a by-election in Hougang will be held, and the timing, Mr Lee said he "will consider the matter carefully". He added that "there are many other issues on the national agenda right now".
