Low Thia Kiang: Recent ‘events’ were made to ‘sabotage’ Png Eng Huat

Posted by temasektimes on May 23, 2012

Recent ‘events’ were manufactured intentionally to damage the party and ‘sabotage’ its candidate for the Hougang by-election Png Eng Huat, said WP Chief Low Thia Kiang.

Speaking during an election rally last night, Mr Low urged voters not to be ‘distracted’ by the NCMP ballot saga which started when Mr Png told the media that he did not consider himself for the NCMP post as he was ‘against’ it.

“I actually took my name out of the ballot for the NCMP post. Because I have a personal stand against the NCMP scheme, so that’s why my name wasn’t in the ballot.”

However, after a WP insider sent the minutes of a WP CEC meeting to the press which revealed that Mr Png’s name was on the ballot, he changed his story and said it was ‘part of the procedure’ for every candidate in the team to be included for consideration in the ‘secret ballot’ by the CEC.

Mr Low admitted that the leaked minutes of the meeting is genuine and produced the NCMP ballot paper to the crowd last night, proclaiming that ALL the names of the East Coast GRC team members were considered for the post.

“This is the ballot which I prepared, with all the names of the team on the ballot paper. Png Eng Huat had told me before and after the General Election that he was strongly against the NCMP scheme and had not wanted to be considered for the NCMP position, just as Eric Tan had told me of his desire to be NCMP. However I still listed the names of the whole East Coast GRC team, because they were all part of the team.”

In the minutes of the WP CEC meeting obtained by the media, the names of Glenda Han and Mohd Fazli, two members of the WP East Coast GRC team were LEFT OUT of the ballot:

DPM Teo Chee Hean: I am disappointed with WP supporters for dragging in their grandmothers to make voters angry and emotional

Posted by temasektimes on May 23, 2012

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean has expressed his disappointment at the vicious smear campaign launched by WP supporters online to discredit and demolish the PAP candidate for Hougang Mr Desmond Choo.

Speaking to the media during a tour of Hougang on Monday, DPM Teo said he was disappointed with what has been written online by WP supporters:

“There is another aspect of the campaign this time round, by and large it has been good, and it has been clean. But there is one aspect which has saddened me and disappointed me a little particularly online.”

One WP supporter by the name of Seah Ee Onn has earlier accused Mr Desmond Choo of asking his grandmother to vote for him in exchange of an unknown ‘gift’. He had since deleted his comment left on Facebook.

“Those who claim to be supporters of the Workers’ Party dragged in their grandmothers, made all sorts of wild accusations, even unfortunately tried to capitalise on a tragic incident to make voters angry and emotional.”

Besides Seah, other WP supporters have also been hurling all kinds of wild, baseless and malicious allegations at Mr Choo including one extremist socio-political blog with a pathetic low readership claiming that he attributed his ‘low’ rally turnout to his friends playing ‘Diablo 3′, a PC game.

“I am very saddened by that, they claim to be supporters of the Workers’ Party, I think they should stop doing that. I am ashamed people are doing these kinds of things on the net,” DPM Teo added.

WP supporters are so confident of WP’s chances this Saturday that they have already popped the champagne to celebrate with some predicting a even ‘bigger’ margin of victory than last year.

Png Eng Huat: NCMP ballot ‘flip-flop’ will not affect my chances in the by-election

Posted by temasektimes on May 22, 2012

Despite his numerous flip-flops in less than a day on the NCMP ballot issue, WP candidate for Hougang Png Eng Huat remains confident that the episode will not affect his chances in the by-election.

Mr Png had earlier claimed that he took his name out of the ballot for the NCMP scheme, but after it was revealed that his name was in the ballot, he changed his story and said it is ‘part of the procedure’ for EVERY candidate in the team to be considered in the ballot.

According to the WP CEC minutes sent to the press – only three names were on the ballot: Eric Tan, Gerald Giam and Png Eng Huat. Two other members of the team Glenda Han and Mohd Fazli were not considered for the position.

