Punggol East SMC up for grabs
Would there be a by election in Punggol East with Michael Palmers’ resignation? I think so, and many also think so. What do you think?
The opposition parties would be having a pow wow now on who should have the right to contest this seat. I couldn’t remember who fought against him the last time. If I am not mistaken it was a 3 corner fight with Lee Li Lian from WP and Desmond Lim the third candidate from SDA. These two parties should have priority or the first right of refusal to fight the seat one more time. This seems to be the guiding principle among the opposition parties and may help to defuse a power struggle and bad blood from spilling.
Punggol East is near to Low Thia Khiang’s stronghold of Hougang and Aljunied. Is it going to be another PAP versu WP fight and SDA again? Or would it be a two party fight?
