WP should reject NCMP seats to further burnish its reputation, says our reader. #SGelections

MS FONG HANG YIN: 'The Workers' Party has proven its mettle. Perhaps the next step in burnishing its reputation is to turn down the offer of Non-Constituency MP (NCMP) seats. The PAP's Mr Sitoh Yih Pin had to overcome immense obstacles to win Potong Pasir on his third try. He did it without the advantage enjoyed by opposition candidates on the NCMP ticket. Political parties elected into Parliament should not be offered an NCMP ticket for its unsuccessful members at the expense of elected MPs who had won on merit. Elected MPs should also not use the existing office facilities of their predecessors. Their constituents would respect them more if they can show that they are as able as the ward's previous MP in implementing their vision through their own ideas and efforts.'
