Former MP Chiam See Tong not contesting Presidential Election - Channel NewsAsia #sgelections #sgelection

SINGAPORE: Former Potong Pasir opposition MP, Mr Chiam See Tong, has given his clearest indication that he will not be contesting in the forthcoming Presidential Election. In an SMS reply to queries by the media, Mr Chiam said he is touched and thankful for the regard given by Singaporeans and supporters that they have even collected the Presidential Election documents and passed them to him. Nonetheless, Mr Chiam said he feels that it is unlikely he will qualify and hence he will focus on serving Singaporeans in his present capacity. Three people turned up at the Elections Department on Thursday and collected the form, but they did not identify themselves to the media. It was later reported that the group had handed the form to Mr Chiam in Potong Pasir on Thursday night during one of his meet-the-residents sessions.
