PAP holds closed-door session in Pasir Ris
SINGAPORE: Nearly 100 activists and party helpers from the ruling People's Action Party (PAP) met in a closed-door session at Downtown East in Pasir Ris Wednesday evening, ahead of the impending General Election. Among those present were the PAP's second assistant secretary-general and Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and PAP Central Committee Member Lim Swee Say, and several incumbent Members of Parliament. The one-and-a-half-hour meeting was to brief the helpers and activists of preparations for the hustings, and to clear any doubts they may have of procedures connected with campaigning. Activists and MPs remained tight-lipped as they entered the meeting room, while Mr Lim said the discussion was an internal party matter, not to be shared publicly.
