SINGAPORE - Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan looks set to lead a team to contest the Holland-Bukit Timah group representation constituency, his first contest since sitting out the last two polls due to bankruptcy.

His four-member team in the group representation constituency (GRC) is likely to comprise National University of Singapore Yong Yoo Lin School of Medicine professor Paul Tambyah, 50, compliance auditor Sidek Mallek, 55, and healthcare administrator Chong Wai Fung, 45.

Likely standing in Bukit Panjang single-member constituency (SMC) is former Navy staff sergeant Khung Wai Yeen, 34, who is at the same nomination centre at Assumption Pathway School.

The SDP team for the newly created Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC will comprise psychologist John Tan, 54; former political detainee Wong Souk Yee, 56; Mr Bryan Lim, 38, who heads the party's ground operations unit; and Mr Damanhuri Abas, 45, who until last month was the director of an Islamic college.

Former People's Action Party member Sadasivam Veriyah, 63, is set to contest the Bukit Batok SMC. The former teacher is at the Keming Primary School, which is also the nomination centre for Yuhua SMC, set to be the battleground for sales director Jaslyn Go, 43.
