PAP appoints Lawrence Wong as deputy secretary-general
Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong has been appointed to the new post of deputy secretary-general of the People’s Action Party (PAP), after the party’s top decision-making body met on Saturday.
Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat, who was previously an assistant secretary-general, has been appointed PAP chairman.
National Development Minister Desmond Lee has been appointed as assistant secretary-general, alongside Education Minister Chan Chun Sing.
In a statement, the PAP said its 37th central executive committee (CEC) has also co-opted four new members: Aljunied GRC’s Alex Yeo, East Coast GRC MP Cheryl Chan, labour chief Ng Chee Meng and Manpower Minister Tan See Leng.
In early November, the PAP elected its top decision-making body during its biennial party conference at Resorts World Convention Centre. The conference was attended by more than 3,000 party members.
