Just two days after he announced his stepping down from Ang Mo Kio GRC, four-term People’s Action Party (PAP) Member of Parliament, Inderjit Singh, has been chided for making the announcement on his Facebook page. (See here.)

Apparently, the PAP’s Organising Secretary, Ng Eng Hen, told Channel Newsasia that the way Mr Inderjit did it was not a very “dignified” way. (See here.)

“We want to handle the retirement of our MPs more smoothly and I would prefer a more deliberate and a dignified manner,” Mr Ng, who is also the Defence Minister, reportedly said.

And then in an apparent reference to Mr Inderjit, Mr Ng added:

“You can post your retirement on Facebook, but I think as an MP who has served 15, 20, even 30 years – that’s not the best way to do it.”

Many have taken this as a sign of in-fighting in the PAP.

The announcement by Mr Inderjit, who has served as an MP in the Prime Minister’s constituency since 1996, was met with surprise and appreciation for the many years of work he has put in as MP.

However, it looks like the leaders of his party do not share the same sentiments, at least not in how Mr Inderjit has apparently not let them break the news of his political retirement, which now seems to have irked the leaders.

Mr Lee Hsien Loong, the PAP secretary general and Mr Inderjit’s leader-MP in Ang Mo Kio, has not commented on the spat between his two colleagues so far.

【冠状病毒19】本月中起 更多学校课外活动将逐步恢复

教育部宣布,本月中开始将会逐步恢复学校更多课外辅助活动。 当局发文告指出,中学、大学先修班和励仁高级中学自今年7月27日起,已经逐渐恢复限定的课外活动和校内活动,而小学也在9月14日开始恢复类似的活动。 而随着国家侦察和追踪冠状病毒19确诊病例的能力提升,而且学校拥有有效的安全管理措施,因此教育部将通过适当的措施,分阶段恢复各种校内课外辅助活动。 在年终考试过后的本月中,校方可在恢复管乐活动、戏剧和演出活动;到校外指定地点举行活动,包括学习之旅、安全游泳课程、教育部户外探险中心活动等;跨学校活动,如课程辅助活动策略伙伴计划和竞赛。 而明年开始,恢复的活动包括了青年节和全国校际运动会,以及在教育部户外探险中心,由外展训练中心或其他业者所举办的活动。 教育部也放宽了活动参与人数,从原本的20人增至50人。 然而活动进行期间,参与体育活动的学生因无法戴口罩,安全距离必须保持在两米,而其他学生只见也必须保持一米距离。 在无法保持安全距离的活动中,主办方或校方必须将学生分成五人一组,每组保持一米的安全距离。若活动中,学生无法戴上口罩,安全距离则必须维持在至少三米,各组之间的互动和交流要减少或避免。
