How will you vote if a by-election is held in Hougang? #Singapore

Workers’ Party (WP) decision to expel member of parliament Yaw Shin Leong from the party has left a gaping hole in the Hougang constituency. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has declared he “will consider carefully” whether to hold a by-election. He reportedly said there’s no fixed time within which he must call a by-election, adding that “there are many other issues on the national agenda right now”. Meanwhile other opposition members are reported to be eyeing the vacant single member constituency seat. The New Paper has reported that former Singapore Democratic Party’s Tan Jee Say may be interested while the National Solidatarity Party may also be weighing its options. Under the Constitution, the government shall call a by-election when an MP in a single-member constituency vacates his office, dies or resigns. So how will you vote in the event of a by-election in Hougang?
