5 Possible Candidates for the upcoming GE

There are quite a lot of buzz in recent weeks on when the General Elections (GE) will be and some speculation on who will be in the run for elections.

Here’s 5 possible candidates we think should run for elections:

People’s Action Party

  1. Gilbert Tan, CEO e2i


The Chief Executive Officer of NTUC’s Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) has been tipped by the local Chinese papers as a possible candidate in the upcoming elections.

The man has been with the labour movement since 2009 and was previously with the public sector for 15 years. He is definitely no stranger to politics.

  1. Cham Hui Fong, Assistant Secretary General NTUC

Cham Hui Fong

The one-time Nominated Member of Parliament is seriously someone to watch. She is no stranger to the media, having been interviewed numerous times as the NTUC’s spokesperson for key issues relating to workers.

  1. Desmond Kuek, CEO SMRT Corporation


He might be in the news of late for the largest MRT disruption in history. But hey, the train disruption is definitely not entirely his wrongdoing right? The former Chief of Defence Force has been credited for putting in place the building blocks of the 3rd Generation SAF by transforming its force structure and developing key capabilities and systems.

Workers’ Party

  1. Donald Low, Associate Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy


Low leads the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy’s executive education efforts and its case study unit. He was serving in the public service for 15 years prior to this. We heard he’s been active with the Workers’ Party, so why not?

Singapore Democratic Party

  1. Roy Ngerng, Blogger


So what do we not know about this person?  He’s been spotted at many of the events organized by the SDP and has been vocal about hot-topic issues such as CPF.


So, who else do you think should stand up for elections?
