THARMAN: SOONER OR LATER, S’PORE WILL HAVE MINORITY PM, BUT IT WON’T BE ME

Speaking at a SG50+ conference today at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam told an eager audience that Singapore would eventually have a non-Chinese prime minister sooner or later, but it would not be him.

He says this is because he is not interested in the job, and current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is “fortunately very healthy”. He added that there is also already a group of younger candidates waiting in the wings.

This crop of people – those already in the fray, and those entering it – will provide Singapore’s future leadership, said Mr Tharman.
