SINGAPORE - The Secretary-General of the National Solidarity Party (NSP) Mr Tan Lam Siong has resigned barely five months into the job.
NSP said in a statement today (June 17) that Mr Tan is stepping down to focus more on his passion for social and community work, and charitable pursuits while remaining as a congress member.
Earlier in January this year, Mr Tan was elected as NSP secretary-general, replacing fellow lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss.
"During his tenure as the Secretary-General of NSP, he has been energetic and resourceful, putting in place new initiatives and introducing new perspectives into the Party," Mr Sebastian Teo, President of the NSP 16th Central Executive Committee said.
"Whilst the Party is sad to lose him as our Sec-Gen, we would like to thank him for his contributions during this period, and wishes him all the best in his pursuits."
According to an earlier report by The Straits Times, Mr Tan is believed to have joined the party after the 2011 General Election.
