WP CADRES WHO TESTIFIED IN RAEESAH KHAN SCANDAL RESIGNS, “WANT TO BE REGULAR CITIZENS”

Workers’ Party (CP) cadre Peiying Loh, who testified during the Raeesah Khan scandal where she lied in parliament, has resigned alongside fellow cadre Yudhishthra Nathan as members of the Workers’ Party.

She cited her wish to “return to being regular citizens, free to express ourselves as individuals, without others questioning our loyalties and allegiances” as her reasons for resigning.

Here is what she said

Today, we tendered our resignations as members of the Workers’ Party to the Secretary-General, Pritam Singh.

Since December 2021, we have removed ourselves from volunteer work towards the Workers’ Party’s wards and efforts. We have remained members in name, and have not been actively contributing.

For this reason, we’ve decided to resign. These past 11 months haven’t been easy for us, and we feel it’s come to a point where it’s time for us to move on from being members of the Workers’ Party. We want to return to being regular citizens, free to express ourselves as individuals, without others questioning our loyalties and allegiances.

We’ve both been with the party for 9 years or more, and have been cadres since 2016. In these years, we’ve loved the party dearly, and contributed actively in many teams and departments, both grassroots and strategic. One of the highlights is definitely our work towards the Walking with Singapore: The Workers’ Party 60th Anniversary book; a chapter of Singapore’s history we felt important to tell.

We hold our memories of our time in the Workers’ Party with fondness. We’ve made lifelong friends in each other, and with others along the way. There are many good people in the rank and file of the Workers’ Party who’ve dedicated their lives towards building a better Singapore. We hope they remember to keep the welfare of Singaporeans at the centre of all that they do.
