In a humourous response to Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong’s scathing attacks about the Workers’ Party, Workers’ Party candidate for Marine Parade GRC said that residents living in different parts of the GRC also feel like nomads because of the ruling party’s gerrymandering antic:
“I am not sure when contesting in an election in a country that is based on democratic principles is being arrogant. It is for voters to decide and it is our duty to provide a choice for them, as best as we can.
As to “nomads”, I recall the many visits to different parts of Marine Parade GRC, such as Eunos, Joo Chiat, Kembangan, Chai Chee, Ubi and Braddell. Some residents recall how they were in a different GRC (some even in now-defunct GRCs) or were a SMC previously. I think some even described themselves as nomads, moving constituencies without moving their actual house.
Uniquely Singapore. #youwinliaolor”
