Blogger Roy Ngerng, lawyer M. Ravi and Hong Lim Park devotee Gilbert Goh looks like they are going to join forces to form the six-person Ang Mo Kio GRC team and run on the Reform Party ticket.
According to The Straits Times, the trio are said to have joined other potential candidates this past Sunday to get their portrait photos taken for the campaign, even though they have yet to be confirmed as party members.
The general election is expected to be held next month.
Ang Mo Kio GRC is helmed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who had successfully sued Ngerng for defamation. Damages are still being assessed.
Ravi had represented Ngerng previously but was suspended in mid-February from practising law after concerns about his mental health.
RP secretary-general Kenneth Jeyaretnam had said that his party will contest Ang Mo Kio and West Coast GRCs as well as Radin Mas SMC.
The other likely RP candidates include Osman Sulaiman who has rejoined the party, Ang Mo Kio resident Siva Chandran and party treasurer David Tan.
Osman had contested in Ang Mo Kio GRC with RP in the 2011 General Election. His team received 30 percent of votes.
In the midst of some speculation that RP does not have the required number of candidates to contest all the seats they are eyeing, they have announced that they have seen a spike in membership recently:
