Tan Chuan-Jin comments on recent Cabinet reshuffle

SINGAPORE - Political service does not depend on appointments, Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said in a Facebook post on Saturday.

This was his first comment following the recent Cabinet reshuffle.

He relinquished his appointment as Senior Minister of State for National Development on Sunday.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Wednesday that the changes to Mr Tan's appointments was so he could "concentrate on his responsibility" at the Manpower Ministry as "taking on two portfolios is too heavy", reported The Straits Times online.
