Heng Says Singapore Together Is New Singapore Way, Conveniently Just Before Elections Period

Heng Says Singapore Together Is New Singapore Way, Conveniently Just Before Elections Period

All these talks are conveniently timed to seamlessly portray the Government as very open minded and working hand-in-hand with Singaporeans. Heng did not comment on the fact that GST will be raised in the near future, nor about the Reserved Presidency Election, nor on POFMA, or on the proposed 10m population, or CECA, or even about the rising in transportation, electricity and water bills, amongst many others. And these key policy changes were effected by the government without getting the thoughts of ordinary Singaporeans.

SDP Questions What And How The PAP Have Improved Singaporeans' Lives Since 2015

GOVT ALWAYS THOUGHT PAKISTANI AND INDIAN MUSLIMS ARE MALAY ALSO

Government wants to reserve the President for a Malay, cos we have not had one for a long time. But by doing this, you are saying Malays cannot contest on their own merits. Govt must hand hold them, and let Malays challenge the not so Malays, and the winner would be a Malay. What kind of logic is that?

FAS ELECTION SWEEPING TEETHING PROBLEMS UNDER THE CARPET

Whoever wins this election, it will be a hollow victory. After the accusations and counter accusations, which finally led to the CAD taking further actions in the donations saga, as well as revealing whata farce the FAS is in, as they have no control over the football clubs they are supposed to oversee.

And now, another promise from the Team LTK, who indicated that they will listen to their affiliates and make changes for the better of Singapore football. They are also a joke. A team made up of mostly Council members of the FAS, they don't even know what is happening in the association. Council members in name only, then?

These so-called football administrators have never listened to the ground before, what makes them think they can change? Another election tactics of promising everything good, but reverting to type once elected? They had managed to let the professional league turn from a big national project to a professional league that one hardly ever watch. And Singaporeans favourite sport is football. If you don't even want to watch your favourite sport live with easy access to stadiums, then that is total gross mismanagement of the sports.

MINISTER TELLS FAS TO FOCUS ON FOOTBALL, NOT POWER FOR THEIR ELECTIONS. SO FUNNY!

The government takes a very hands-on approach when it comes to FAS. In fact, preciously, all FAS presidents were specially appointed by the government, and not elected like they will do this year. As usual, government wants control over everything. Minister Fu said that the focus in the elections would be to improve Singapore's no 1 sport. This election is supposed to be all about football, making it a priority, and not about who gets the power to run the sports body.

So rich, coming from the Minister. After all, during the General elections, didn't you all promise that this is all about making Singaporean's life better? So, after you win, how did you make Singaporeans life better? By increasing almost everything, like water, S&CC, transport fares? Talk is cheap.

CURIOUS CHANGES PAP MADE AFTER EVERY ELECTORAL SETBACK

After Low Thia Khiang won Hougang in 1991 and the SDP won 3 constituencies, they increased the size of GRCs from 3-4 to 5-6 in the 1997 GE. After the WP won Aljunied in 2011, they announced yet-to-be-revealed changes to the Town Council Act. After President Ong Teng Cheong became president in 1993 and questioned them about the reserves, they went back and changed the Constitutional powers of the Elected President in 1994

WP BERNARD CHEN: CHEN SHOW MAO'S CHALLENGE FOR SEC-GEN POST SHOW WP HAS NO GROUPTHINK

Time and again, it is disappointing to read of many "party sources" who have spoken to the media on the condition of anonymity. Hope they are not existing members or cadres of the Party. WP is at the end of the day, a team. We look out for one another, work together, cry together and cheer together. For the sake of Singapore's future, WP cannot and must not fail. Renewal is on track and together, we continue to grow into an organisation that can one day become a government-in-waiting.

HUMAN RIGHTS NGO: PAP MUST STOP THE MUDSLINGING AGAINST DR CHEE

Parts of the campaign are currently degenerating into a sloganeering on the character of Dr Chee Soon Juan, the SDP candidate. As election campaign watchers, MARUAH, a human rights group, would like to put on record that this is a disappointing approach taken on by the ruling party. In this Bukit Batok by-election, however, there seems to be a targeted barrage on Dr Chee’s past behaviour. In politics there are many candidates who will be judged at the ballot box and later as MPs. In conclusion MARUAH asks again for an Independent Elections Commission, not one under the Prime Minister’s Office.

ANOTHER READER DEFENDS SHIRWIN EU AGAINST CRITICISMS THAT HE WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

It is unfair for Mr Sagar to say that one who is truly worthy and deserving can easily obtain $13,500 a month because it implies that anyone who cannot obtain $13,500 a month is unworthy and undeserving. But $13,500 is way above Singapore median income. Mr Sagar is essentially saying that only the rich in Singapore are worthy and deserving enough to contest in elections. Ordinary folks earning less than $13,500 are unworthy. That is a terrible attitude to have.
