Workers' Party Will Defend Hougang by Election In SMC

Workers' Party Will Defend Hougang by Election In SMC: The Workers' Party says it will work as hard as it can to defend the Hougang Single Member Constituency (SMC).

The Workers Party has called on the Government to abandon the EU Fiscal Treaty referendum on May 31 at its campaign launch calling for the treaty to be rejected.

In its first posting on the party's website, after the Writ of Election was issued for the Hougang by-election, the Workers' Party also called on supporters to come forward to help in many ways possible.

It says it will need supporters to be at the Nomination Centre at Serangoon Junior College on May 16, and also to help in many ways during the campaign.

The Workers' Party did not name its candidate for the by-election on its website.

Meanwhile, three other opposition parties have declared their stand not to contest the Hougang by-election.

In a statement, the Secretary-General of the National Solidarity Party (NSP) Hazel Poa says after careful deliberation, the party has decided that it will not be fielding a candidate in the upcoming Hougang by-election.

The Singapore Democratic Party (SDP), in a Facebook posting, reiterated that it will not be fielding a candidate for the Hougang by-election. The party had stated previously that it would not contest the by-election.

The Singapore People's Party (SPP) has also confirmed that it will not be contesting the Hougang by-election.

Its Secretary-General Chiam See Tong told Channel NewsAsia that it is best to avoid a three-cornered fight in Hougang.
