Singapore Election 2011

Latest news and updates about Singapore's 14th GE

Number of friends on Nicole Seah’s Facebook exceeded that of Tin Pei Ling’s

Posted by singaporege2011 on April 21, 2011

In less than two days since she announced her candidacy in coming general election, the number of Singaporeans who joined Nicole Seah’s Facebook increased from about a hundred to 2,400, exceeding that of PAP candidate Tin Pei Ling whose Facebook has been in existence for quite some time.

Ms Seah will be contesting in Marine Parade GRC as part of the National Solidarity Party’s five-member team.

The warm welcome given to 24 year old Ms Seah’s candidacy by netizens contrasted that of Ms Tin who was flamed mercilessly for her young age and apparent lack of substance in the preceding two weeks. It also demolished PAP minister without portfolio Ms Lim Hwee Hua’s earlier assertions that Ms Tin was ‘targetted’ because of her gender.

Many netizens posted on Ms Seah’s Facebook wall, pledging their support for her.

Tan Hui Ling wrote:

“You could have chosen the expressway to parliament but you did not. You chose to do the right thing for the people. I hope residents in Marine Parade would see things as I do and appreciate what you do.”

Bandie Wen added:

“You look good enough to be my MP. 1 vote for you. I live in MacPherson. No Tintin please OH GAWD!”

Wong Kok Loon praised her for her courage:

“Go Nicole, we need young heroes like you to lead the young generation towards a better future for all Singaporeans!”

Though Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong put up a brave front and said he welcomed the challenge from NSP, he is likely to be embarrassed at the polls.

In 2006, a rookied Workers’ Party team managed to win 33.3 percent of the valid votes in Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s Ang Mo Kio GRC. Going by current sentiments, it will be difficult for SM Goh to achieve the same result.

  1. Pls Nicole said

    Pls Nicole you must not come out this GE. You know there are PAP supporters who are swinging over to oppo because they r not comfortable with TPL ‘s age . You will do a disservice to the oppo winning the GRC. Think carefully…
