Hougang By-election, At the Workers’ Party press conference last month to announce Mr Yaw Shin Leong’s expulsion were (from left) Mr Gerald Giam, Mr Low Thia Khiang, Ms Sylvia Lim and Mr Pritam Singh. The Constitution makes clear that a by-election to fill a vacant seat is not optional, said party leaders Mr Low and Ms Lim on Wednesday
The Workers’ Party (WP) has asked the Government to call a by-election in Hougang ‘as soon as practicable’ because it is compulsory by law to hold one, it said.
The Constitution makes clear that a by-election to fill a vacant seat is not optional, said party leaders Low Thia Khiang and Sylvia Lim on Wednesday in their strongest comments on the issue yet.
‘It is a wrong perception… to say whether or not there should be a by-election. Actually, that is not a question,’ Mr Low told The Straits Times last night.
