I have a yet another dark secret to reveal.
In the letter of resignation that is shared on Lim's Facebook pagehe stated that he had tried to make the NSP a voice for the common man and voice for ordinary Singaporeans as it was the reason why he came into politics.
He wrote that the turning point for him on the choice of resignation, was when he got to know that there were elements in the party who disapproved of his participation in the water protest event at Hong Lim Park organised by Transitioning.
Another issue over which he said to have had great differences with the party is over the Elected Presidency. He wrote, "This is one of the greatest Constitutional matters of our time, but again the party chose to remain silent.
I understand that there are more conservative elements within the party who feel otherwise. Ms Poa in her resignation letter, cited that she sees no choice other than to resign from the party, as the direction of the party that it has decided to pursue has deviated greatly from hers.
Ms Poa also pointed out that the position of sec-gen in NSP is merely the role of a media spokesperson while the real leader of the party is the President. The position of President is currently being held by Mr Sebastian Teo. Most of them had had stints of less than two years each, in fact, Lim is the longest serving secretary general for a long time.
Aug — Feb 18 months Ken Sunn: Feb — June 16 months Hazel Poa: June to September 15 months Jeannette Chong: Oct — Jan 15 months Tan Lam Siong: It was a baptism of fire for me as there were many dramas surrounding our party leading into the last General Elections. However I felt the need to answer the call and to help stabilize the ship.
That was the reason why I came into politics, and as SG I felt an increased responsibility to do so. It was an issue I felt passionately about, and on which I gave a speech at Speakers Corner.
It was an issue that troubled most Singaporeans and one that I thought the NSP would wholeheartedly embrace. I was therefore surprised to learn that elements in the party disapproved of me taking part in the event.
I am proud of that speech which has reached over a quarter of a million people, far surpassing any post which the NSP has ever put out. Another issue over which I have had great differences with the party is over the Elected Presidency.
This is one of the greatest Constitutional matters of our time, but again the party chose to remain silent. I eschew the type of politics where people, especially politicians, are frightened to speak up because of personal considerations.
As Secretary General I made it clear to the party that I would never utter or write anything defamatory and so long as I kept within those parameters I would always exercise my constitutional right of free speech. Our country faces increasing problems and I will continue to speak out for my fellow countryman.
I intend to use other platforms and innovative methods to achieve this objective; it is clear however that I cannot continue to be a member of the NSP and I hereby resign my party membership from this date henceforth.Facebook user, Chester Ang shared on his wall that his Manager at OCBC rewrote his resignation letter – just so that it would make the Manager look good.
