WP Dennis Tan

Spending time talking about petty politics when the country is facing a pandemic?

MP Dennis Tan accused the of “petty” and “bad politics” during July’s General Election.

Workers’ Party MP Dennis Tan said he experienced “petty and bad politics” during the 2020 General Election, which could lead to a divisive political culture, in his maiden speech in on 31 August.

He cited complaints made against the placement of flags during the campaign in Hougang, and how the People’s Action Party planted its flags in front of WP banners, blocking them from view.

His comments led to an exchange with MP Murali Pillai, who asked if Mr Tan felt that the Elections Department had not been even-handed and that the PAP had been using its “power of incumbency” unfairly against opponents.

Mr Tan’s also alleged that his posters were pulled down from their original height. Such allegation is a serious one, ELD said, adding that it has not received any such report from the MP.

“Mr Tan should file a report with ELD so that this can be investigated,” ELD added.
