Update: PPP Goh Meng Seng has failed to defuse the three-corner fight in Potong Pasir SMC.

Independent candidate lawyer Tan Lam Siong announced that he will give up contesting in a 3-corner fight with Potong Pasir SMC and join the People’s Power Party (PPP) to contest in Chua Chu Kang GRC.

Coincidentally, the former secretary general for the National Solidarity Party (NSP) is joining another former NSP sec-gen, Goh Meng Seng, who created his own political party PPP this year.

The good news is Singapore People’s Party NCMP Lina Chiam will have a direct contest with a weak PAP candidate Seetoh Yih Pin over Potong Pasir SMC. In the last election, NCMP Lina Chiam lost by only 114 votes and she is poised to win Potong Pasir SMC given the increasingly bitterness of ground sentiments against the ruling PAP party.
