A roundup of key messages raised by PAP, RP, SDA and WP as they meet in a final by-election face-off today (Jan 26) to contest for Punggol East Single Member Constituency
Reform Party: Kenneth Jeyaretnam, 53, Full-time politician
1. Campaigning with the slogan - "No more broken promises" where he promised to move to Punggol East, donate 10% of his ministerial pay to community projects, and become a full-time MP, if he gets elected
2. Childcare options; public transport links; legal and job clinics; and financial management classes and youth mentoring scheme
3. Called for stronger opposition voice in Parliament and urged voters to put him as the alternative to PAP and WP
In the final rally held on Thursday, Mr Jeyaretnam said, "I too have questions but I also have a lot of the answers. If you (let) an economist ask these questions, you will finally see what (the) opposition is good for. Believe me, I can outclass our PM or (DPM and Minister for Finance) Tharman in a debate, any day. Which is why the PAP refuses to (have a) debate with me. Only by sending me into Parliament, will we get proper answers.”
He added that he is confident of securing enough votes to ensure he gets his election deposit back.
