[SINGAPORE] A three-cornered fight is brewing at Bukit Batok Single Member Constituency, with independent candidate Samir Salim Neji, a managing director of software firm Anaplan Asia, joining the fight between PAP incumbent David Ong and Singapore Democratic Party candidate Sadasivam Veriyah, reported Channel News Asia.
