Minister for Social and Family Development Tan Chuan-Jin will be the anchor minister at Marine Parade GRC in the upcoming election, he announced on Saturday evening (Aug 15) at the sidelines of a Hari Raya celebration event.
Mr Tan said this means he will be “playing a leading role” within a team, adding that ESM Goh Chok Tong will continue to run in Marine Parade GRC for the upcoming election.
“We will continue leveraging on his experience. He’s much loved and respected by many of the residents in Marine Parade and Marine Parade GRC, and I would say many Singaporeans as well,” Mr Tan said. “We will discuss issues together and I think we operate very much as a team, and I don’t see that changing.”
ESM Goh Chok Tong had on Friday announced that he will be standing for election in Marine Parade GRC, where he has been an MP for close to 40 years.
