SPP's Lina Chiam takes up NCMP seat #SGelections

THE Singapore People's Party's (SPP) Lina Chiam will be taking up a Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) seat in Parliament, after receiving approval from the party's central executive committee. In a statement, the SPP said Mrs Chiam will be supported by its Policy Working Group. The 15-member group is led by Mr Benjamin Pwee. Through Mrs Chiam, the SPP wishes to raise the concerns of all Singaporeans in Parliament - not just those in Potong Pasir, Hong Kah North and Bishan-Toa Payoh. According to a media report, Mrs Chiam has said that she is accepting the offer for two reasons: to accommodate the wishes of Potong Pasir residents and the narrow win by the People's Action Party. The party added that its engagement efforts with Singaporeans will be maintained through dialogue groups and online forums, among other platforms.
