Lim withdraws motion on AIM issue, pledges to give input to Govt review


Workers' Party(WP) chairman Sylvia Lim is withdrawing an adjournment motion that she filed on the sale of software used by PAP town councils to Action Information Management (AIM).

Originally scheduled for next Monday's Parliament sitting, the motion was pulled, she said, because "the goal of protecting the public and residents' interests would be better served if the government investigation and review were to first proceed."

"After the completion of the review and publication of its findings, the matter can be raised in Parliament again as the circumstances require," she said in a statement.

Ms Lim, who is the chairman of WP-run Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC), welcomed the announcement of the review and pledged to provide its input to the Ministry of National Development which is leading the review.
