Hammer Time! Workers Party wins Punggol East By-Election


Last night, an amazing thing happened. The moon turned blue! Congrats Lee Li Lian and the Workers Party. And congrats to residents of Punggol East. Welcome to the family! I'm proud to be living in this small but growing blue part of Singapore.

Above are some of my tweets during the live tweeting of the Punggol East By-Election results. You can follow me on Twitter here. And below is a video of Yam Ah Mee in his last appearance as the Returning Officer, declaring Workers Party Lee Li Lian as the winner of the 2013 Punggol East By-Election!



Yam Ah Mee will be resigning from People's Association (PA) in March. Li Lian garnered 16,038 votes against PAP candidate Dr Koh Poh Koon's 12,856 to become the first female opposition member to win a single member constituency since 1965. What an accomplishment by Li Lian and the Workers Party. And what a result this is for the future of politics and democracy in Singapore. The people have spoken and change is coming.
