WP supporter harasses Kenneth Jeyaretnam with racist messages
Posted by temasektimes on January 10, 2013
As the election campaign for Punggol East heats up, WP supporters have gone on a rampage to harass other opposition parties to intimidate them not to contest in the by-election!
Besides taunting and smearing other opposition supporters online, they have now resorted to attacking potential candidates to deter them from contesting in the election.
Reform Party Chief Kenneth Jeyaretnam got the shock of his life when he received a racist email from a WP supporter in his inbox today:
(The message is not republished here because of its offensive content against an ethnic minority in Singapore)
In the meantime, the Singapore Democratic party has sent notes to WP, inviting it for discussions to avoid a three-corner fight, but has yet to receive a formal reply from them.
The Workers Party has eschewed working with other opposition parties, preferring to align itself with the ruling PAP instead. Its Chairman Sylvia Lim frequently sung praises of the PAP in interviews with the international media, earning her the tag of being the PAP’s unofficial spokeswoman.
