Hougang by-election saga: Both parties told to look at legislative history


The Court of Appeal today heard an appeal against a judge's ruling on the Hougang by-election case.

At the end of it, it ordered lawyers for the Attorney-General's Chambers and a Hougang resident to dig into Singapore's legislative history in 1963.

This might shed more light and fill any gaps in the earlier High Court decision on the case, the Appeals Court said.

Both parties agreed to take a month to make further written submissions.
