PAP's Murali sworn in as MP for Bukit Batok The 48-year-old retained the seat for the People’s Action Party, which was vacated after former MP David Ong resigned in March over an alleged extra-marital affair with a PAP grassroots activist. SINGAPORE: Mr Murali Pillai, the winning candidate for the Bukit Batok by-election on Saturday (May 7), was sworn in as a Member of Parliament (MP) on Monday. Mr Murali retained the seat for the People’s Action Party (PAP), which was vacated after former MP David Ong resigned in March over an alleged extra-marital affair with a PAP grassroots activist. The 48-year-old joins 82 other PAP MPs in the 101-seat Parliament. In Saturday’s contest, Mr Murali, a lawyer and grassroots veteran, garnered a vote share of 61 per cent. His opponent – the Singapore Democratic Party’s chief, Chee Soon Juan – got 39 per cent of the votes. Mr Murali’s victory comes just eight months after his first electoral contest in the 2015 General Election. Back then, he stood as part of a PAP team challenging the incumbent Workers’ Party in Aljunied GRC, and narrowly lost by a margin of 2 percentage points. - CNA/ll
