Workers' Party chairman Sylvia Lim has described as incomplete and misleading the Ministry of National Development's (MND) statement on the financial statements of the town council under the opposition party.

On Thursday, the MND issued a statement to express concern that the independent auditors engaged by Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) submitted a disclaimer of opinion on the accounts for the second year running.

On Friday, Ms Lim issued her response, in her capacity as chairman of AHPETC.

She said the MND's statement had to be put "in proper perspective" and set out her response to the problem areas flagged by the ministry.
