News from 93.8 Live

This is what was broadcast in 93.8 Live:

Former Workers Party member announces plans to groom future political activists


A former senior member of the Workers Party has announced plans to groom future political activists.

Mr Goh Meng Seng, who quit WP over a posting he made on the Internet last November, is forming a group that will be under the ambit of a non-government organisation.

The group is aimed at aimed at cultivating young talent for future General Elections.

Members will be exposed to media and speech training, and be versed in political education and the running of a political campaign.

Speaking to 938LIVE, Mr Goh, who has since joined the National Solidarity Party, said opposition parties here need to have a systematic way to renew its leadership.

"Our aim is actually to build up the political system towards a more balanced system with more checks and balance and more political participation, so we actually have a systematic way of grooming future political leaders. It's not only for opposition, it's non-partisan in that sense."

The group is in its planning stage and is likely to be up later this year.

Mr Goh hopes to groom 84 candidates to fill all the contested seats in future elections.

The 37 year old will also work with NSP in developing the training programme.


Generally speaking, it is a very accurate report on my interview without much distortions.

I have chosen to break this news to 93.8Live exclusively basically because I think the broadcast journalist has shown sincerity. Furthermore, there will be less tendency of distortion due to the fact that they need to broadcast the original sound bites.

I think you do not understand the principles of a NGO like Think Centre. As far as Think Centre is concerned, it is non-partisan; meaning, any members of any party can join them and their activities. Yes, PAP members are welcome to.

If I am going to conduct the program under Think Centre structure, then I will naturally have to abide by their fundamental principles. Yes, technically speaking, PAP members could attend such program if they want to. I will not discriminate against PAP members. In fact, I will welcome them to share their experiences in running a campaign, if any. Why should I discriminate against them? I am not like PAP that will play pork barrel politics and engage in selfish divisive policies.

It just demonstrates how petty and narrow minded you are in putting up such comments. One must have a more altruistic approach rather than playing petty politics. Who knows? These PAP members who attended the program may just switch camp? ;)

I think you should take a look at yourself in the mirror before starting such a disgraceful program. All the PAP candidates are hand-picked and groomed by our leaders, they do not need a novice like you to teach them anything. On the other hand, you are just an outcast from the young PAP who joined WP and now even WP doesn't want you, you have no political future in Singapore, better stick to repairing PCs, moron.

Hahhahaah as far as think ctr is concerned but by ur actions and words u hv betrayed urself, pls do not hookwink us. Better come clean why u left WP before joining NSP. U disgraced the entire opposition.

Haahahha u welcome PAP members another outright lie by u sue me by all means. Cant even fool a 3 yr kid wana fool me. Since when in history people welcome their opponents. U might as well say Liu bang welcome xiangyu hahahaha.

Finally u admitted conducting this so called political courses under the guise of thinl ctr hahahah wonder how much fees u charging.

If opposition is indeed so noble then get Slyvia lim not to draw a single cent in salary when she served SPF. Ask Low this kiang served as a teacher without pay, since they cant do it dont expect PAP to do it.

I agree with you bro, this GMS has shown his true colors on internet forums where he has a very bad reputation amongst forumers well known for twisting his words and wriggling his way out of trouble. He can't be trusted.
