It's been a long time. The PAP has traditionally introduced its new candidates at its headquarters, but Dr Ng, PAP's organising secretary, said the party chose a heartland coffee shop on Wednesday to drive home the message that "elections are about electing MPs who can take care of you and your town".
He said there will be few surprises this time around; the PAP candidates "are familiar faces" who have been on the ground "a fairly long time". Two of the three new faces, Mr Chong and Mr Saktiandi, are said to be known to Bishan-Toa Payoh residents from their having done grassroots work there for the past two years.
Mr Chong, the oldest of the three at 49, will take over Mr Wong's ward, Toa Payoh, a job which gives him "big shoes to fill", he said. Mr Wong described him as one who "works very hard" and has "strong, sound values".
