Not given NCMP seat, so Eric Tan quits Workers' Party

WP decides to give seat to rookie Gerald Giam

SINGAPORE - With an eye on the next General Election, the Workers' Party's top leadership last night made a strategic decision to select a younger member for its second Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) seat.

Unfortunately, the move prompted veteran central executive committee member and party treasurer Eric Tan to quit.

In an exclusive interview with Today late last night, as he drafted a statement for the media, he said: "I feel betrayed."

The WP is expected to officially announce which of its candidates will be accepting the NCMP seats today.

The WP is entitled to two NCMP seats - one for Mr Yee Jenn Jong, 46, who lost narrowly in the single-seat of Joo Chiat and the other for one of the five members of its East Coast GRC team.

Last night's meeting at Hougang Town Council saw the WP's central executive committee vote to hand the second NCMP seat to the party's assistant webmaster, 34-year-old Gerald Giam.


Do you agree that Mr Gerald Giam should be NCMP instead of Eric Tan? What are your views and reasons for your views?
