Clad in a PSP shirt, Mr. Lee Hsien Yang was seen having a breakfast meeting with Dr. Tan Cheng Bock—leader of PSP—at Tiong Bahru Market this morning, 24 June 2020.

Based on other media sources, Dr. Tan shared that:

“Hsien Yang joined the party some time ago, but things delayed due to COVID-19. You’ll find out when he is ready”

However, it is uncertain if he is contesting in the upcoming General Election 2020.
