Disgraced former WP MP Yaw Shin Leong (pic left) has issued an ‘apology’ to Hougang residents in the midst of the election campaigning, more than three months after he was sacked from WP for his failure to address rumors swirling around his alleged extramarital affairs with multiple married women, including two key WP female leaders who contested in the General Election last year.
In the letter, Yaw wrote that with the Hougang by-election around the corner, he would like to take the ‘opportunity’ to ‘thank’ Hougang voters for casting their votes for him during 2011 election.
“I also wish to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you, for the whole episode and having to go through the polls again as a result of my expulsion from the Workers’ Party,” he added.
After his sordid affairs were exposed in the media, Yaw left Singapore almost immediately, leaving Hougang residents in the lurch. He went ‘missing in action’ for months before returning to Singapore recently.
Yaw also did not clarify if he did have sex with the two WP female leaders as alleged by the media or whether he was involved in other ‘hanky-panky’ business within the party.
According to a former WP member, Yaw’s half-baked ‘apology’ is nothing more but an election ‘gimmick’ to win the votes of Hougang residents for the Workers Party.
“The sentiments on the ground is not too good. There are some Hougang residents who still feel sore over the Yaw scandal and it will cost WP votes in the coming election,” he said.
