The People's Action Party (PAP) Central Executive Committee (CEC) has accepted the resignation of six members who had proposed to step down to facilitate leadership renewal in the party.
They are Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Mr Goh Chok Tong, Mr Lim Boon Heng, Mr Wong Kan Seng, Mr George Yeo and Mrs Lim Hwee Hua.
The CEC has also decided to confer upon Mr Lee and Mr Goh the title of Honorary Past Secretary-General, in recognition of their outstanding service and seminal contributions to the PAP and Singapore.
The new members to fill these six vacancies will be chosen through a poll of PAP branch chairmen and cadres representing PAP branches, district committees, the Women's Wing and Young PAP.
The selection is expected to be completed by next month's party convention.
It is only right that they step down and they are no more in the cabinet. I can’t believe it took Lee Kuan Yew 11 years after he step down as Prime Minister and Goh Chock Tong 7 years to do this.
I guess that pay must be good.
Please note the infamous Mah is still in there!! Gosh!
But I still think Lee Kuan Yew will still has some influent in the Party one way or another.
So now Woody has a super long title.
Honorary Past Secretary-General of People Action Party Emeritus Senior Minister MP for Marine Parade GRC Goh Chock Tong!
Must need a very big name card to fit all that in.
