So MP Michael Palmer has had to resign for his extramarital affair. If the PM does call an election next year, my choice of candidate would be Nicole Seah.
First, she’s intelligent, eloquent, beautiful and passionate about serving the people.
Second, I think she’s more popular than any other ‘opp’ candidate at this time.
Third, I think she’s a breath of fresh air, it’s good for the people to see what NSP can offer, rather than keep going back to WP.
But the spanner in the works has got to be Dr Chee. If he runs, I think all hell will break loose from the PAP machinery.
Notwithstanding the above, what if WP wins the by-election? Will it be forced to give up one of its ncmp seats? The Constitution says ncmps are just there to make up the numbers, in case less than 9 opp mp’s are elected. But if wp wins, there’ll be 10 opp mp’s in total. Would the Constitution require the removal of the lowest scoring ncmp?
