S’poreans agree with DPM Teo: Electoral boundary changes affect Minister Lui Tuck Yew the most

Poor Minister Lui Tuck Yew.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who have the well-being of others in their hearts, have come out to agree with Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

This after DPM Teo said electoral boundary changes affect the incumbent the most, a response he gave after there were accusations that Joo Chiat SMC — which the People’s Action Party almost lost to the Workers’ Party in the 2011 General Election — and Moulmein-Kallang GRC were scrapped to better PAP’s chances at the polls.

One Singaporean, Jiang Fei Hua, said he agrees with DPM Teo and that Minister Lui Tuck Yew is the most affected: “Poor Minister Lui Tuck Yew. From a minister at Moulmein-Kallang to a minister with no constituency. So poor thing.”

“Overnight, Minister Lui went from a minister who could lose an entire GRC to a minister who doesn’t even belong to a GRC.”

“Therefore, there is no doubt DPM Teo is right to say that electoral boundary changes affect the incumbent the most.”

Another local, Gong Jiao Wei, said he also agrees electoral boundary changes will have the most impact on the PAP: “Poor PAP MP Charles Chong at Joo Chiat. From being able to lose one SMC to Workers’ Party to not even having an SMC to lose.”

“So changes. Much affect.”
