Court Hearing on Marsiling-Yew Tee By-Election Changed to 22 Jan

The court hearing for Dr Wong Souk Yee’s application for a court declaration for a by-election to be held at the Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC has been switched to 22 January 2018. The date was originally fixed for 15 January.

With Mdm Halimah Yacob, formerly a Marsiling-Yew Tee MP, vacating her seat to become the President, it behooves the government to hold an election to replace her.

The SDP and Dr Wong, one of SDP’s candidates at the GRC in the last GE and Assistant Treasurer of the party, had initiated the action.

However, the Attorney-General Chambers objected to SDP being a party to the action as it said that SDP had no official standing in the case.

In order not to complicate the matter and hold up the process, the SDP agreed to withdraw from the suit. This leaves Dr Wong as the sole applicant.

There is one concern, however. The case may be heard behind closed doors.

Dr Wong’s counsel, Peter Low & Choo LLC, attended a pre-trial conference this morning and has notified the court and the AGC that it will apply on the hearing day itself for the matter to be heard in open court. The AGC has said that it is unlikely to object.

    If AH GRC has one MP dropped out, would government insist of calling a by-election? Think we all know the answer.

  • pap selected INDIAN president:

    what did lky grandson say about pap courts?

    why is clown nephew being pursued by agc in USA?

    even so, it is our right as citizen to fight pap in pap courts. heaven has eyes. sooner or later true justice prevails.

    did anyone ever think suharto would need to resign? but he did.

    did anyone ever think gadafi sadam and such would ever fall? but they did.

    look at iran NOW. when citizens are pushed to the corner, true justice takes place.

    so we never give up. even if fight is with pap in pap courts. sooner or later the lying one must meet true justice. a matter of timing. we have lived long enough to say it is always so. NEVER a matter of never. ALWAYS of matter of timing, a matter of sooner or later.

    WE hope it is sooner. OTHERWISE how to punish the wrong doers when they are already departed like pap evil lky?

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    when ic says INDIAN, how can it be malay? if so want to be malay, why not list malay in ic and solve all the problems? BECAUSE pap forgot although they can plan it is ultimately WHO dispenses. liars no escape. all 80+ pap Ljs and pap Cbs in parleement today are all culpable for the lie.

    Wish Dr. Wong the very best in this case. Let Yew Tee-Marsiling residents have the chance to select their MPs. I am sure they don’t want the temp. fake MP.

    The court should also grant this opportunity for PAP to prove to Singaporeans that PAP is infallible.

    PAP should not be worried. This GRC is just next of Bukit Batok, with almost the same demography, so the result could be like Bukit Batok or maybe even better.

    PAP or PM LHL, you got the ball or not?

    Seriously, what is the cause to delay by-election? PAP will still be the winner anyway. However, precautionary measures must still be in place just incase the voters decided to have Happy New Year.

  • Change We Must:

    This is a very clear case that Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC need to go for by-election since a GRC is created to have at least a minority. A GRC without a minority is flaw, then why create GRC for? The government might have some tricks up to their sleeves again, by-election has to be conducted for this ward. Please don’t waste tax payer money to flip flop and try to get away with it again.
