Tan Chuan-Jin all ready for online campaigning
Tan Chuan-Jin seems to be the most internet savvy politician in Singapore, taking the title from Baey Yam Keng. Barely 1 hour after PM Lee’s address, he has already posted on Facebook thanking his residents and supporters for 9 years in public office.
Here is his post in full:
“Thank you for your friendship and support these past 9 years. It’s been a precious privilege and honour to serve in public office.
To my residents in Kembangan-Chai Chee and Marine Parade GRC, I humbly ask for your continued support for me and my Marine Parade GRC team.
To my fellow Singaporeans, I humbly ask for your support for the People’s Action Party so that we can look after all Our Lives, Our Jobs and Our Future in the coming years. 🙏🏻🇸🇬
Will continue to pray for wisdom, courage, integrity and love as I carry out my responsibilities, as I have endeavored to in the past 9 years.”
