SINGAPORE - The People's Action Party on Sunday (Aug 16) announced its line-up for West Coast Group Representation Constituency (GRC).

The GRC, which has been reduced from five to four members, will see the addition of Mr Patrick Tay. The other three members of the West Coast team are Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office S. Iswaran and MP Foo Mee Har.

Mr Tay replaces Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong, who will be leaving to co-anchor the PAP team in the newly-formed Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC along with Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob.

Mr Tay, the assistant secretary-general of NTUC, was previously an MP with Nee Soon.

Mr Lim, who has been in politics since 1991, will co-anchor the GRC with Mr Iswaran.

The party also said that MP Cedric Foo will remain in Pioneer Single Member Constituency (SMC).
