That’s all folks
The rally is over. Everyone is dispersing quickly from UOB Plaza.
Longest-serving female MP spotted in the crowd
Former MP for Holland-Bukit Timah GRC Yu-Foo Yee Shoon, who retired from politics in April after 27 years, was spotted in the crowd listening to the rally with some friends.
Despite the difficulties ahead, I’m convinced our best days are ahead of us.
I will encourage Singaporeans to strike out with new ventures and ideas. Even if they fail they can try again and eventually they will succeed.
We can do more to help people with ideas from all ages and sectors to make them a reality.
I’m offering my background, experience and steady temperament to Singapore once again.
Dr Tan’s wife is in the crowd too, though she is nowhere near the front of the stage. She waves back to Mrs Yu Foo Yee Shoon, who is standing nearby.
When I meet Singaporeans the same question comes up again and again, when there is a crisis is my job safe?
