PARLIAMENTARY BY-ELECTIONS 1967
The final batch of walkouts from Parliament involved BS legislators Koo Young, Ms Loh Miaw Gong, Ong Lian Teng, Poh Ber Liak and Tan Cheng Tong on 5 December 1966. This left BS with only two seats occupied by Chan Sun Wing (Nee Soon) and Wong Soon Fong (Toa Payoh), both whom had fled the country to avoid arrest. Only one out of five constituencies was contested by two independents. With PAP victorious in the seat, it effectively left the legislature with only PAP Members of Parliament.
