'Always prepared' to stand for PAP: Desmond Choo, former PAP candidate for Hougang in the 2011 GE

'Always prepared' to stand for PAP: Desmond Choo, former PAP candidate for Hougang in the 2011 GE

Mr Choo said he would consider starting Meet-the-People Sessions if residents express a demand for the PAP to do so. -- ST FILE PHOTO With Mr Yaw Shin Leong's expulsion from the Workers' Party leaving his Hougang seat vacant, the question is whether a by-election will be held in the single-member constituency. But for former People's Action Party Hougang candidate Desmond Choo, the answer is immaterial. 'I've been working the ground for a while now and will continue to do so. Whether there will be a by-election or not, doesn't affect my plans,' Mr Choo, 33, told The Straits Times on Wednesday. 'I have been serving the people consistently and will continue to do so.'
