Feb 13, 2022 | 🚀 Fathership AI
Former Workers’ Party (WP) chief Low Thia Khiang said it's up to the residents to ask him if he is coming back to politics.

It was Low's first comments to the media after a parliamentary committee released an extensive report on Thursday (Feb 10), recommending sanctions for former WP MP Raeesah Khan and party leaders Pritam Singh and Faisal Manap for their roles in lies Ms Khan told in Parliament.

Low: "Up to residents"

On whether he would come out of retirement to steer the WP through its current trouble, Low said he would respond to residents should they ask him to do so.

Speaking to Chinese-language publication Shin Min Daily News on Friday (Feb 11), the former Aljunied GRC MP said: "It's up to the residents to ask me, and I'll tell them more. In fact, everyone is very concerned. (But) there are many talents in the Workers' Party, so there is no need to worry."

According to a source within WP speaking in confidence to Fathership, preparations were already underway as early as October 2021 for Low to make a comeback.

Pritam Singh may lose seat in Parliament

In a Facebook post shortly after the report was issued on Thursday, Pritam Singh had raised the prospect of him and Faisal Manap - both Aljunied GRC MPs - losing their seats in Parliament, should they be fined $2,000 or more.

Pritam, who was formally designated as the Leader of the Opposition after the 2020 General Election, said that until the resolution of these matters, he and Faisal will continue their constituency work as per normal.

Pritam, Faisal and party chairman Sylvia Lim are expected to speak more on the committee's report on Tuesday (Feb 15), when Parliament debates it and MPs vote on whether to accept the recommendations.
