“The choice of blue apparel by most of us was a happy coincidence. Sylvia did well for us going with black!” Mr Singh said.
SINGAPORE: A trio of Members of Parliament from The Workers’ Party paid a courtesy call at the New Zealand High Commission on Thursday (Mar 16).
WP chief and leader of the Opposition Pritam Singh posted a photo of himself on Facebook with party chair Sylvia Lim, who both represent Aljunied GRC, and MP He Ting Ru (Sengkang GRC) with High Commissioner Gabrielle Rush and Deputy High Commissioner Peter Kemp, with whom they had “an engaging conversation,” he wrote, “on a number of matters of topical interest.”
Mr Singh noted that almost all of them happened to be dressed in blue, which is the colour of The Workers’ Party. “The choice of blue apparel by most of us was a happy coincidence. Sylvia did well for us going with black!”
The announcement of Ms Rush as High Commissioner to Singapore was made last December, with New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta noting, “Singapore is an important partner for Aotearoa New Zealand with shared interests across political, security, economic and environmental issues.
