games contests begin!
After a week of wrangling, the opposition parties have finally agreed to avoid multi-corner fights in the coming general elections.
It seems that only Potong Pasir will see three candidates vying for the MPship but only because an independent candidate, Tan Lam Siong has shown an interest in contesting in the single member constituency.
NSP said it would no longer field candidates to contest Marine Parade GRC and MacPherson SMC – two constituencies that the Workers’ Party had staked claim to earlier. While the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) said it would allow the NSP to run in Sembawang GRC, even though the SDP had contested the constituency in the 2011 General Election.
SingFirst also announced that it would step aside in Ang Mo Kio GRC to allow the Reform Party to go head-to-head with the People’s Action Party team led by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
