Colorectal surgeon Dr Koh Poh Koon has acknowledged that he's a potential candidate of the People's Action Party (PAP) for Punggol East, which is set to hold a by-election on January 26 if there's a contest.
He told Channel NewsAsia that he "would definitely consider" running as the PAP's candidate.
But he has not been given the "green light from the top".
Dr Koh, 40, who has been shadowing the ward's caretaker Member of Parliament Teo Ser Luck, was present at two grassroots events with Mr Teo on Tuesday.
