Political service does not depend on appointments: Tan Chuan-Jin
Political service does not depend on appointments, Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said in a Facebook post on Saturday, and he will continue to make a difference where he can.
The young ministers are all on the same team serving the same cause and not in a competition, he added, in his first comments on the recent Cabinet reshuffle.
The former army general, who will relinquish his appointment as Senior Minister of State for National Development from Sunday, wrote: "There is a reason why we serve, and it doesn't depend on our appointment.
"I'm already blessed to have this opportunity and will continue to make a difference where I can."
