SDA to field Desmond Lim as candidate in Punggol by-election
The Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA) has chosen Mr Desmond Lim Bak Chuan as its candidate for the Punggol East by-election.
It said in a statement on Tuesday that its campaign slogan for Mr Lim is 'Dedicated Local, Determined Leader'.
It added that Mr Lim is "armed to make a difference and cause potential ripples on the grounds of Punggol East".
On why he's making a comeback despite his defeat in the 2011 General Election, where he lost his election deposit of $16,000, Mr Lim said the experience boosted his determination to come back bigger and better.
"Ordinarily, another person in my shoes would throw in the towel after the forfeit, and swear off politics. But for me, that incident boosted my determination to come back bigger and better the next round," he said in the statement.
The SDA said Mr Lim's 'Never Say Die' attitude has earned him a place in the hearts of many Punggol East residents.
He'll reach out to residents with a personal approach.
