PSP has also received high profile endorsements, the most prominent of which was from Lee Hsien Yang, brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
On Dec 14, Dr Tan also said that during his walkabout: “I met many of my former constituents and I was asked if I was coming home. I never left”.
Wake Up, Singapore asked the public “Which person lost his way?”, with the option of choosing Goh Chok Tong or Tan Cheng Bock. Over 3,600 people responded to the poll.
In a Facebook post on Sunday evening, Lee backed Dr Tan’s party and echoed his sentiments that the ruling party has “lost its way”.
Tan shared that many times the PAP leaders told that they will be sacking him but never did so because they knew that he has no hidden agenda and that his agenda is very clear, which is the country comes first.
To date, Tan Cheng Bock holds the record of the highest electoral margin of victory. In every general election, he had consistently polled higher than the PAP’s nationwide average.
Along with 11 other Singaporeans, Tan filed an application with the Registry of Societies for a new political party named the Progress Singapore Party on January 16.
