Does Ho Ching Speak On Behalf Of The Government?


Granted, she's the PM's wife and privy to govt planning, but is she a minister or member of Parliament?

If not, then she should refrain from answering publicly posted questions that are meant for Govt agencies to answer. In many of the issues related to Covid, it's the duty of MOH to answer, not her. She can make suggestions and clarify whether she is writing it as just a personal opinion, not policy.

Because majority of Singaporeans cannot tell the difference. They see PM's wife, they automatically assume she can speak for him in official matters. But if the govt has other plans it can cause a conflict of interest.

What do you think?
