I wonder who will be running in this by-election... Ie, WP vs PAP vs NSP vs SDP vs RP vs SPP vs Independent??

Would be interesting to watch.

On a side note, do we get an extra public holiday? *grin grin*

hopefully no other opposition parties come dilute the votes..
though the support for WP should be still quite strong

more interested in who they will field

yep

YSL was voted in under the WP banner
once he leaves the party, he is no longer the MP of hougang
and a by election has to be called

Yes, by-election must be held. LTK also mentioned it already

Let's have some fun!

The following are potential candidates from the various quarters to come and contest :

YSL

GY

CST

NS

TJS ? TKL ? TCB ?

Desmond Choo PAP.

I hope NS will really join in the fight. Don't think she can speak teochew though.

u r correct on d 1st part.
But a by election need not necessarily be called once an MP leaves his seat for whatever reasons during his term.

I posted dis in another thread:
Gahman not obliged to.
If my recollection is correct, after JBJ lost his Anson seat in 1986
after being made a bankrupt fr defamation suits,
a byelection was not called.

Anson was simply covered by MIW advisor n grassroots n subsequently absorbed into TP GRC.
Fortunately HG can be covered by AL GRC team.

Would MIW seize dis opportunity to give their man (Desmond Choo?) more prominence
n gain more ground by not calling a byelection?
I think it wld raise a stink.


Other instances off-hand when no by elections were called.
MIW MP in Jalan Besar GRC - court case; MIW MP in West Coast GRC - died.
