The Chiams were out and about meeting the residents of Bishan, Toa Payoh and Potong Pasir in their usual party fashion over the weekend of 22nd of December to send their Christmas greetings.
They were out in force with about twenty party members bringing a message of love and hope to their constituents.
When asked what were his greatest achievements, Chiam said, “it was forming political parties: the Singapore Democratic Party, Singapore People’s Party and Singapore Democratic Alliance – to contest and win in the General Elections in order to keep the ruling People’s Action Party in check.”
Despite his frail health, Chiam is steadfast with his commitment of keeping the PAP in check. He is determined to expand the space for the opposition movement. However, that will depend on the caliber of new blood into the party ranks and the executive council.
Political watchers are keeping an eye on the upcoming party conference in January 2014, where new CEC members are elected.
