As some of you may have heard by now, Andrew Loh had, as of yesterday (Sunday 5 June 2011), resigned from his position as TOC Chief Editor with immediate effect.
We are sad at this unexpected development. We do not propose to wash dirty linen in public, and so we will only say that there have been some differences between Andrew and the rest of us. Andrew has had some impressive achievements in this stint as TOC Chief Editor, notably leading TOC’s editorial coverage through the seminal 2011 General Elections. Without his leadership, we would likely not have enjoyed the success during GE2011 that we did. We thank him for his contributions and wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
Moving forward, Ravi Philemon has agreed to be Interim Chief Editor. We are working on putting in place a team to support him. In addition, our current projects will continue, hopefully with minimal disruptions. This includes the upcoming first instalment of the “Post-Election Transformation Series” on this Saturday 11 June 2011, as well as an exciting event that we will announce very shortly.
Please do bear with us if there are any disruptions or delays during this difficult period. In the meantime, please continue to email [email protected] with your ideas and comments, or if you wish to volunteer with TOC or help us in any way.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
