I have read lots of articles requesting Mr LHY to join the Opposition. Although it is not entirely impossible, he will most likely not join the opposition because he is the son of Lee Kuan Yew, the man with many enemies in the opposition.
But I have another suggestion though and that is for Mr LHY to contest GE2020 or PE 2022. For GE 2017, even if the expert opinion of Law Lord Pannick prevails over those of the trainee AG and we remove the reserved election, our well loved Dr Tan Cheng Bock will still not be able to qualify because he does not have a $500 million networth!
But Mr LHY will qualify even if it’s inflated to 1 billion and this is what he seriously needs to consider to rectify the siblings claims of rampant corruption and abuse of power in Singapore.
If he runs in GE2020, he will be able to form a separate party or even split the PAP between his brother’s loyalists and those fighting for change. If he runs in PE 2017 or 2022, the powers of an elected President are far more reaching than any MP who is unable to protect his/her Constituent from the unjust decisions of the PAP led government and their appointed AG!
Running away or denying will not help solve problems. Lee Hsien Yang, you are the only hope for Singapore.
