Workers’ Party to hold press conference on Wednesday to address allegations involving Leon Perera and Nicole Seah

SINGAPORE — The Workers’ Party is set to hold a press conference on Wednesday, (19 Jul), believed to address allegations of improper relations between Aljunied GRC MP Leon Perera and party member Nicole Seah.

Recently, a video circulating online seemed to suggest an inappropriate relationship between the married Perera and Seah. The video was circulated on the same day that People’s Action Party (PAP) revealed the resignation of former Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan Jin and PAP MP Cheng Li Hui due to an affair between the two.

The Workers’ Party confirmed on Monday that it is investigating the matter and the Central Executive Committee convened an emergency meeting that night.

Sengkang GRC MP and Deputy Chairman of the Workers’ Party Media Group, Jamus Lim confirmed that a press conference will be held tomorrow.

The video in question shows Perera (53) and Seah (37) in a restaurant, with the former appearing to caress the latter’s hand.

Both are CEC members of the Workers’ Party, with Perera serving as Chairman of the Media Group, and Seah as President of the WP Youth Wing.

It is reported by local mainstream media that the pair have exhibited intimate behavior since 2020, with the party leadership being alerted in early 2021.

Mr Perera represented the Workers’ Party in the East Coast GRC during the 2015 General Election.

Although the Workers’ Party team lost with 39.27% of the votes, he was subsequently appointed as a Non-Constituency MP. In the 2020 General Election, he switched to contest in the Aljunied GRC, where he was successfully elected. He is the president of a consultancy firm and is married with two children.

Ms Seah contested in the Marine Parade GRC under the National Solidarity Party banner in the 2011 General Election.

In 2015, she quietly aided the Workers’ Party as a volunteer, and subsequently represented the Workers’ Party to contest in the East Coast GRC in the 2020 General Election. She and her husband, who married in 2015, have two daughters. She currently co-founded and is the Chief Operating Officer of a tech company.
