PAP profile, but likely opposition candidate #SGelections

PAP profile, but likely opposition candidate #SGelections

MANY aspects of Mr Benjamin Pwee's background mark him out as a PAP candidate. But it looks likely that the 43-year-old will instead contest as opposition veteran Chiam See Tong's teammate in Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC. He is a former chairman of the People's Action Party (PAP) youth wing in the Thomson area, one year ahead of PAP candidate Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing in Raffles Institution and Raffles Junior College, a former Administrative Service officer and the son of long-time PAP grassroots leader Robert Pwee. But Mr Pwee, who runs his own business strategy consulting firm I-deo Asia, has been in talks with Mr Chiam's Singapore People's Party (SPP) since last week to contest with the Potong Pasir MP in the five-member Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC at the coming polls. Read the full story in Saturday's edition of The Straits Times.
