“Arrogant prick” Ivan Lim Shaw Chuan has been kicked out of his candidacy from the ruling party PAP, confirmed the party press release.
The ruling party PAP lied that Ivan Lim sent in a request to withdraw, right after he said he is “determined to stay the course”.
According to a PAP cadre, many ministers expressed concerns that Ivan Lim’s reputation will smear the party’s chances in this election which is already “the hardest poll PAP ever had”. A replacement candidate from the Singapore Armed Force has agreed to take over Ivan Lim’s candidacy at Tanjong Pagar GRC.
The General Manager of Keppel Offshore & Marine first appeared a week ago shortly after the elections was called. His candidacy at Tanjong Pagar GRC was then met with severe opposition from numerous ex-colleagues, ex-subordinates, ex-classmates and even former neighbours.
All the negative comments testified that Ivan Lim is an arrogant prick who is not fit for politics. The PAP candidate denied all allegations against him through the ruling party press release earlier today, but he was unable to find anyone to speak up for him either.
The Ivan Lim saga dealt another huge blow to the ruling party PAP, which is already struggling with unpopularity due to the coronavirus outbreak fiasco, recession and the sudden resignation of Goh Chok Tong.
