GE INSIDER: Low Thia Khiang to Head East, MIA Chen Show Mao could Jump Ship


Ex-Workers’ Party secretary-general Low Thia Khiang is expected to contest in East Coast GRC come the next General Election.

Sources say the 63-year-old is expected to lead the WP’s B-Team, which currently comprises NCMPs Leon Pereira and Daniel Goh, WP stalwart Gerald Giam and Mohamed Fairoz Shariff.

It’s uncertain who among the quartet will make way if Low, currently MP for Aljunied GRC, makes the switch.

The WP’s East Coast team won 39 percent of the East Coast vote in General Election 2015.

And in a more startling discovery, WP Treasurer Chen Show Mao has reportedly been missing-in-action at several party meetings in recent months.

Chen, also a MP for Aljunied GRC, has been seen attending events hosted by the Singapore Democrats and Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s newly-formed Progress Singapore Party.

It has been a rocky past 3 years for Chen in the WP.

He narrowly missed being appointed secretary-general in 2016, missing that top post held then by Low by just 9 votes.

And in a nod to youth and leadership renewal, WP cadres voted to have Pritam Singh replace Low in 2018.
