A group of new immigrants came to the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School (SCGS) nomination centre yesterday. Although not wearing any white attire which symbolizes the People’s Action Party, their level of support does not lose to those PAP supporters present at the centre. The group kept shouting slogans, “Sam Tan sure to win” and “PAP sure to win”, at the square of the nomination centre, immediately attracting the attentions of many of the PAP supporters there.

This 55-person cheer team was led by the managing director of Xu Run Holdings, Ms Zhang Runzhi (age 42). She is a new immigrant. She came with her husband to Singapore in 1990 and became a local citizen 17 years ago.

Although Ms Zhang belongs to Choa Chu Kang GRC, she decided to bring her staff to SCGS nomination centre to support PAP because they greatly admire Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew and she also felt that this election would be intensely fought (TP GRC nomination was at SCGS).

It is understood that the staff gathered at the company located in Bukit Batok at around 10am in the morning. They then took a chartered bus to SCGS nomination centre from the company.

One of the interviewed staff, Xie Junping (age 23) said that he belongs to Tanjong Pagar GRC and that the GRC was very well managed by the PAP team. Another staff, Jing Yunqi (age 32) said that Singapore has given outsiders many opportunities or otherwise she wouldn’t be staying in Singapore for 13 years.
