Singapore Hougang Elections 2012
Following the Expulsion of Worker’s Part Member Yaw Shin Leong for a controversial extra martial affair on 14/02/2012, this will be the 16th by-election since the first election and the first by-election after over 19 years. Nomination day will be on 16 May 2012.
On 22 February 2012, the Speaker Michael Palmer declared the seat vacant, effective from the date of expulsion, as required by the Constitution.
This by-election is the result of the expulsion of Yaw Shin Leong, Member of Parliament (MP) for Hougang, from the Workers’ Party (WP). This made Yaw lose his responsibility as the treasurer. Under the Constitution of Singapore, an MP’s seat falls vacant if the MP is expelled from the party under whose banner he or she stood for election. The last MP to have been expelled from his party was Chiam See Tong, expelled from the Singapore Democratic Party in 1993 (but reinstated in December the same year after a ruling by the High Court.
