PAP salvo targets Workers' Party 'star' Chen #SGelections

PAP salvo targets Workers' Party 'star' Chen #SGelections

THE People's Action Party (PAP) has called on the Workers' Party (WP) to tell voters if its candidate Chen Show Mao can identify with the aspirations of Singaporeans, in what analysts see as the first salvo fired by the ruling party at what has been billed as the WP's 'star catch' ahead of the general election. The PAP's organising secretary, Dr Ng Eng Hen, has written to The Straits Times Forum Page to criticise the WP for not answering directly why Mr Chen, 50, is choosing to enter politics now, after having spent some 40 years of his life overseas. Dr Ng contrasted the WP's lack of clarity to the PAP's own approach of getting its candidates to answer openly. Read the full story in Tuesday's edition of The Straits Times.
