SINGAPORE - The National Solidarity Party (NSP) was out in force in Sembawang group representation constituency (GRC) on Sunday (Aug 30) morning, giving out party fliers and canvassing support for the Sept 11 elections.
Their presence is a strong clue that the party would be contesting the GRC despite speculation that it might not do so as a result of internal party turmoil and resignations of potential candidates.
About 20 party members and activists were giving out flags and fliers at both Sembawang and Woodlands MRT stations.
Party organising secretary Spencer Ng said the line-up for the party's five-man Sembawang GRC team had been confirmed, but details would only be revealed on nomination day.
That said, more than five potential candidates were spotted on Sunday morning, including Mr Ng, the party's youth head Eugene Yeo, party new face Kevryn Lim, members Yadzeth Haris, Ramli Mohamed and Nicky Tan.
The party's acting secretary-general Reno Fong was also present.
Ms Lim, Mr Ramli, Mr Yadzeth and Mr Yeo seemed to be leading the the outreach effort, they spoke to residents and gamely snapped photos with them.
Party members were also heard introducing Mr Yadzeth and Ms Lim as potential candidates.
Sembawang resident Koh Keow Chai said Ms Lim was introduced to him as a potential candidate. "They told me she was a potential candidate. It's good, the young ones should contest," said 65-year-old.
