GOVT DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH TEMASEK SUCCESSION PLANNING? SURE BOH?

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Indranee Rajah, the Senior Minister of State for Finance said in Parliament today that the Government does not interfere with the succession planning of Temasek leadership.She indicated that the state investment company operates as a commercial entity, and thus, the Government doe snot interfere with the management of Temasek.

Finding it hard to believe this statement though. Temasek is a STATE investment company, that in itself already shows that the government will hold some interest in it. If they don’t interefere with succession planning, then isn’t this a lack of responsibility on the government’s part?

Sure, the government will not interfere, but surely they might have some influential say? Is this just another wayang, send one not so important minister to go shoot her mouth in Parliament?
