SINGAPORE: A 73-year-old grassroots veteran has been appointed as adviser to Aljunied grassroots organisations for Bedok Reservoir-Punggol.

Mr Anthony Loh will take over from former Foreign Minister George Yeo, who has stepped down from his role with immediate effect.

A statement from the People's Association said Mr Loh, who is currently honorary chairman of the Bedok Reservoir-Punggol citizens' consultative committee and patron of the Punggol Community Club Building Fund Committee, has been an active grassroots leader since 1989.

Over the past 22 years, he has served as the chairman of various community club management committees and citizens' consultative committees.

Mr Loh said: "I hope that in facilitating greater interaction amongst residents and neighbours, it would help them to deepen friendships, and strengthen mutual trust, understanding and support in the community.

"I will ensure that accurate feedback is given to the government on issues that affect people; and see that the grassroots organisations deliver the government's programmes to the people."

PA also paid tribute to Mr George Yeo for his leadership as grassroots adviser since 1988. It said Mr Yeo played a key role in leading and guiding the grassroots organisations in their role of connecting people to people, and people with the government.
