Desmond Choo: I will serve Hougang residents for as long as it takes

Posted by temasektimes on May 12, 2012

Despite the odds clearly stacked against him, PAP candidate for Hougang Desmond Choo (pic left, Facebook) has declared his intention to continue serving Hougang residents for as long as it takes, even if he loses a few more times in the WP stronghold.

Many political analysts such as Derek Da Cunha and Eugene Tan have predicted an ‘easy’ victory for the Workers Party with Yahoo News going all the way out to promote WP candidate Png Eng Huat.

WP supporters have already popped the champagne to celebrate WP’s likely victory with many predicting that it will win by a greater margin this time.

Even PAP leaders like Teo Chee Hean and Tan Chuan-Jin have admitted that Mr Choo is the ‘underdog’ in the by-election.

In an interview with Lianhe Zaobao, Mr Choo said:

“So long there is still a need, I will stay on in Hougang to improve the lives of residents no matter how long it takes.”

(“只要还有这个需要(as long as it takes),只要我还能协助改善居民的生活,我都会留下。当然,最后必须由总理做出决定,但如果有得选,我会继续奋斗下去。”)

He reiterated that he is in Hougang for the long haul and has formulated several plans for the residents such as the Home Improvement Programme, adding that he has also fulfilled the election promises he made to Hougang voters last year such as giving free tuition to needy students and setting up a job hub to help unemployed residents.

The seat of Hougang was left vacant after its ex-WP MP Yaw Shin Leong was sacked from WP for his refusal to address swirling rumors about his alleged extramarital affairs with married women, including two female leaders of the party.

    Now talk niah. Like all your other PAP moron dogs MPs (remember it is not me who started to call Singaporeans dogs and morons). When during election, can promise the sky moon stars sun, crying, apologizing, give freebies.

    When elected. All promises gone. Voice become silent.

    That is what the moron dogs are famous of doing.
