SINGAPORE - Ms Kevryn Lim, the National Solidarity Party's (NSP) new face, said that she wants to champion transport issues, among other things.

The 26-year-old said she wanted to focus on transport because "it is an everyday, day-to-day thing" that affects Singaporeans.

"I am running an events company and we really run around a lot, so this transport issue is also affecting myself," she said in an interview outside NSP headquarters at Jalan Besar.

When asked to be more specific, she mentioned bus fares and the fact that the MRT system is "having some issues supporting our population".

She added that this will not be the only issue she will campaign on.

Ms Lim has been spotted at NSP walkabouts in Tampines and Marine Parade in the past few weeks.

As one of the youngest candidates expected to run in the coming election, the newbie has already generated some online buzz, not least because of some racy photographs that were taken as part of her modelling portfolio.

The former model and project director at events management and digital marketing firm EM.DM has not flinched in the face of criticism, and has said that she is proud of her past.

She has tried her hand at a few other occupations, according to reports, including acting and deejaying, while she was studying in Australia.

It's not surprising that the attractive young candidate has been called the "new Nicole Seah".

Ms Seah was 24 when she contested as part of an NSP team in Marine Parade group representation constituency (GRC) in the 2011 election, and was one of the most high-profile opposition candidates.

She left the NSP in 2013 and has moved to Bangkok for work last year. Ms Seah told The Straits Times on Sunday that she will not be running in the coming election.

When asked for her reaction if Ms Seah were to come back to contest, Ms Lim said that she hopes get some tips from her because she was very successful in the last election.

Ms Seah's five-man team won 43.4 per cent of the vote in Marine Parade in 2011 - the third-best opposition performance in a GRC.