The episode not only caused some confusion among Singaporeans, but dented public confidence in the Workers Party and its choice of candidate as well after the Yaw Shin Leong sex scandal which led to the need to call for a by-election on 26 May.

However, Mr Png does not think too much of the episode. Speaking to queries from the media, he declared:

“This episode would not have an impact on voters’ confidence in the party or affect my chances in the by-election.”

When asked to comment further on the issue, he told the press that WP Chief Low Thia Kiang will be addressing it in tonight’s rally.

Meanwhile, WP supporters  have rallied behind Mr Png in cyberspace by attacking those who dare to criticize him even as they continue their vicious smear campaign against his PAP opponent Desmond Choo.

Many political pundits such as Derek Da Cunha and Eugene Tan have dismissed the chances of Mr Choo with the pro-WP Yahoo News predicting an ‘easy victory’ for WP even before a single vote is cast as if Hougang is its ‘property’.

Png Eng Huat clarifies: Part of ‘procedure’ for EVERY candidate in the team to be included in ballot for NCMP post

Posted by temasektimes on May 22, 2012

WP candidate for Hougang Mr Png Eng Huat has apologized for causing ‘confusion’ to those who thought he had ‘literally’ omitted his name from the ballot papers.

Mr Png had earlier claimed he did not consider himself for the NCMP post as he was ‘against’ it.

“I actually took my name out of the ballot for the NCMP post. Because I have a personal stand against the NCMP scheme, so that’s why my name wasn’t in the ballot. So I don’t think DPM knows all of these.

However, in an email sent to Lianhe Zaobao, one WP insider revealed that contrary to what Mr Png had said, his name was on the ballot and he received only one vote for the position.

The anonymous source go on to say that Mr Png had never stated he was against the NCMP scheme:

“Nowhere in this meeting did Png Eng Huat indicate to the CEC to remove his name from the ballot. In fact there was one CEC vote for him.”

Speaking to queries from the media during a walkabout this morning, Mr Png reiterated that he had told WP Chief Low Thia Kiang that he did not want to be considered for the NCMP seat, but it was ‘part of the procedure’ for every candidate in the team to be included for consideration in the ‘secret ballot’ by the CEC.

However, in the CEC minutes provided by the informant, the names of other two East Coast candidate Glenda Han and Mohd Fazli were NOT in the ballot:

[Source: Lianhe Zaobao]

The WP East Coast GRC team comprised of Eric Tan, Gerald Giam, Png Eng Huat, Glenda Han and Mohd Fazli. Eric Tan resigned from WP after he was sidelined by Gerald Giam for the NCMP position while Mohd Fazli left a few days after Yaw Shin Leong was expelled from the party.

Mr Png declined to comment further and said Mr Low will be addressing the issue during a WP rally in Hougang tonight.

Though Mr Png is the candidate for Hougang, he appeared to be overshadowed by Mr Low who has been doing most of the walking and talking for him.

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

Regardless of the truth, the result of the vote does reveal that Mr Png wasn’t that highly regarded within WP after all.

Lianhe Zaobao: Png Eng Huat received only one vote for NCMP position during WP CEC meeting

Posted by temasektimes on May 22, 2012

Workers Party candidate for Hougang Png Eng Huat appeared to be caught with his pants down after it was revealed that his name was indeed in the ballot to select the best losing candidate in East Coast GRC to fill the position of NCMP in parliament.

During an election speech last Sunday, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean asked if Hougang voters have been taken granted by WP by fielding Png Eng Huat, a candidate who was not even considered for the NCMP position.

This prompted a response by Mr Png who claimed he did not consider himself for the NCMP post as he was ‘against’ it.

“I actually took my name out of the ballot for the NCMP post. Because I have a personal stand against the NCMP scheme, so that’s why my name wasn’t in the ballot. So I don’t think DPM knows all of these.

However, in an email sent to Lianhe Zaobao, one WP insider revealed that contrary to what Mr Png had said, his name was on the ballot and he received only one vote for the position.

