Allow NCMPs to partner elected MPs

Many Singaporeans, permanent residents and even foreigners approach our elected MPs at Meet-the-People Sessions for assistance on a range of issues.

Unlike elected MPs, Non-Constituency MPs (NCMPs) are not involved in these sessions, where MPs try to help residents with their woes.

In the interests of all our citizens and to make Singapore the best home to live in, I suggest that NCMPs be allowed to partner elected MPs at the Meet-the-People Sessions, so that NCMPs can better understand concerns on the ground and make better contributions in Parliament.
