SINGAPORE : MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC, Wee Siew Kim, will not contest in the upcoming General Election. Mr Wee announced he is retiring from politics during his address at the Jalan Kayu Day on Sunday evening. He has been MP for the Jalan Kayu Division of Ang Mo Kio GRC for nine-and-a-half years. Over the years, he said he and his grassroots leaders have had their share of joys and success, sadness and failures. He thanked his core team, which included the late Wee Chee Kang and Yam Meng Keng. Going forward, he said the newly-introduced PAP candidate Dr Intan Azura Mokhtar will be a "breath of fresh air" and bring different and innovative ideas to Jalan Kayu.
