MP Charles Chong 'courageous' to stand in Punggol East despite liver condition: Ng Eng Hen

SINGAPORE: Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen on Wednesday (Dec 21) lauded Member of Parliament (MP) Charles Chong for "courage to act on his convictions”, despite being diagnosed with a liver condition about three years ago.

Dr Ng revealed in a Facebook post that when Mr Chong was asked to stand for the People's Action Party in the opposition-held Punggol East Single Member Constituency in the 2015 General Elections, “Charles’ response was almost instantaneous – ‘Yes, I‘m ready to fight’,” he said.

“Charles knew that any candidate there must expect a hectic campaign and a tough fight. The rest they say is history. Charles fought hard and won back the constituency,” he added. “How he could do this, with the shadow of a liver transplant over him, I cannot pretend to understand fully except that Charles has guts and the courage to act on his convictions.”

Dr Ng also revealed that Mr Chong was ready to stand in the opposition-held Aljunied Group Representation Constituency if asked.


Mr Chong underwent a liver transplant on Dec 1 and was discharged from hospital last week. His younger son donated part of his liver to him, he said in a statement on Tuesday. He added that the recovery process "has been good" and that he hopes to be given the all-clear by doctors' after eight weeks of medical leave.

Said Dr Ng: “The prospect of a liver transplant would have caused any one of us to at least reduce our activities, review our life’s goals but certainly not take on major challenges. Not for Charles Chong.

"I have great respect for Charles Chong, and now you know why.”

If happened to Opposition, what will Mr Teo say ah??

I thought they do, and we owe them.

And as Ms Lee Wee Ling said something about dynasty. Since LHL didn't take legal action to defend his namesake, than there must be some truth in what Ms Lee said.

So in a dynasty era, the country is owned by the imperial while the subjects are their servants/slaves whatever. So yes, they own the country while we owe it to them.

Like that also can. What if the transplant fail? Dun the voters need to go to voting stations again? Take a gamble with voters.

They knew this guy has a few lucky card that can marginally win a hotly contested area. I always thought they are quite superstitious.

They can do what they wanted as there is nothing we can do even after the operations.
If successful then announced abt his medical and continues as happened now, if no then call for a by election. Whichever direction, we, the ppl all LL

I thought people would like to see the MP get 'screwed' so there will be a by election and chance for opposition?

Last GE result was an improvement across all wards (or was it except a few?) due to several reasons. So winning back PE doesn't mean he has a lucky card. If GE was called about now, I don't think the outcome would be as favourable as last year. Voters sentiments ma.
