SINGAPORE : Just hours after its victory was announced, the People's Action Party's (PAP) Pasir Ris-Punggol Group Representation Constituency (GRC) team was out and about on its thank-you parade on Sunday morning.

Led by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, the team travelled from Pasir Ris East to Punggol South to thank residents for their support.

DPM Teo said: "It is also to bring people together, so that we can move forward after this GE (General Election) to continue to build a strong community. We will be here to serve the residents and we want to work with them for the next five years."

Most were happy to see the Deputy Prime Minister and his team, with some expressing concern for Penny Low, who was using a crutch. When asked about what happened to her leg, she said that she had just had an operation.

Ng Geok Siang, a resident from Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, said: "When we have a problem, we go and see Penny Low at the RC, and she really helps us, so I think it is good that PAP has won.

"I need to apply for a new flat after two-and-a-half years, but we have some trouble with...applying for the flat, so I approached her for help. So she helped me."

And despite winning 64.79 per cent of the votes against the Singapore Democratic Alliance's 35.21 per cent, Mr Teo has said that his team would do its best to listen to residents' needs and meet their expectations.
