WP missed the National Day Rally for their own SG50 celebration Dinner

National day rally? I think not.

The Members of Parliment (MP) from the Worker’s Party (WP) skipped yesterday’s (23 August) National Day Rally (NDR) by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

All of the WP’s representatives in Parliament — Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim Swee Lian, Chen Show Mao, Yee Jenn Jong, Muhammad Faisal Bin Abdul Manap, Pritam Singh, Gerald Giam Yean Song, Png Eng Huat, Lee Li Lian — attended WP’s SG50 celebration dinner instead.

The event was organized by WP Grassroots Committee (WPGC), and was held at Block 814 Hougang Central. Tickets were sold at $45, and 1,800 residents turned up for the dinner to mingle with their MPs and miss the NDR.

Hougang SMC’s Png Eng Huat even put up a special performance for those who attended the dinner.

Looks like PAP doesn’t have a monopoly on guitar-wielding Ministers.

At the end of the night, Ms Sylvia Lim Swee Lian gave a heart-warming toast to Singapore’s progress in the 50 years of independence and hopes for more democratic nation in the future.

“May she enjoy 50 more years of security and peace, and journey towards being a more democratic country.”

Sylvia Lim
