Blogger, activist and Hong Lim Park devotee Han Hui Hui has thrown her name into the hat.
In a blog post on Aug. 26, 2015, the 23-year-old wrote that she will be contesting in Radin Mas SMC as an independent candidate.
She was seen earlier in the day leaving the Elections Department's (ELD) headquarters at Prinsep Link at around 3pm after collecting documents for an SMC. She had refused to speak to members of the media when she left.
However, in the evening, she revealed in her blog her intention to run and the canvassing for donations and volunteers:
As you have heard from the news, I was at 11 Prinsep Link today.
I will be contesting Radin Mas SMC as an independent candidate.
After six years of advocacy since 2010 on bettering our daily lives from education to transportation to housing to retirement to a brighter future, I can finally take part in an election.
From a volunteer with the incumbent during my college days to helping the opposition since the previous election, it is important to prevent walkovers given the current situation.
Radin Mas is the closest SMC to my home in Queenstown. Radin Mas SMC is one of the PAP's strongest SMC winning 67.1% of the votes in the previous election. Nonetheless, I will step forward and voice out the concerns of Singaporeans, for the elections is the time when our voice should be heard.
My team and I have been walking at Radin Mas SMC since 2013. The people who attended #ReturnOurCPF events at Hong Lim Park are also mainly the elderly from Radin Mas SMC.
We have prepared the necessary documentation, done our printing and logistics. But we still need you, we need more volunteers to spread the word to more residents at Radin Mas SMC.
We are also looking for 10,000 Singaporeans to help us with the cost of organising two rallies at Radin Mas SMC. All transactions will be published for transparency and accountability.
Please help to share this meaningful activity with your friends.
Your fellow Singaporean,
Han Hui Hui
Her intention to run in this coming GE2015 comes hot on the heels of news that fellow Hong Lim Park devotees Roy Ngerng, M Ravi and Gilbert Goh might be joining forces to form a six-person Reform Party team to contest Ang Mo Kio GRC against Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong
Sam Tan, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office & Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, is the MP of Radin Mas.
Reform Party (RP) has already indicated its intent to contest in Radin Mas SMC. Will Han remain friends with RP Sec-Gen Kenneth Jeyaretnam after this stunt?
Like as if we care?
