GE: PKMS Warns Members Against Contesting In Tanjong Pagar GRC

26 Apr

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Malay National Organisation (PKMS), a component party of the Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA), on Tuesday warned it would expel any member who submit nomination to contest in Tanjong Pagar GRC.

The party stressed that it would not endorse any member contesting in Tanjong Pagar GRC – be it as an Independent Candidate or as a member of another party.

The latest comments come a day after one of its members – Abdul Malik Mohammed Ghazali – issued an unauthorised media statement on behalf of the opposition team, who had intended to contest in Tanjong Pagar GRC.

The statement said the opposition, which includes members from SDA and PKMS Secretary-General Nazem Suki, was unable to contest in Tanjong Pagar GRC due to a shortage of funds.

The SDA clarified that it was not an issue of funds but a matter of accountability.

It said the main reason the SDA is not contesting in the ward is because it does not want to appear as a party which only wants to contest for the sake of doing so.
