Media statement

We note the release of the interim report by the Parliamentary Committee of Privileges without having taken the evidence of Workers’ Party leaders against whom serious allegations have been made. The Leader of the Opposition, Mr Pritam Singh, had made it clear on 2 December, that he is prepared to give evidence before the Committee of Privileges.

Some members of the public have asked why Workers’ Party leaders have not responded thus far to the interim report released by the Committee of Privileges. We understand that the Committee’s work remains in progress. It is thus prudent for a response to be given at the appropriate forum and juncture.

We thank all who have conveyed messages of encouragement to the Party, including residents of Aljunied GRC, Hougang SMC and Sengkang GRC, Party members, volunteers, as well as members of the public.

The Workers’ Party
