When Ms Nadine Yap was introduced weeks ago as a slated candidate for Democratic Progressive Party in the Bishan-Toa Payoh Team, voters at the GRC were impressed with her eloquency and credentials.

However, it is now clear that Ms Yap will likely not be standing for election, with the recent announcement of confirmed candidates for Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC fielded by the alliance between DPP and the Singapore People’s Party.

Undeterred, Ms Yap told TOC that she will continue to contribute her perspectives and ideas, working with the party and constituents to come up with alternatives.

“I am not a quiet person,” she said. “You will hear my voice. It may not be in Parliament but I will be speaking up. And I will be speaking up not just randomly in public but I will be trying to bring up the issues specifically will people who also make a difference in different parts of society.”

【冠状病毒19】非我国公民或永久居民 自印度入境需呈合格检测报告

卫生部严厉要求从印度前来我国的非本地公民或永久居民,都必须在入境前出示获得国际或印度政府认证的实验室所提供,冠状病毒19阴性检测结果报告,否则将无法入境我国。 印度至今已累计超过565万起,情况堪忧,为了确保国人安全,当局于上周四(9月17日)开始就要求曾在过去14天到过印度的非本地公民或永久居民,前来我国之前的72小时,必须进行冠病检测并显示阴性结果,才能入境我国。 然而,印度最近出现伪造冠病检测报告事件。 对此,卫生部将进行双重把关,包括要求入境者在印度机场登机前和抵达我国时,递交检测结果予工作人员进行核实。若被发现有关报告无效,旅客将不被允许入境。卫生部也将对付伪造证明企图入境的人士,包括禁止他们再次进入新加坡。 当局澄清,就算冠病检测呈阴性反应,入境者仍然需要到制定设施内进行14天的居家隔离,并在隔离期结束前接受冠病检测。
