Three new people get leadership positions in Workers’ Party

The Workers' Party inducted three new people into its Central Executive Council on Tuesday (Oct 6) during its monthly meeting.

It was the council's first meeting since last month's general election.

Mr Mohamed Fairoz Shariff, 36, was appointed as webmaster and a member of the media team. The former librarian was a candidate for East Coast GRC. The team polled 39.27 per cent of votes compared to People's Action Party's 60.73 per cent.

Mr Leon Perera, 45, was also appointed a member of the media team. The CEO of an international research consultancy was also a candidate for East Coast GRC in the election last month. He is now a non-constituency Member of Parliament.

Mr Kenneth​ Foo Seck Guan, 38, was appointed Deputy Organising Secretary to assist Mr Pritam Singh and Ms Lee Li Lian. He was part of a team that contested in Nee Soon GRC and lost.

There were also a few changes involving current CEC members.

Dr Daniel Goh was appointed chairman of the media team, with Mr Gerald Giam as vice-chairman. Party chairman, Ms Sylvia Lim, was also appointed a member of the media team.

The party said in a statement on its website that the "changes in appointments are meant to strengthen the CEC to meet the expanded scope of leadership work".
