Campaigning on cost of living concerns

Campaigning on cost of living concerns

OPPOSITION candidate Teo Soh Lung will campaign mainly on the issue on the high cost of living to persuade voters into her party's camp. Also on her agenda, other issues such as rising housing costs, the lack of transparency, and the lack of debate and questioning from MPs in Parliament. The retired lawyer and former Internal Security Act detainee is contesting under the Singapore Democratic Party's (SDP) ticket. She is likely to stand in the Yuhua single seat, where she would go up against Senior Minister of State for National Development and Education Grace Fu. Ms Teo, 61, told reporters on Sunday after a walkabout at Yuhua Market and Hawker centre in Jurong East that response from the ground so far has been 'fantastic'. Read the full story in Monday's edition of The Straits Times.
