SINGAPORE: Dr Janil Puthucheary has been reappointed as the People’s Action Party’s (PAP) party whip, while Ms Sim Ann will continue as its deputy party whip, the PAP said in a news release on Wednesday (Aug 19).

Dr Puthucheary has served as the party whip since Jun 6, 2019. He was previously assisted by both Ms Sim and Mr Zaqy Mohamad.  

Alongside this role, Dr Puthucheary is also Senior Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Communications and Information and was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC.

Ms Sim is Senior Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Information and Ministry of National Development and was also elected MP for Holland-Bukit Timah GRC.

Separately, the Government Parliamentary Committees (GPCs) have been formed, said the PAP in its media release, announcing the full list of committees.

These committees - set up by the PAP in 1987 - serve as an "additional feedback channel on government policies on behalf of the people”, the party said.

“It also provides an opportunity for members to scrutinise the legislation and programmes of the various ministries."

The appointments to the GPCs will be effective with the commencement of the 14th Parliament of Singapore, which opens with the President's Address next Monday.
