Pritam Singh dropped as Vice-Chair of WP media team

However, he remains as a Council member of the CEC.
The change came in aftermath of recent boo-boos made by Mr Singh, including his much publicized online spat with former WP Youth leader Andrew Loh Hong Puey.
Mr Singh had embarrassed the party when he was exposed in parliament by DPM Teo Chee Hean for outright plagiarizing the work of others in his parliamentary speech earlier this year.
He also courted controversy last year by declaring that the Workers Party will form a coalition government with the ruling party should it fail to win a majority in the next election.
There are no major changes in the leadership line-up with Low Thia Kiang remaining as the party Secretary-General and Sylvia Lim the Chairman.
Low has been the Secretary-General of WP since 2001 after he ‘ousted’ his mentor Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam which led to a bitter split within the party.
