GE2020: PAP announces Tanjong Pagar, Radin Mas line-up; no Chia Shi-Lu, Sam Tan

Jun 29, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
Absent from PAP's Tanjong Pagar and Radin Mas 2015 slate respectively are two-term backbencher Chia Shi-Lu and Minister of State for Social and Family Development and Foreign Affairs Sam Tan, both of whom will step down.

The PAP won in Tanjong Pagar with a walkover that year.

In 2015, the PAP ran against the Singaporeans First party in Tanjong Pagar and won with 78 per cent of the vote.

Tanjong Pagar is considered a PAP stronghold, with former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew running there in every election from 1955 to 2011.

Mr Chan Chun Sing said on Friday that the PAP welcomes "Other people to come and stand", when asked about the possibility of Mr Lee Hsien Yang running in Tanjong Pagar.
