Lim Boon Heng stepping down

MINISTER in the Prime Minister's Office Lim Boon Heng announced on Sunday that he will not be seeking re-election. The Jurong GRC MP said this when speaking at the launch of the Jurong Town Council's five-year concept master plan for the area. He said that he will continue to serve in the People's Association, where he is currently the deputy chairman; and also in the National Trades Union Congress, where he is chairman of its Social Enterprises Development Council. Mr Lim, who is also chairman of the People's Action Party did not immediately comment on whether he would continue in that role. The 63-year-old Mr Lim, who was first elected in 1980, said that he offered to stand down as an MP at the 2006 general election but was asked by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to stay on for one more term. Read the full story in Monday's edition of The Straits Times.
