Leon Perera Biography
Leon Perera has been the Member of Parliament (MP) representing the Serangoon division of Aljunied GRC since 2020.
Before running as a candidate, Perera was a Workers’ Party grassroots activist in the Paya Lebar ward of Aljunied GRC.
During the 2015 general election, Perera contested in a four-member team of the Worker’s Party team in East Coast GRC. His team received 39.27% of the votes cast, with the governing People’s Action Party garnering 60.73% of votes to win the GRC.
The Workers’ Party team was the best performing opposition team, so one of the team members was eligible to take up a Non-constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) seat. The Workers’ Party thus nominated Perera to be a NCMP in the 13th.
He was active in civil society before joining party politics. He served on the committee of local human rights organisation Maruah, was the Vice President of migrant worker rights organisation HOME, and was an adviser to alternative news website The Independent.
