Chan Chun Sing & Lee Kuan Yew

PAP heavyweight Chan Chun Sing claims “I did not aim to be a Minister, I wanted to be a librarian”
“I did not aim to be a Minister, I wanted to be a librarian – it was a very logical choice.”

People’s Action Party (PAP) heavyweight Chan Chun Sing claimed that he “did not aim to be a Minister, I wanted to be a librarian” as he delivered the keynote address at the Public Service Commission (PSC) Scholarships Award Ceremony, last Wednesday (17 July).

Mr Chan, who serves as Minister for Trade and Industry, Minister-in-charge of the Public Service and second assistant secretary-general of the PAP, told the audience the story of why he joined the Public Service.

Revealing that he “did not join the Public Service because of some lofty ambition to change the world and bring Singapore to the next higher plane,” he said that he joined the Public Service because he needed a scholarship to further his studies.

MG Chan: "I'm not related to Mr Lee"

Major-General (MG) Chan Chun Sing, the Acting Community Development, Youth and Sports Minister, has denied rumours that he is related to Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

MG Chan told The Straits Times in an e-mail this week: 'I am not related to Mr Lee's family.'

He was addressing rumours that had started after a netizen posted a screenshot from RazorTV on a forum, which showed MG Chan standing behind members of Mr Lee's family at the funeral of Mr Lee's wife, Madam Kwa Geok Choo last October.