Attached below are minutes of the WP CEC meeting obtained from Lianhe Zaobao:

[Source: Lianhe Zaobao]

The minutes showed clearly that Gerald Giam obtained 7 votes, two ahead of Eric Tan and Png received only ONE pathetic vote.

The informant wrote in Chinese that he made the difficult choice to expose the Workers Party because he chose loyalty to Singapore over party allegiance:

“我以一颗下沉的心给你写这信。在我的党和新加坡之间,我必须做非常艰难的选择,但是我选择忠于我的国家,而不是已经变得刚愎自用的党。在过去的一年里,我的良心不安,看着党这些月以来所经历的,我不能选择再保持沉默。”

When contacted by the Zaobao, the Workers Party declined to comment on the issue though party Chairman Sylvia Lim said she will address it at the WP rally tonight.

In the General Election last year, WP sent Low Thia Kiang’s protege Yaw Shin Leong to contest in the ward. Yaw was the treasurer and ‘number three’ man in WP while Png only joined WP in 2008 and hold no key position in the party. In fact, Png was serving in Aljunied GRC before being ‘parachuted’ suddenly into Hougang Constituency Committee in the aftermath of Yaw’s sacking this year.

Png Eng Huat: I made a choice not to be considered for post of NCMP

Posted by temasektimes on May 22, 2012

I made a choice not to be considered for the post of Non-Constituency MP (NCMP) after last year’s General Election, said WP candidate for Hougang Mr Png Eng Huat.

Mr Png was responding to queries from Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean who asked during the PAP election rally last Sunday why it didn’t send Mr Png to parliament as an NCMP when it had a chance to do so.

DPM Teo also wondered if WP is taking Hougang voters for granted by fielding Mr Png who was not given the much coveted NCMP post.

Mr Png contested in last year’s General Election in East Coast GRC where his team garnered 45 percent of the valid votes. The  NCMP position eventually goes to rookie Gerald Giam which prompted its team leader Eric Tan to quit the party in disgust.

The Elections Department had offered three NCMP seats to the best losing opposition candidates in last year’s GE.

In an interview with Channel News Asia, Mr Png said:

“I actually took my name out of the ballot for the NCMP post. Because I have a personal stand against the NCMP scheme, so that’s why my name wasn’t in the ballot. So I don’t think DPM knows all of these.

However, according to a WP insider who spoke to us on the condition of anonymity, the ‘ballot’ was a farce as certain ‘big shots’ in WP had already decided on Gerald Giam.

“If a vote was indeed called, Eric Tan would surely win because he was a senior leader who laid the groundwork for East Coast. But the two leaders favored Gerald and others simply went along. In WP, there are some leaders who you cannot offend or you will be put in ‘cold storage’ forever,” he said.

Mr Png was working the ground in East Coast only in 2011 before being transferred to Aljunied GRC after the election. After Yaw Shin Leong was sacked in February, he was ‘parachuted’ into Hougang Constituency Committee by WP Chief Low Thia Kiang.

Young Hougang voters growing disillusioned with Workers Party?

Posted by temasektimes on May 21, 2012

Hougang may be the impregnable ‘fortress’ of the Workers Party for the past twenty years, but the betrayal by its ex-WP MP Yaw Shin Leong has caused some young Hougang voters to wonder if they should still support the party.

The seat of Hougang was left vacant after Yaw was sacked by WP for his failure to address swirling rumors about his alleged extramarital affairs with multiple married women, including two key WP female leaders.

During a WP rally last Saturday, WP leaders exhorted Hougang residents to continue to support WP to preserve the ‘bastion’ of democracy in Singapore as if Hougang is its ‘property’.

With WP already having 7 MPs in Parliament including two NCMPs, there is no longer any overriding ‘pressure’ for Hougang residents to vote for WP to ensure an opposition presence in parliament, as evident by some comments left by young Hougang voters on the Facebook of PAP candidate for Hougang Mr Desmond Choo.

