Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing called on WP Dennis Tan to substantiate his claim that a PAP team had moved his election posters down.
Speaking in Parliament on Thursday (3 Sep), Mr Chan said it was a ‘serious allegation‘ and should be substantiated with evidence, more so because the allegations are ‘made in this House’.
“In the spirit of constructive politics that we discussed in recent days in this House, it cannot be that a member stands up to raise doubts, and does not follow through to substantiate his allegations, ” Mr Chan said.
All allegations thoroughly and impartially investigated to protect the integrity of the election processes and to be fair to all parties involved
“ELD takes all such allegations seriously, and will investigate them thoroughly and impartially,” said Mr Chan. “This is to be fair to all parties involved, protect the integrity of the election processes, and continue to uphold trust in our elections.”
