WP post-election press conference
Mr Low Thia Khiang delivers a surprisingly hard-hitting post-election press conference, in which he hits out at the government for denying Hougang residents estate upgrading for the past 21 years, contrary to PM Lee’s assertion that his government aims to build an inclusive society. He said that we should build a first world society, not just a first world economy.
Mr Low pointed out there had been several calculated moves to discredit the WP candidate and attack the party, similar to tactics he has witnessed in the 1980’s and 1990’s. He said that this by-election has been characterized by baseless attacks, distractions, and character assassination. He also criticized the mainstream media for being once again a political tool of the PAP.
Mr Low gave his assurance that Mr Png Eng Huat will be a caring MP, and will serve residents to the best of his ability.
