97% of Singaporeans wouldn’t donate money to PAP MPs if they made an appeal similar to that of the Workers Party MPs.
This was according to an online survey conducted by Wake Up Singapore in reaction to the latest financial appeal made by WP MPs, Sylvia Lim, Pritam Singh, and Low Thia Khiang.
The WP town councilors involved in multimillion-dollar lawsuits over alleged improper payments ended their fundraising effort on Saturday (Oct 27), after collecting more than $1 million. Upon closing their appeal, WP chairman Sylvia Lim, secretary-general Pritam Singh and former chief Low Thia Khiang had raised a total of $1,008,802 in a span of 72 hours. Thousands of Singaporeans from all walks of life responded to the public appeal, donating amounts ranging from a few dollars to over a thousand.
Meanwhile, Wake Up Singapore asked the public “Would you donate money if PAP MPs made an appeal?”. The votes were overwhelmingly in favor of “NO” which garnered over 2,700 votes versus less than 100 “YES” votes.
