By now, all Singaporeans should know that there’s a by-election going on in Bukit Batok SMC, and it’s going to be a straight fight between PAP’s Mr Murali Pillai and SDP’s Mr Chee Soon Juan.

But do you know that Mr Sherwin Eu, a 32-year-old Uber driver, also tried to be a candidate but failed?

In GE2015, Sherwin was disqualified in his bid to be a candidate in Bukit Panjang SMC as he did not have the required six signatures from the residents in his application.

And so, with the latest Bukit Batok by-election, he’s back and once again did not get the required six people to support him. Okay, that isn’t exactly that news-worthy…but wait till you hear what he says during a media interview.

Just in case you can’t view the video, here’s the transcript of the parts that would make you go, “Say what!?”

Why Presidential Election 2023 Will Start from June 2023 After President Halimah’s Announcemen:

Reporter: Maybe you can tell us why do you want to take part in this election?

Sherwin: I like to be elected. I like to enjoy the fame and wealth of this job prospect.

Reporter: What can you do for the residents here?

Sherwin: For the residents of Bukit Batok, I’m not sure what they really want. At this juncture, I do not know what I can offer. It depends on the demand and supply.


Reporter: What do you say about people who say that you’re in for the publicity?

Sherwin: I can’t deny that. I’m also asking myself this question. It could be for fame, it could be for wealth or it could be for justice.
