Following news that Workers’ Party Aljunied GRC Member of Parliament Chen Show Mao is no longer the party’s treasurer, he has since come out to clarify that he did not “quit or resign”.

In response to comments in a recent Facebook post on Sept. 11, Chen wrote:

He said the end of his tenure as treasurer of the party was “in accordance with the terms of my appointment”.

However, Chen remains a member of the CEC.

This is his response:

Chen made his debut in politics in 2011 when he ran alongside WP chief Low Thia Khiang in Aljunied GRC.

In June this year, he raised eyebrows when he made a challenge for Low’s secretary-general post at the party’s biennial Central Executive Council (CEC) elections.

Chen gathered 45 votes to Low’s 61 votes.

Dennis Tan, a Non-Constituency Member of Parliament, has taken over as treasurer. He was previously deputy treasurer.

Tan ran for the General Election last year for the first time in Fengshan SMC.
