Lina Chiam accepts NCMP role for residents:

Mrs Lina Chiam, 62, will front her husband Chiam See Tong’s Singapore People's Party (SPP) in Parliament as a Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP). After a discussion with the party’s central executive committee, Mrs Chiam, its second vice-chairman, accepted the offer yesterday. Her acceptance extends the Chiam presence in Parliament, which stretches back to 1984. Mrs Chiam said in a statement that she accepted the position "to comply with the wishes of the residents of Potong Pasir". More in The New Paper on Friday (May 13).
