The scandal prompted Ms. Lim’s Facebook profile to be turned private after David Ong’s resignation. The Prime Minister’s Office recognized David Ong’s contributions as an MP and to his constituency. The scandal surrounding his extramarital affair forced him to resign from Parliament.

David Ong apologized and sought privacy for himself and his family during recovery. The incident necessitated a Bukit Batok single-seat ward by-election to replace David. The PAP and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong acknowledged the need for a democratic process and constituent input on a new representative.
