Ex-Workers' Party MP for Hougang Yaw Shin Leong has broken his silence.
He apologised to the voters of Hougang for the inconvenience caused.
In his letter, which was sent to the media on Friday, Mr Yaw said he and his wife will be back in Singapore regularly.
In the letter, Yaw wrote that with the Hougang by-election around the corner, he would like to take the ‘opportunity’ to ‘thank’ Hougang voters for casting their votes for him during 2011 election.
“I also wish to apologize for the inconvenience caused to you, for the whole episode and having to go through the polls again as a result of my expulsion from the Workers’ Party,” he added.