Former WP supporter Christina Lee regretted voting for WP in the last election:

“Wasted my votes in the past but now wake up liao. Ya they voice in Parliament but no solutions. Object object object no solutions how to lead our country?? Later we become like Greece OR 3rd world country HOW???”

Another Hougang resident Issac Lau asked what has WP done for Hougang:

“What had wp done for hougang? so wayang. only lim kopi with residents, attend wakes and funnerals. always cry father cry mother, but never give any good suggestions. like to complain pap never give them funds. your father never give you pocket money, dont know how to go and find yourself izit? so lazy!”

One long-staying resident of Hougang Marcus Chong asked WP why Hougang residents must continue to ‘sacrifice’ for WP after twenty over years:

“后港人民以经为工人党牺牲了二十多年,为什么还要我们后港人继续为工人党牺牲下去? 为什么定要我们小小的一个后港为你争取民主?除非你工人党国会里七八个议员全部是无能的?! GE2011 你骗了我们 ,2012二月你耍了我们,BE2012你又耍来哄我们,后港人不昰傻子,呆孑,小孩子!”

One Hougang resident Kenny Ong was even estranged from his relatives in Hougang because of his support for Mr Choo:

“As much as it will be a uphill battle to take over Hougang from WP’s hands, we all know what you have done.  In fact my relatives in HG who ate staunched WP supporters are turning against me for my 101% support for you & PAP. It doesn’t matter to me at all, as long as we all know you are trying your best. If you still lose this election, it is clear to all that no matter what you do in the next 10 years won’t change abit. CHOOse Desmond, Dispose the rusty Hammer (20years without Handling Hougang with a well polished Hammer)”

Despite growing disaffection among young Hougang voters against the Workers Party, their views are not aired in pro-WP media outlets and blogs such as Yahoo News which has been actively campaigning for WP in influence the outcome of the by-election.

WP supporters are so confident of a ‘resounding’ victory this Saturday that many have already popped the champagne to celebrate with some predicting WP will win by a much ‘bigger’ margin this time to kick Mr Choo’s ‘sorry ass’ out of Hougang forever.

The air of confidence and arrogance displayed by WP leaders was acknowledged by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who told the media:

“The Workers’ Party is very confident, and as (Deputy Prime Minister) Tharman (Shanmugaratnam) says, ‘super-confident’ about their chances here; they’ve been in this ward for a long time – Low Thia Khiang personally was here for 20 plus years, but he’s not here anymore.”

Desmond Choo: I did not use taxpayers’ monies to fund my social welfare projects in Hougang

Posted by temasektimes on May 21, 2012

PAP candidate for Hougang by-election Desmond Choo (pic left, source: Facebook) has responded to wild accusations hurled at him by WP Chief Low Thia Kiang during an election rally last Saturday.

Mr Low had earlier accused Mr Choo of using taxpayers’ monies to fund his numerous social welfare projects in Hougang which were initiated by him since last year.

“No matter how many welfare packages rolled out by him (Desmond Choo) to win your votes, the question is: Where did the money come from,” Mr Low thundered.

(他在后港区补选工人党的首场群众大会中说,不论朱倍庆以提供多少福利配套来换取选票,一个基本的问题是:“钱从哪里来?”)

He added callously that Mr Choo is using taxpayers’ monies to paste ‘gold’ on his face:

“Is the money from his pocket? Or from the PAP community fund?….Choo Pey Ching is using your money to paste ‘gold’ on his face!”

(“是从他的口袋吗?是从行动党的基金吗? ….朱倍庆是拿你的钱,往自己脸上贴金!”)

In response, Mr Choo said he respects Mr Low who is many years his ‘senior’ and explained that the he did not use a single cent of public monies to fund his projects.

“It is not easy to find the money and it did not drop down from the sky. We have to raise it painstakingly from donors, sponsors and private enterprises.”

