IT HAS not been a happy new year so far for the Workers' Party MP for Hougang, Mr Yaw Shin Leong, who has become the subject of a raging online firestorm.
Yesterday, WP's secretary-general Low Thia Khiang came forward to refute claims made by the PA's grassroots leaders that the Hougang Town Council (HTC) had been restricting their access to space for years.
Hot on the heels of its impressive showing at last week's General Elections, the Workers' Party (WP) has hit a speed bump over its Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) decision.
The Workers' Party made history when they broke into a Group Representation Constituency (GRC) for the first time since the system was introduced in 1988.
How do the residents of Aljunied GRC feel about the new team representing them?
