Koh Choong Yong declined to reveal GE spending

My granny used to tell me, "Aiya, all the political rallies or are just wayang only. After GE, everyone won't do what they promise to do..."

Really? Let's examine the First World Parliament party:

The Workers' Party Aljunied GRC team was represented by two election agents, namely Mr Tan Soon Meng and Ms Ng Swee Bee. They said expenses for the five new MPs' campaign came up to a "six-figure" sum that was "comfortably within limits"....

Workers' Party candidate who stood in Sengkang West Single Member Constituency, Mr Koh Choong Yong also turned up for submissions of expenses. Mr Koh, who lost to PAP candidate Lam Pin Min, declined to reveal how much his expenses amounted to.

Whatever happened to all the transparency?

"comfortably within limits"???

Total valid vote count for Aljunied GRC was 132,118. Assuming we round off the figure to 140,000. Let's multiply the number of voters with the maximum spending allowed by the law ($3.50) = $490,000 ["six-figure" sum]

Whatever happened to all the transparency?

And Koh Choong Yong, you say it best... when you say nothing at all...