(“钱并不易找,也不是从天上掉下来的,而是我们辛勤地从许多私人捐款者、赞助商和企业身上募捐而来的。”)

Mr Choo added that he has been working the ground in Hougang for the past one year unlike his WP opponent Png Eng Huat who was ‘transferred’ to Hougang from Aljunied GRC after Yaw was expelled from WP for his failure to address rumors swirling around his alleged extramarital affairs with multiple married women, including two key WP female leaders.

Despite the ferocious attacks launched against him by WP leaders one after another, Mr Choo remained calm and did not retaliate in kind.

There are no immediate comments from Mr Low or other WP leaders on Mr Choo’s clarification.

DPM Teo asked Hougang voters if WP is taking them for granted

Posted by temasektimes on May 21, 2012

Speaking at the PAP’s first election rally last night, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean asked Hougang voters if they have been taken for a ride by the Workers’ Party over its handling of the Yaw Shin Leong sex scandal.

Ex-Hougang MP Yaw Shin Leong was sacked by WP in February this year for his failure to address swirling rumors around his alleged extramarital affairs with multiple married women, including two key female leaders, triggering a by-election to be called in Hougang less than a year later.

However, WP has yet to give a full account of what happened to Hougang residents and DPM Teo described WP Chief Low Thia Kiang as acting as if “nothing has happened” and is “pulling on the emotions” of voters.

“Hougang residents should consider carefully, and not just accept any candidate that WP is sending to them. You have scrutinised Desmond Choo very carefully. Scrutinise the candidate that they send to you very closely as well,” DPM Teo said.

DPM Teo also took a jibe at WP’s candidate for the by-election Png Eng Huat asking why WP did not nominate him as a NCMP in Parliament and chose his younger counterpart in the East Coast GRC team Gerald Giam instead.

“If he was their best man, why didn’t they choose him? Is Hougang so special, that the WP is sending you a candidate that they themselves decided not to send to Parliament, when they had the chance?” DPM Teo asked.

Low Thia Kiang launched blistering attack on Desmond Choo: He took your money to put ‘gold’ on his face!

Posted by temasektimes on May 20, 2012

WP Chief and veteran opposition leader Low Thia Kiang has launched a blistering attack on the PAP candidate for Hougang Desmond Choo (pic left, source: Facebook), more than twenty years his junior at a WP rally in Hougang last night.

Though he lost the election to Mr Low’s protege Yaw Shin Leong last year, Mr Choo continues to stay on in Hougang and has started a few initiatives for its residents in the past one year or so, including setting up a job hub and legal clinic.

However, Mr Low dismissed his efforts and accused him of using taxpayers’ monies to win votes.

“No matter how many welfare packages rolled out by him (Desmond Choo) to win your votes, the question is: Where did the money come from,” Mr Low thundered.

(他在后港区补选工人党的首场群众大会中说,不论朱倍庆以提供多少福利配套来换取选票,一个基本的问题是:“钱从哪里来?”)

He added callously that Mr Choo is using taxpayers’ monies to paste ‘gold’ on his face:

“Is the money from his pocket? Or from the PAP community fund?….Choo Pey Ching is using your money to paste ‘gold’ on his face!”

(“是从他的口袋吗?是从行动党的基金吗? ….朱倍庆是拿你的钱,往自己脸上贴金!”)

However, Mr Choo had earlier clarified that he did not use a single cent of taxpayers’ monies for his social welfare projects in Hougang, all of which are tied up with external agencies like NTUC, Tian Fu Temple and the Criminal Association of Singapore.

Despite the best efforts of Mr Choo, many political pundits have dismissed his chances including political analysts Derek Da Cunha and Eugene Tan with the pro-WP Yahoo News predicting an ‘easy’ victory for WP.

Even Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong admitted that Mr Choo is an ‘underdog’ in the by-election:

“The Workers’ Party is very confident, and as (Deputy Prime Minister) Tharman (Shanmugaratnam) says, ‘super-confident’ about their chances here; they’ve been in this ward for a long time – Low Thia Khiang personally was here for 20 plus years, but he’s not here anymore.”

PAP Rally this evening at:

7:00pm at Hougang Stadium, 100 Hougang Ave. 2 S538856
