HERE ARE SOME PAP MPs WITH TRUE GRIT

PAP MP (Bukit Timah) DR WANG KAI YUEN



The nation-builder press, April 29, 2004

He holds 11 directorships in publicly-listed companies. He had to resign from one after PM Goh Chok Tong spelled out new guidelines banning PAP MPs from sitting on the boards of companies owned or chaired by grassroots leaders they have appointed. Dr Wang also has a full-time job as managing director of Xerox Software. True Grit.


PAP MP (Tampines GRC) ONG KIAN MIN




The nation-builder press, April 29, 2004


He holds 11 directorships, including at Osim and BreadTalk. He is a lawyer.

PAP MP (Hong Kah GRC) DR JOHN CHEN



The nation-builder press, April 29, 2004

He holds eight directorships. He was recently in the news when a shareholder questioned the amount of fees he earned as a director in one company.

PAP MP (East Coast GRC) CHEW HENG CHING



The nation-builder press, April 29, 2004

He holds six directorships and is chairman of the Singapore Institute of Directors, managing director of Hiap Hoe Ltd and executive director of Lee Kim Tah Holdings.

These PAP MPs hold so many important positions in so many companies. And as Dr Wang Kai Yuen says, "It's not for the money because some of the companies pay me as little as $10,000 a year." True Grit.
