By Augustine Anthuvan
SINGAPORE: The Secretary-General of the Workers’ Party has said he does not feel anything significant or negative towards the WP over the James Gomez incident.
Mr Low Thia Khiang was asked during a WP walkabout in Nee Soon East if the incident has hurt the image of the opposition party – which has made accountability a key campaign platform.
Mr Low is a WP candidate for Hougang.
Mr Low says: “I don’t feel anything significant or negative towards the Workers’ Party over the incident. I think people do understand and people do.
“Singaporeans are intelligent enough, sophisticated enough to look at the thing. I mean the footage, the apologies, my explanation and decide for themselves.” – CNA/de
