Workers' Party's Mr Png Eng Huat (above) and People's Action Party's Mr Desmond Choo (below) were yesterday named as their respective parties' candidates for the Hougang by-election.

WP secretary-general Low Thia Khiang called Mr Png, 50, a semi-retired businessman and WP's deputy webmaster, a 'mature candidate' that Hougang residents need because he can connect well with the ground.

PAP's Mr Choo, 34, a deputy director with the Industrial Relations Unit at National Trades Union Congress, said that he thought it an honour to be fielded again although he lost in the General Election last year.
