[SINGAPORE] Singapore People's Party (SPP) candidate Lina Chiam has questioned the presence of posters featuring Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Potong Pasir estate, where she is contesting, asking for them to be removed.

"I don't feel threatened, but I think it goes against the essence of the election," she said on Wednesday. "In Potong Pasir there are two of us contesting: Sitoh (Yih Pin) and me. It's only right that (posters of) the two candidates... should be shown because it will be rather confusing for the residents to think that the PM is above everything." Mr Sitoh Yih Pin is the People's Action Party (PAP) candidate defending the single seat, which he had won in the previous polls in 2011.
