Singapore GE2020: PSP 'coming home' to West Coast, not new to area, says Tan Cheng Bock

Jun 29, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
The Progress Singapore Party may be a new party but it is not new to West Coast GRC, said chief Tan Cheng Bock, saying that he was responsible for a lot of the development in the constituency when he was the People's Action Party MP for Ayer Rajah.

The constituency was merged with West Coast GRC in 2006.

Mr Iswaran, the minister leading the PAP's West Coast GRC team, was first elected MP in West Coast GRC in 1997 and has been in the constituency since.

During his visit yesterday, Dr Tan was accompanied by fellow party members, including assistant secretary-general Leong Mun Wai and Mr Lee Hsien Yang, the brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Dr Tan added: "Frankly speaking, when Hsien Yang came to see me, I was very clear about this. And he understands our position, because there's always a fear that Hsien Yang is going to come to my party and talk about his agenda."
