    update:


    Speaker of Parliament Michael Palmer has resigned as an MP today after revealing that he had been involved in an extramarital affair.

    He made the stunning announcement at a press conference in the PAP headquarters this afternoon.

    He said he resigned to "take full responsibility for a grave mistake" and to avoid further embarrassment to the PAP and to Parliament.

    He applogised unreservedly and said the relationship was with a staff member of the People's Association in Pasir Ris - Punggol.

    DPM Teo Chee Hean, who was also at the press conference also apologised to residents on behalf of the party and himself.

    He said Minister of State and Mayor Teo Ser Luck will oversee the Punggol East constituency.

    Mr Zainal Sapari will be the new chairman of the town council and Deputy Speaker Charles Chong will serve as Acting Speaker.

    Completed condos - No.

    Under construction / to be constructed - Think the PCs River Isles, Flo Residences and the EC Riverparc Residence are part of Punggol East.

    whether or not there is by-election depends on whether many pple cry foul or not. coz this is PAP ward to start with, they may just assign another MP to take over.

    the last one was becoz oppo ward, so the indian aunty went to make noise.

    Punggol East is at one "corner" of Punggol - won't stop the rest of Punggol 21 plan.

    WP Lee Li Lian had 41% under 3 corner fight last year. Assuming Desmond Lim's 4.5% goes to her WP should have 45.5% and it will be a good fight and referendum on PAP report card.

    Don't bother too much who will take over or whether there is bi -election or not lah...
    It's more interesting to find out who he got involved with n how it was discovered?
    I am sure he was asked to resign after being caught!

    (1) You are right. Punggol East actually covers part of Sengkang (mainly the Rivervale area).

    (2) The Singapore electoral map is found at this website:

    Punggol East ward is not part of Punggol !!!

    Don't think it will have any impact on Punggol 21 plans

    Punggol east smc is actually Sengkang east of punggol road, i.e. rivervale area. The south boundary is sengkang east ave.

    So the only condo in this area is rivervale crest.
