People's Action Party (PAP) MP Alex Yam arrived at the Elections Department in the late afternoon on Friday, capping a busy day at Prinsep Street.
The Chua Chu Kang GRC MP arrived at about 4.15pm and told reporters that he submitted an application for a political donation certificate. He also picked up a hard copy of the register of voters.
Mr Yam's appearance means all political parties which have expressed an interest in the Punggol East by-election, and even some people who haven't, have dropped into the Elections Department.
