Lee Li Lian wins the Punggol East by-election


This photo shows the newly-elected Member of Parliament for Punggol East, Lee Li Lian and on the right is Sylvia Lim, the Worker’s Party chairperson. Lee Li Lian won the electorate with 16,038 votes. The PAP incumbent Koh Poh Koon, garnered 12,856 votes. The other two minority candidates, namely Kenneth Jeyaretnam of the Reform Party got only 353 votes and finally, Desmond Lim of the Singapore Democratic Alliance won only 168 votes.

This vote for the Workers Party shows that people want a stronger alternative voice in Parliament. Don’t follow leaders, watch the parking meters.
