Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has directed the Auditor-General to conduct an audit of the accounts of a Workers' Party(WP)-run town council in charge of Aljunied GRC and two other wards.

The Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council(AHPETC) has welcomed the government's decision to have its 2012 accounts audited by the Auditor-General's Office.

"We assure the Auditor-General's Office of our full co-operation in this matter," AHPETC chairman Sylvia Lim said in a statement on Wednesday.

The audit by the Auditor-General is at the request of National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan. It comes after an independent auditor raised issues of concern regarding AHPETC's latest accounts.
