GE2015: PAP's Khaw seeks support for plans; NSP wants to be people's "voice"

[SINGAPORE] The hot burning sun did not dampen the festive spirit of hundreds of party supporters waiting patiently in the central foyer of Yishun Primary School, the nomination centre for the Sembawang, Nee Soon and Marsiling-Yew Tee GRCs. A vast majority of them were sporting the People's Action Party (PAP) colours while the Workers Party was the best represented opposition party.

When Spencer Ng, organising secretary of the National Solidarity Party (NSP) came out on the school balcony with his team which will contest the Sembawang GRC in a straight fight with PAP, he was greeted with loud but good natured shouts of "PAP, PAP…"

"We said we will be here and we are here. NSP is honoured to be able to contest in Sembawang GRC to fight for you, to voice out for you and to represent you in Parliament," Mr Ng said. He appealed to the electorate to vote wisely as it was "their only chance to hold the incumbents responsible for all the policies implemented". He added: "It is also your only chance over the next five years to determine what kind of Singapore you want."

After the NSP spoke, Minister for National Development, Khaw Boon Wan, led out the PAP team amid thunderous applause from the crowd. He thanked the electorate for their support during the last elections and added that the PAP delivered on all the plans for Woodlands, Sembawang and Yishun.

"We have come to the residents for our next five year plans which will make Woodlands, Sembawang and Yishun even better than today. Please support us so that we can convert these plans into reality for you and your children," Mr Khaw added.
