The leader of the Opposition, Mr Low Thia Khiang, sends his condolences to Mr Lee Hsien Loong and his family.

Dear Prime Minister,

On behalf of the Workers’ Party, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to you and your family on the passing of your father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Mr Lee was Singapore’s first Prime Minister, heading the Government for over three decades and thereafter serving another 21 years in the Cabinet as Senior Minister and Minister Mentor. He led Singapore with a group of like-minded individuals through our tumultuous early years of nationhood, including a difficult merger with Malaysia and subsequent independence in 1965.

Mr Lee served in public office for almost his entire adult life. His passing marks an end of an era in Singapore’s history. His contributions to Singapore will be remembered for generations to come.

With deepest sympathies,

LOW THIA KHIANG
Secretary-General, Workers’ Party
Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC
