Results of Singapore Medical Council Election

The Singapore Medical Council (SMC) election was held over 5 days from 28 Oct to 1 Nov 98. Prof Chao Tzee Cheng and Dr Tan Kok Soo have been elected into the Council as they received the highest number of votes.

SMC announced, altogether 4,389 or 90.2% of the 4,866 fully-registered medical practitioners voted over the 5 days. This is a big improvement as compared with previous elections of the Council when only about 10% to 15% of the total number of eligible medical practitioners voted. For those who did not turn up for voting, the majority were overseas.

The Council of the Singapore Medical Association would like to send its heartiest congratulations to Prof Chao Tzee Cheng, who is an SMA Honorary Member; and Dr Tan Kok Soo, SMA Council Member and Past President; upon their election to the Singapore Medical Council.
