Reform Party Moves to Support the Singapore Democratic PartyPublished: 29th April 2016
In solidarity, The Reform Party has decided that all members, including office holders of the Central Executive Committee, should be free to follow their conscience in volunteering to help the SDP during the Bukit Batok by-election campaign. Reform Party’s leadership actively encourages its membership to volunteer on the SDP campaign during this period should Dr Chee’s team see fit to use them.
This decision was imparted to the membership yesterday the 28 April 2016. We hope that as many members as possible will lend their support.
The Reform Party was created and set up by J B Jeyaretnam who brought an historic win for the Opposition in the Anson by-election in 1981. That win was brought about in part by an unusual degree of cooperation from the other Opposition parties. Barisan Socialis and the Singapore United Front even sent in their workers to help Mr Jeyaretnam in the battle for Anson. The Reform Party has made this decision in the Anson spirit and we hope that other parties will follow suit.
