When young prominent activist and blogger Han Hui Hui took the stage at Hong Lim Park together with fellow rabble-rouser Roy Ngerng to fight for Central Provident Fund (CPF) issues over the past year, who would have thought that the pint-sized woman would then go on to take part in the General Election?
For those still in disbelief, you better believe that it’s real — Han Hui Hui even made her maiden rally yesterday at Tiong Bahru’s Delta Hockey Pitch as an independent candidate for the Radin Mas Single-Member constituency race. Hundreds dropped by her rally last night, some genuinely interested to hear what she had to say while others were just there to see a show and heckle the 24-year-old.

Her speech touched on housing, healthcare affordability and of course, CPF. She called out for lower prices for both flats and and hospital bills, both of which she claims to be discouraging Singaporeans from having families before launching a tirade against the rising CPF payout eligibility age.
Strangely enough, she only spoke for 20 minutes, and left the remainder of her rally’s one-and-a-half-hour’s duration to her guest speakers. Then she announced there was going to be a press conference over dinner at a hawker centre, which The New Paper said was 2.5km away.
Han also mentioned that she doesn’t mind losing her $14,500 deposit because what’s important to her is that she wants to raise issues for the residents of Radin Mas in Parliament. OK.
