SINGAPORE: While she has been campaigning at a ward with many elderly people, age has not been an issue, said Nadia Samdin, the youngest of the People's Action Party's candidates in this General Election.

The 30-year-old is one of the new faces running alongside Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the Ang Mo Kio GRC. If elected, she will oversee the Cheng San-Seletar ward, which is home to many elderly residents.

When some elderly residents stood up from their seats to greet the candidates, Ms Nadia was heard saying "You don't need to stand up" in Mandarin.

Having PM Lee as a fellow candidate, she said, means there is "Added responsibility somewhat to do right residents".

Mr Lee leads a team comprising Mr Darryl David, Mr Gan Thiam Poh as well as new faces Ms Nadia and Ms Ng Ling Ling.
