Mr Lee and Mr Chua were spotted at a coffee shop near Bendemeer Primary School, which is the nomination centre for Tanjong Pagar GRC. Mr Lee was then seen walking towards the nomination centre with his fellow party members, however he did not enter.
While Mr Lee is not running for this year’s election, he has been walking the grounds in Tanjong Pagar for the last few days with PSP’s Tanjong Pagar GRC team and is expected to continue doing so throughout the campaign period.
