WP fire back on AHPETC again

SYLVIA LIM: 'PUBLIC CONFUSION' OVER AHPETC

Workers’ Party chairman Sylvia Lim rebutted accusations that it had been on the defensive after devoting most of its first rally on the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) issue.

Speaking at a walkabout yesterday morning, she said: “Because of the publicity that has been brought to bear on the town council, I think there may be some public confusion over what is happening.

We thought that it is important for us to spend some part of our first rally to explain those things, otherwise we will be accused of not being accountable again.

“Either way, we will be wrong.”


GERALD GIAM: 'VERY FEW' BRING  UP AHPETC ISSUE

“Very few” residents have brought up the Workers’ Party-run town council during the two years of house visits in East Coast GRC, said WP candidate Gerald Giam yesterday morning.

When they did bring up the topic, voters said they wished the WP had explained their side of the story more, he added.

And when they did bring up town council issues, it would be local situations like lift maintenance, he said.
