Punggol East By Election


People, Places, Politics 8 Comments

PM Lee announced that the by-election for Punggol East will be held on 26 Jan 2013. Mr Lee said even though he has been busy with national issues, he has decided to hold a by-election to give Punggol East residents their own MP in Parliament, before returning back to refocus on national issues. It was rumored that PAP Activists were stockpiling plywood that is mainly used for election posters ahead of the announcements. The By-Election was eventually won by the opposition, Workers Party, with a deciding 60% majority.

Mr Michael Palmer resigned as MP of Punggol East and Speaker of Parliament on 12 Dec 2012 over an extramarital affair he had with a female staff by the name of Ms Laura Ong from the People’s Association.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!
