Yee Jenn Jong (Chinese: 余振忠; pinyin: Yú Zhèn Zhōng, born 24 March 1965) was a Non-constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) of the 12th Parliament of Singapore. He is currently a self-styled education entrepreneur & consultant, as well as the founder of The Learning Grid and 360 Education.
Yee first stepped into the political world in 2011 contesting in the Joo Chiat Single Member Constituency (Joo Chiat SMC) against Charles Chong from the People's Action Party. Although he lost marginally with 48.99% of the votes, he finished as the second best loser in an election whereby less than 9 non-ruling party Members of Parliament (MPs) made it to parliament and was entitled to an NCMP position in the 12th Parliament of Singapore. It was confirmed by Workers' Party on 13 May 2011 that Yee would be taking up the NCMP position. With Yee taking up the NCMP position together with Gerald Giam, Workers' Party set a new record in the Singapore's post-independence political arena becoming the first non-ruling party to have 8 (6 MP + 2 NCMP) seats in parliament.
