Veteran opposition leader Chiam See Tong and his wife Lina have retained their leadership positions in the Singapore People's Party (SPP) after a party election on Friday.

Mr Chiam, 78, and Mrs Chiam, 65, who is a Non-Constituency Member of Parliament, remain the secretary-general and chairman of the party respectively.

The election comes about three weeks after the party chose a new 10-member central executive committee (CEC), its top decision-making body.

Among the 10 were four new faces, including an accountant, a former teacher and a non-governmental organisation adviser.
