GE2020: Another Paper General Expected to be Parachuted into PAP

Just how many paper generals does the PAP need? Since Pinky's own entry into politics as a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) scholar, the pattern of ownself select ownself has gone on and on and the number of paper generals in the party has been increasing. The latest addition to the "mix" is expected to be the country's first woman general (but not first woman paper general) Gan Siow Huang.

Covid19: Journalist Kirsten Han Concerned With TraceTogether Token

Covid19: Journalist Kirsten Han Concerned With TraceTogether Token

In a renewed attempt to implement this failed TraceTogether project, the government recently announced that Singaporeans will be issued with a wearable contact-tracing device. Minister of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Vivian Balakrishnan tried to reassure that the device only uses Bluetooth technology to exchange proximity information between devices. He claims there is no GPS in the token and it will not track users' locations. Yet again this proposed token faced mounting concerns about privacy and surveillance. Among those voices was journalist Kirsten Han who came up with various questions about the token.

PSP Leong Mun Wai: Covid19 Speeches By Lee Hsien Loong And Lawrence Wong Lack Substance

PSP Leong Mun Wai: Covid19 Speeches By Lee Hsien Loong And Lawrence Wong Lack Substance

On 10 June, Leong Mun Wai called out the speeches by Lee Hsien Loong and Lawrence Wong as being "far short of substance" especially when Singaporeans were hoping to find answers to soothe their anxieties caused by Covid19. Instead Leong Mun Wai raised 10 points which Lee Hsien Loong or Lawrence Wong could have addressed instead of spewing out empty rhetoric.

GE2020: Should S'pore Continue To Trust A PAP Team Without Foresight?

In his speech yesterday, PM Lee took credit for keeping the number of fatalities in Singapore low. That the number of fatalities is low reflects on the diligence of our nurses, doctors and other essential workers in our healthcare sector. How can our leaders take credit for keeping the fatalities here low, but not take responsibility for the number of infected persons in Singapore which is nearing the 40,000 new cases mark?

GE2020: Half Of Singapore's Covid19 Cases Asymptomatic But Still Want GE?

GE2020: Half Of Singapore's Covid19 Cases Asymptomatic But Still Want GE?

Lawrence Wong finally admitted to reporters on 8 June 2020 that at least half of Singapore's Covid19 cases show no symptoms. In their usual manner, Lawrence Wong and the Covid19 Ministerial Task Force did not disclose how many of the confirmed cases were asymptomatic. What is more startling is that Elections Department (ELD) announced some measures for safe voting on the same day. If the PAP decides to hold a General Elections this year, which many speculate is in July 2020, Singaporean voters may go to the polls while Covid19 is potentially still around.

GE2020: SDP Proposes Changes To Ensure Fair Campaigning Rules

GE2020: SDP Proposes Changes To Ensure Fair Campaigning Rules

Facing mounting pressure by repeated calls from various opposition parties, the Elections Department (ELD) finally announced some campaign guidelines if the GE was held amid the Covid19 pandemic. However, the announcement did not appear to offer any concrete rules for campaigning as ELD was still concerned with the developing Covid19 situation and how rules may be "overtaken by events". With the predicted GE2020 to be announced in July, the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) laid out some proposals to campaigning rules such that this GE will provide fair exposure and reach for all Parties.

GE2020: ELD's Reasons For Not Announcing Campaigning Rules Do Not Stand Up To Scrutiny!

How can the ELD say that there will be enough time for all candidates, especially the opposition, to prepare for their physical campaign strategies when the ELD does not know, and is not supposed to know when the elections will be called? Only Lee Hsien Loong decides when to call for elections. Unless the ELD is in cahoots with LHL about when the elections will be held?

Is the 7-20 June Series of National Broadcasts a Series of PAP Rally Speeches?

Under normal circumstances, nobody really gives two shits about a PAP rallies. However, COVID-19 has made many Singaporeans start tuning in attentively to the Prime Minister's broadcasts. Seizing the opportunity, the PAP rolled out a series of "national broadcasts" about the post-covid-19 future from 7 to 20 June which looks suspiciously like an election rally schedule.

People's Voice Party Made Right Judgment Calls For Covid19

People's Voice Party Made Right Judgment Calls For Covid19

Secretary-General of People's Voice Party (PVP) Lim Tean had cautioned against the reopening of schools a week before 2 June 2020. It looks like PVP was proven right when state media reported four students and one school employee tested positive for Covid19. Lim Tean reminds voters that PVP has been the only Party that has been right about Covid19 since February 2020, and he attributed these right judgment calls because PVP, unlike the PAP, has been putting People First!
