LEE LI LIAN: THIS IS WHY I REJECTED THE FULL-TIME NCMP ROLE

I was in Parliament this afternoon to clear my cupboard. This particular book was especially memorable. I delivered my maiden speech on this and although there were butterflies in my stomach, I was glad that I was able to speak up on this topic.

30% ANTI-PAP VOTERS SHOULD SHUT UP & STOP BEING A SORE LOSER

Pardon for my poor English but I really cannot stand it anymore. Nowadays when I open facebook app, I would see several posts about people scolding voters of PAP. Regardless of cpf, erp, gst, foreign employees and even the haze, they would say it is because of those voters and mind them "don't complain" in the future. But excuse me, ironically aren't you yourself who voted for PAP as well?

ABSOLUTELY FAIR FOR PAP BEST LOSER VICTOR LYE TO BE DEPRIVED OF NCMP SEAT

I am truly disturbed by an All Singapore Stuff contributor’s insistence for Victor Lye to be awarded the post of an NCMP (Member of Parliament for Non-Constituency) and beg to differ with his apparent justification and reasoning. Furthermore, such a proposal also goes against the fundamental purpose of the NCMP scheme, which is to guarantee a minimum number of opposition Members of Parliament to check against the dominant ruling party

I AM THE 30% WHO VOTED AGAINST PAP, I DID IT FOR SINGAPORE'S FUTURE

My dear newly elected PAP government, my ballot number is #1147, I voted in Tampines GRC, and I'm among the 30% nation-wide that didn't vote for you yesterday. Trust us, you say. We are our own checks, you say. Yes, the 30% may trust you, but we have cops and auditors in this world, for good reason. If you start reining in your own dominance, then us 30% can actually start voting for the best candidate/s. How to start? You know how. It's only whether you want to curb yourself, or not.

NCMP SCHEME IS DISCRIMINATORY & UNMERITOCRATIC AGAINST GE2015 BEST LOSER VICTOR LYE

Lee Li Lian is NOT the best loser of this GE! The best loser is fireman Victor Lye who led an all-star team to win 49.05% of the votes in Aljunied GRC, nearly defeating the incumbent WP 'A' team. It is NOT meritocratic to deny Victor Lye the NCMP seat! So what if he is from PAP? He is the true best loser! With his many talents he has much to contribute in parliament!

UNHAPPY VOTERS IN PUNGGOL EAST DEMANDING A BY-ELECTION?

A local netizen posted this piece of news on popular forum Hardwarezone. He says that rumours have been spreading about a group of unhappy opposition voters who want the government to launch a by-election for Punggol East because they feel their votes were unfairly counted.

PAP'S STRONG MANDATE IS A SECOND CHANCE TO GAIN S'POREANS TRUST

PAP can, and should, take the strong mandate from S'poreans as a second chance to perform well. A second chance to score As at the exam. It is good that PAP feels humbled by their win. It is good that PAP says the strong mandate will make them work doubly hard. This strong mandate is NOT a seal of approval that they can continue with their current policies unchecked, such as the 6.9 mil Population White Paper. PAP should take this strong mandate as a chance to put the wrongs right.

S'PORE STRAWBERRY GENERATION BRAINWASHED SO BAD, THEY VOTED PAP INTO POWER AGAIN

After reading the reactions on GE2015 from people in my generation on my social media. I fear the battle is not over for this generation, and I will live to see meaningful changes in my lifetime. I am a 24 year old individual. I feel very sad that my peers are brainwashed so badly.

THE OPPOSITION IS NOT DEAD BY ANY MEANS, WE WILL CARRY ON!

In the last three days since the GE results, several activists have wondered aloud to me if it is worth carrying on doing what they do. The GE results, while of course the PAP and its supporters will cheer, have nonetheless cast a cloud of uncertainty among some. Why carry on fighting for change when the vast majority of Singaporeans seem to want no change? I think it is worth noting that there is no widespread sense of jubilation or excitement among Singaporeans as a reaction to the results, as there were after GE 2011 when the WP won Aljunied GRC. Or in 1991 when the WP again won Hougang. Or Anson in 1981.
