GE2020: Parties Given Sufficient Time Before Parliament Dissolved?

GE2020: Parties Given Sufficient Time Before Parliament Dissolved?

In a sudden national broadcast, PM Lee Hsien Loong announced on 23 June 4pm that he had advised President Halimah Yacob to dissolve Parliament. He gave excuses why the GE2020 should be called before April 2021, citing reasons like Covid19 and the threat of external uncertainties. This paves way for Singapore to see GE2020 Polling Day to be on 10 July. Given how political parties and candidates only had 5 days between 18 June and 23 June when Parliament is dissolved, it seems the PAP thinks that having a preparation time of less than a week is "sufficient".

GE2020: Tin Pei Ling Kpkb About Doctored Banner Again

As if one police report was not enough, Kate Spade princess Tin Pei Ling made a second police report about the doctored Chinese New Year banner apparently because it started circulating again. Mind you, it was a CNY banner so that was half a year ago since the first report. How coincidental that she is making a police report when elections is just around the corner.

GE2020: MSM Smears Peoples Voice Party Lim Tean Over Bankruptcy Claims

The 158th state media published a story about Peoples Voice Party (PVP) Secretary-General Lim Tean facing two bankruptcy applications over $1.45 million. Later that night, Lim Tean responded to this smear article with a Facebook post "When You Fear, You Smear!". Lim Tean rubbished ST's claims about him about to become bankrupted, clarifying that "Let me make it clear. I am not going to be bankrupted, and it is total rubbish that I owe $1 450 000!" He even shared how ST faked that they tried calling him for comments because he never received any calls or queries.

GE2020: Is Tan Wu Meng So Desperate To Win That He Has To Resort To Playing Racial Politics?

"This man grew up in Singapore. Singapore gave him his education and he earns a living here. An education and a living that is denied to many minorities in the region." Somehow Tan seems to be insinuating that Alfian, as a minority, should be grateful for having been done the special favour of receiving an education from the benevolent majority, as if Singaporean minorities need the goodwill of the benevolent majority to be given an education, as if that goodwill is contingent on Singaporean minorities being subservient and toeing the line.

GE2020: Why the Double Standards in Enforcing Safe Distancing Rules between PAP and PSP?

Why is it that when PSP members did their walkabout yesterday at Bukit Batok, 2 safe distancing officers told them that they will be fined for breaching safe distancing rules? This is in phase 2, plus the PSP members clarified with the officers that they never had more than 5 people together.

GE2020: Smear Campaign Started Against Pritam Singh And Alfian Sa'at

GE2020: Smear Campaign Started Against Pritam Singh And Alfian Sa'at

With the General Elections being called soon, it appears that the PAP has started smear campaigns against opposition party members. During the Budget debate on 5 June, Pritam Singh said Singapore should be fortunate that we have citizens who are “loving critics”. Even though Pritam Singh did not name any specific person, Tan Wu Meng inferred that Pritam Singh had spoken in support of Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng then took this opportunity to smear Pritam Singh who had supposedly voiced support for Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng asked if Pritam Singh still thinks Alfian Sa'at is a "loving critic" of Singapore based on selected screenshots of Alfian's comments, and went a step further to accuse Pritam Singh of being a "loving critic" himself if he supports Alfian.

GE2020: SDP Member Reminds Taxpayers About The Consequences Of Budget 2020

GE2020: SDP Member Reminds Taxpayers About The Consequences Of Budget 2020

Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) member Fadly Azad wrote on his Facebook about Budget 2020. While Singaporeans should be thankful for the cash payouts, he reminded Singaporeans that the money handed out by the government actually came from taxpayers. Remember that one way which the government gets this money is by taxing us, and "whatever they give you now they will take it back sooner or later". With the General Elections looming closer, he calls for Singaporeans to vote wisely. We can either choose to vote in a government who cares more about money and treats its people as digits, or vote in a government that is more concerned about our welfare and well being.

Kumaran Pillai: Fringe Parties Recklessly Colliding With Larger Parties In 3-Cornered Fights

Kumaran Pillai: Fringe Parties Recklessly Colliding With Larger Parties In 3-Cornered Fights

Progress Singapore Party member Kumaran Pillai was asked by a few journalists about the state of opposition unity in the upcoming General Elections (GE). He answered that there is a loose alliance among the larger parties. These parties have a mutual respect and understanding to avoid 3-cornered fights. Kumaran Pillai also said that certain "fringe parties" have been very reckless by going on a head-on collision course. However he believes in democracy, and having a plurality of voices is a good thing. Therefore he still encourages all parties to contest in the GE if they really feel that they are bringing something extra to the table.
