SINGAPORE -THE PAP team in Tanjong Pagar GRC led by Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing will include two new faces: Mr Alvin Tan, 39, LinkedIn's Asia-Pacific head of public policy and economics, and former public servant Eric Chua, 41.

Mr Melvin Yong leaves Tanjong Pagar GRC to contest solo in nearby Radin Mas SMC, taking over from Minister of State Sam Tan, who is retiring after holding the ward for the ruling party for three terms, since 2006.

Dr Chia Shi Lu, who has served as an MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC since 2011, is stepping down after two terms as a backbencher.

Asked about the coming contest against PSP, Mr Chan said the PAP team was "Focused on taking care of our residents".

After the video conference, the five Tanjong Pagar GRC candidates visited a coffee shop in Bukit Merah, within the GRC's Henderson-Dawson ward.
