Opposition politician Nicole Seah has quit the National Solidarity Party (NSP). 

In her email response to MediaCorp, Ms Seah said leaving the NSP was an extremely difficult and painful decision to make. 

She represented the NSP in the 2011 general election in the Marine Parade GRC. 

She last held the post of second assistant secretary-general in the party. 

Former NMP, Associate Professor Eugene Tan, says Ms Seah leaves behind pretty big shoes for the NSP to fill. 

"It's not very often that we come across someone like Nicole, able to connect with the ground, able to emote, and having a certain level of fluency with what's happening in Singapore."

But he adds that this is part and parcel of politics. 

"I've always taken the view that no politician is irreplaceable. So, I think certainly, NSP will certainly want to try to look for someone who could step into the big shoes that Nicole Seah has left behind. But I think it's important for political parties not to feel too attached to any particular member."
