The Singapore Democratic Partys (SDP) Bryan Lim Boon Heng has revealed that K-Pop girl bands help him in the grueling work of settling election expenses, in a recent social media post.

Mr Lim is in charge of overseeing the submission of election expense reports to the Elections Department. Revealing that he has been at the task of settling the partys accounts over the past three weeks, Mr Lim said that the work is so overwhelming that he was not even able to help out with party chief Chee Soon Juans recent Chee-sy Mashed Potatoes grassroots fundraiser.

He wrote on Facebook, on 2 Aug: I cant help out with Dr Chee Soon Juan s Bukit Batok grassroots fundraiser as I have to focus on settling the Partys accounts over this precious long weekend.

Been at it for the past 3 weeks as there has been an overwhelming number of accounting entries. I also have to help our election agents compile the candidates election expenses reports for submission to Elections Department in 2 weeks time.
