Just 5 months after stepping up to the post of Secretary-General, Tan Lam Siong has resigned, even though he remains a party member.
The NSP says that he stepped down “to focus more on his passion for social and community work, and charitable pursuits”.
The NSP’s statement, signed by president Sebastian Teo added:
“During his tenure as the secretary-general of NSP, he has been energetic and resourceful, putting in place new initiatives and introducing new perspectives into the party,”
Teo said that the party’s next secretary-general will be decided on at a party meeting scheduled for next week.
Meanwhile, Tan has remained mum on his reasons for stepping down.
Three other NSP Council members resigned shortly after, Ravi Philemon, Bryan Long and Osman Sulaiman.
Together with Chong-Aruldoss, they left the party and applied to join Chiam See Tong’s Singapore People’s Party.
In spite of this, the NSP has recently unleashed a new member on the Singaporean public – Kevryn Lim.
The attractive 22-year-old has been seen on party walkabouts, and has been touted as the party’s next Nicole Seah.
