WP candidate Lee Li Lian says by-election will be a measure of WP's performance
Workers' Party candidate Lee Li Lian says the Punggol East by-election will be a barometer of her party's performance since the last General Election.
She was speaking to reporters ahead of a walkabout this morning.
Workers' Party candidate Lee Li Lian hit her campaign trail bright and early on Thursday morning at the Kangkar LRT Station to catch the morning crowd.
Ms Lee was asked if this by-election is a measure of how well the Worker's Party has done since the last General Election.
"I guess yes. So that to see whether voters have the confidence to give us the votes".
On her campaign trail, she highlighted public transport as an area she'll focus on.
Speaking in Mandarin, Ms Lee said she wants more feeder services in the ward, which she believes will help to ease the load of the Light Rail Transit or LRT network.
" The LRT at most has only one carriage, and it isn't very big, and it is very crowded so people have to wait for two or three trips before they could finally board the train, so they might be late for work. The feeder service will add on to the solution."
Besides addressing transport issues, she hopes to champion for more amenities in the area such as childcare facilities for young families.
MPs from Aljunied Group Representation Constituency and Hougang Single Member Constituency accompanied Ms Lee.
Ms Lee hopes to reach out to all the residents in the single ward this time round.
During the 2011 General Election, she says she managed to reach out to 60 per cent of them.
