Singapore is buzzing with news of the upcoming General Elections. Political campaigns are already in full swing despite the uncertainties surrounding the timeline of the election, many estimate that it may be held this September. If you don't follow politics and don't know which party to vote for, perhaps these candidates' good looks may bend you in favor of their political parties.
1. Baey Yam Keng
Baey is definitely bae material. The 44-year-old People's Action Party politician exudes that Andy Lau charm and charisma Asian guys can only dream of having, and girls can only wish their Asian boyfriends have. He has stood up for equality, asking the government to repeal the antiquated 377A anti-sodomy colonial law. This handsome Member of Parliament represents Tampines GRC, but before all you ladies (and maybe men too, we don't judge) pack up and move to Tampines, just keep in mind that yummy Yam Keng is already spoken for by a wife and three kids.
2. Kevryn Lim
National Solidarity Party's new poster girl is 26 year old Kevryn Lim who graduated with a BA in Mass Communications. She also modelled and dabbled a bit in fashion design when she was in Hong Kong for a year. The Singapore netosphere exploded in controversy ever since she was revealed to the public as an NSP candidate. There are rumors circulating around, especially in Hardwarezone
, that she used to do nude photoshoots. Many question her ability as a candidate having no prior experience with politics, while some (mostly men) are excited to vote for this ex-model, but it still remains to be seen whether she is just a pretty face for NSP or actually has something substantial to bring to the table.
3. Tin Pei Ling
Tin Pei Ling is like the lovable girl-next-door that everybody wants to make friends with. Don't let her demure looks fool you though, this little lady can give any old-timer politican a run for their money. The appeal behind this 32-year-old PAP MP in the Marine Parade GRC is her affable nature, cute disposition and sweet face, but it is also the things that she has done as an MP that have won over many hearts and minds. Ms. Tin has worked hard to serve her residents since the last GE and have accomplished quite remarkable feats that you can read about here
4. Glenda Han
There is a saying that women are like fine wine and only get better with age. Worker's Party member Glenda Han proves the saying to be true. A cosmopolitan and talented entrepreneur, her earlier life consisted of travelling all around the world while handling an online business and taking on various part time jobs. She later returned to Singapore where she set up a high-end cocktail bar, Les Chameaux, at Robertson Quay. She then discovered a passion for politics and joined the WP where in GE 2006, the team won 33.9% of the votes against the Prime Minister's PAP team in Ang Mo Kio GRC. She went to Hong Kong on a hiatus after she was posted there as a money broker, and also established her own line of body care products. She eventually returned to her homeland again where she stood as a candidate in GE 2011 where WP won 45.17% in the East Coast GRC and an NCMP seat in the Parliament. This 38-year-old woman is reminiscent of the femme fatales in spy movies; a beautiful force to be reckoned with, and she is ready to kick some ass in this upcoming GE.
5. Teo Ser Luck
Teo Ser Luck, 47, may not possess that sexy bad-boy look, but one has to admit that he looks every part of a dignified gentleman. This PAP MP has represented the Pasir Ris – Punggol GRC since 2006. His preppy good looks goes hand in hand with being the former President of the Old Victorians' Association (the alumni body for Victoria School and Victoria Junior College). Besides being an outstanding politician, he is also a part-time hunk; he participates in triathlons and marathons when he is not busy taking care of state affairs and has completed four Ironman races. Back in his hey-day, he used to be a part-time model. Apparently good looks run in the Teo family as his older sister, Teo Ser Lee, is a former beauty queen. Bachelors and bachelorettes looking to luck out with Teo Ser Luck will be in for a disappointment as he is happily married with two children.
