GE: Pasir Ris - Punggol 5 year development plan unveiled

By Channel NewsAsia 24/04/2011

SINGAPORE: Residents in Pasir Ris—Punggol can look forward to more lift upgrading and carparks.

These are just some of the projects Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean put forward at the unveiling of the Pasir Ris—Punggol GRC 5—year development plan.

Mr Teo said the plan will focus on five key themes — family, youth, parents, home and community.

Mr Teo also revealed that the Pasir Ris—Punggol GRC and Punggol East single—seat constituency will share one town council, if the PAP candidates are elected in the coming polls.

And Mr Michael Palmer, the PAP candidate for the newly—carved out constituency of Punggol East, will chair the shared town council.

When asked about the contest in Pasir Ris—Punggol GRC for the coming polls, Mr Teo said he had not seen much of the opposition.

He said: "We are working on the premise that we will have a contest. We quite frankly have not seen a lot of the opposition party that says it wants to contest; we have not seen a lot of them. But we do expect contest; we have had contest before in Pasir Ris—Punggol GRC, and we think it is a useful thing to allow our residents to have the opportunity to make a choice."

The Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA) had earlier indicated its interest to contest Pasir Ris—Punggol GRC.
