Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean came out early this morning to endorse PAP candidate Koh Poh Koon as a man with a comprehensive plan for Punggol East and who will get it done.

He said: "I hope that residents will compare what Poh Koon has to offer together with what other candidates can offer."

He was speaking to reporters with Dr Koh by his side, holding a flier that listed the candidate's plans for the ward. They include expanding or adding new childcare centres, setting up integrated eldercare facilities and a job placement centre.

Mr Teo also said he looked forward to working with Dr Koh as "one big Pasir Ris-Punggol", developing projects together. Earlier, they welcomed children going to a kindergarten.
