The Singapore People’s Party (SPP) today (Jun 20) held a walkabout in the Mountbatten neighbourhood along Singapore’s east coast.
SPP member Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss also handed out a flyer in which she stated: “I want to serve you to the best of my ability; your concerns are my concerns. This is why I am walking the ground in Mountbatten SMC, and this is why I visited your home today.”
Among the issues she said she wanted to hear residents’ thoughts on were housing, education, healthcare, employment and community facilities.
Ms Chong-Aruldoss, a lawyer by trade, was the former Secretary-General of the National Solidarity Party (NSP). She ran in the 2011 General Election in Mountbatten under the NSP banner, but was defeated by the People’s Action Party candidate Lim Biow Chuan after getting about 41 per cent of the votes. She joined the SPP this year.
Singapore must hold its next parliamentary General Election by January 2017
