[SINGAPORE] The Workers' Party (WP)'s candidate Daniel Goh has accepted the landslide victory in favour of the People's Action Party (PAP) as a "ringing endorsement" of the ruling party.

The National University of Singapore sociology associate professor said in a Facebook post on Saturday that the results - the PAP won 83 of 89 seats contested, and 69.9 per cent of total votes - bore clear meaning. "The people has spoken and the collective wisdom is always right," he said, noting that he was at peace when he found out that his team had lost. He was part of the four-man WP team contesting East Coast GRC, losing to the PAP team led by Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say which had 60.7 per cent of the vote.
