NSP’s Goh Meng Seng to leave party

Former secretary-general of the National Solidarity Party (NSP), Goh Meng Seng, revealed that he will no longer be with the party as he will allow his membership to lapse by year-end.

In a blog post titled “Journey Forward” published on Thursday, Goh, 41, said he has formally informed the party’s president and current secretary-general, Hazel Poa, of his decision.

Explaining his move, Goh said in his blog, “Personally, I guess it is time for me to move on to another journey of uncharted waters. Many of my friends and close associates thought that I am quitting politics for good but, no, this is not so.”

While he hinted of plans to be involved in other non-partisan related matters, Goh said he will make the announcement at a later time when “things are firm”.

Goh could not be reached when Yahoo! Singapore tried to contact him.

In June this year, he had relinquished his secretary-general position and also stepped down from the party’s central executive committee (CEC) but remained as a congress member.
