Click to enlarge

11 August 2017

Mr Lee Hsien Loong
Prime Minister
Republic of Singapore
via email: [email protected]

Dear Prime Minister Lee,

By-election in Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC

Ms Halimah Yacob has resigned as the Member of Parliament (MP) from the Marsiling-Yew Tee Group Representation Constituency (GRC) to stand as a candidate for the Elected Presidency. As such, in accordance with our constitution, a by-election must be held in the GRC.

However, Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, said in Parliament on 6 February 2017, that there will be no by-election even if Ms Halimah resigns as MP.

As Prime Minister, we wish to hear from you if Mr Chan’s statement is indeed your own position. Please let me have your reply on this matter by the close of the business day on 16 August 2017, Wednesday, failing which we will take it that you will not be calling for a by­-election in the Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC. In that event, we shall proceed to take the necessary steps to rectify the situation.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,


Chee Soon Juan
Secretary-General
Singapore Democratic Party

    Dear Dr Chee,

    Who are you to question our Great Leader PM Lee ?

    SG is a small nation and there is no need for so many by election.

    At most you only got 300 supporters at the centre of Hong Lim Park.

    You will be abandoned just like how JBJ or Roy was abandoned.

    No one will support you.

    You will still lost even if a by election is called.

  • Titiana Ann Xavier:

    As anticipated, Dr Chee has taken the first step by writing to PM Lee to ascertain whether a by-election will be held for M-YT GRC notwithstanding the childish outburst by CCS. Once PM Lee has made his stand known, the SDP will make good its promise to take legal action or to start preparing for the hustings. This letter by Dr Chee leaves PM Lee with only two options: fight or flight; be a hero or a zero; be a man or a ball-less coward.

    Who is Chan Chun Sing to treat the Constitution and voters of Marsiling-Yew Tee like a piece of shit. He is the real piece of shit as Gen-Sec of NTUC and minister in PMO.

    And what is his justification for no by-election for MYT GRC? His shit answer is there are enough minority MPs in Parliament.

    Hope the PM or the PMO will have the courtesy to give an early reply to the SDP query.

    A by-election is required in the marshaling-yew tee constituency! This is all the more so because the minority mp chooses to resign from her job. She did not die in office and as such there is no reason not to call for a by-election.

    The election laws would be breached under the group representative constituency if the position is not filled by a by-election. Try submitting an application without a minority candidate to stand in a GRC ward during the GE! I bet your application will be thrown out and your application fee forfeited!

    In law-abiding Singapore, it is thus necessary to comply with the Rule of Law just like The Hague arbitration on the South China Sea. Not calling a by election would now mean the government has broken the law which it promulgated.

    This also means that the minority citizens of marshaling-yew tee are not served from now till 2020!

    It is only right that residents of marshiling-yew tee make a police report or a magistrate’s complaint if no by-elections is declared!

    However, as SDP will consider taking pinkie’s Government to court, as responsible citizens who observe the Rule of Law, we shall pledge $100/- (hope we can use the NS vouchers for payment to the courts) to support SDP’s legal challenge!

    Dr Chee should try hiring one of the big 4 legal firms.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Worker Party should be doing the same, ask the Prime Minister should there be a by-election in Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC?

    Whatever the reply, WP could use the same reason given by the PM, when there is a need in Aljunied GRC.

    This will be an insurance and a precedent set!!

    WP should do something. Don’t be kind to the PAP, like what LTK did in Parliament on the abuse of power by the PM. PAP would use any organ of the govt to kill WP, like what HDB doing on the Aljunied Town Council.
    WP can be kind to PAP, but PAP can be very evil towards WP.

    Harlimau
    Voters of M-YT GRC
    Opposition Parties
    Singaporeans

    It is only honest to have a By-Election at M-YT GRC unless there is a good and valid reason not to have one!

    PAP behaves like thugs do. Why I said so, because they have heavy arms, so can execute punches without any hindrances or can deceive society in any manner they like. This kind of behavior is akin to thugs behavior.

  • justacitizen:

    AS the GS of the PAP, PM Lee sent Ms Halima as a candidate for the GE. Now, the person he think most highly and capable of the office of MP has resigned. The PM of Singapore must take responsibility for his decision for selecting her which he think could and should fulfill her role, since she has abdicated before her fully completing her duty which she swear by after being elected.
    Whatever reason the PM might hide under so as not to call a BE, surely he must as a leader of a country, have the principle enough to correct his own mistake! Especially, when he selected her for representing the minority of that constituency and now there is no minority representation there.

    Come on PM, have some principle! Clean up your own mistake!

    Does being a patriot bring you wealth and food ?

    Just look at Chee. What a pathetic sight living in 3 room flat.

    He is just trying to sweet talk his way into parliament in the hope to enjoy the 16000 MP salary.

    You must be daft to believe Dr Chee sweet talk.

    They knew there is a shortage of Malay candidates, and yet they changed the Constitution for a reserved Malay president this year. Instead, an Indian female (you know who by now) from the ruling party is selected to stand as a Malay candidate ! She refuses to acknowledge she is an Indian and has forgotten her Indian roots. What more to say, hur ?

    Just google, you will see how many people attended Chee’s rallies and why he lives in a three-room flat, and many other whys. Either you have just arrived in Singapore or just bought a mobile phone and not yet see the world.

    Oi, go back to Malaysia lah…
