SINGAPORE: Banking executive Yee Chia Hsing is joining the People's Action Party team in the 4-member Chua Chu Kang Group Representation Constituency (GRC) for the coming General Election, while MP Alvin Yeo will be retiring from politics.

He was introduced to the media together with MPs Gan Kim Yong, Low Yen Ling and Zaqy Mohamad at the PAP's Nanyang Branch in Jurong West. The GRC has been downsized from a five to four-member constituency for the coming polls.

While Mr Yeo is retiring from politics at the end of his current term, MP Alex Yam will be moved to Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC, after his Yew Tee ward was carved out from Chua Chu Kang GRC to the new Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC.

For the upcoming elections, the People's Power Party (PPP) - helmed by former NSP secretary-general Goh Meng Seng - will likely go head-to-head with the PAP team in Chua Chu Kang.
