FAS ELECTION SWEEPING TEETHING PROBLEMS UNDER THE CARPET

Whoever wins this election, it will be a hollow victory. After the accusations and counter accusations, which finally led to the CAD taking further actions in the donations saga, as well as revealing whata farce the FAS is in, as they have no control over the football clubs they are supposed to oversee.

And now, another promise from the Team LTK, who indicated that they will listen to their affiliates and make changes for the better of Singapore football. They are also a joke. A team made up of mostly Council members of the FAS, they don't even know what is happening in the association. Council members in name only, then?

These so-called football administrators have never listened to the ground before, what makes them think they can change? Another election tactics of promising everything good, but reverting to type once elected? They had managed to let the professional league turn from a big national project to a professional league that one hardly ever watch. And Singaporeans favourite sport is football. If you don't even want to watch your favourite sport live with easy access to stadiums, then that is total gross mismanagement of the sports.

MINISTER TELLS FAS TO FOCUS ON FOOTBALL, NOT POWER FOR THEIR ELECTIONS. SO FUNNY!

The government takes a very hands-on approach when it comes to FAS. In fact, preciously, all FAS presidents were specially appointed by the government, and not elected like they will do this year. As usual, government wants control over everything. Minister Fu said that the focus in the elections would be to improve Singapore's no 1 sport. This election is supposed to be all about football, making it a priority, and not about who gets the power to run the sports body.

So rich, coming from the Minister. After all, during the General elections, didn't you all promise that this is all about making Singaporean's life better? So, after you win, how did you make Singaporeans life better? By increasing almost everything, like water, S&CC, transport fares? Talk is cheap.

CURIOUS CHANGES PAP MADE AFTER EVERY ELECTORAL SETBACK

After Low Thia Khiang won Hougang in 1991 and the SDP won 3 constituencies, they increased the size of GRCs from 3-4 to 5-6 in the 1997 GE. After the WP won Aljunied in 2011, they announced yet-to-be-revealed changes to the Town Council Act. After President Ong Teng Cheong became president in 1993 and questioned them about the reserves, they went back and changed the Constitutional powers of the Elected President in 1994

WP BERNARD CHEN: CHEN SHOW MAO'S CHALLENGE FOR SEC-GEN POST SHOW WP HAS NO GROUPTHINK

Time and again, it is disappointing to read of many "party sources" who have spoken to the media on the condition of anonymity. Hope they are not existing members or cadres of the Party. WP is at the end of the day, a team. We look out for one another, work together, cry together and cheer together. For the sake of Singapore's future, WP cannot and must not fail. Renewal is on track and together, we continue to grow into an organisation that can one day become a government-in-waiting.

HUMAN RIGHTS NGO: PAP MUST STOP THE MUDSLINGING AGAINST DR CHEE

Parts of the campaign are currently degenerating into a sloganeering on the character of Dr Chee Soon Juan, the SDP candidate. As election campaign watchers, MARUAH, a human rights group, would like to put on record that this is a disappointing approach taken on by the ruling party. In this Bukit Batok by-election, however, there seems to be a targeted barrage on Dr Chee’s past behaviour. In politics there are many candidates who will be judged at the ballot box and later as MPs. In conclusion MARUAH asks again for an Independent Elections Commission, not one under the Prime Minister’s Office.

ANOTHER READER DEFENDS SHIRWIN EU AGAINST CRITICISMS THAT HE WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

It is unfair for Mr Sagar to say that one who is truly worthy and deserving can easily obtain $13,500 a month because it implies that anyone who cannot obtain $13,500 a month is unworthy and undeserving. But $13,500 is way above Singapore median income. Mr Sagar is essentially saying that only the rich in Singapore are worthy and deserving enough to contest in elections. Ordinary folks earning less than $13,500 are unworthy. That is a terrible attitude to have.

ALJUNIED RESIDENT: MURALI ABANDONED US AND FAILED TO KEEP HIS PROMISES!

Now that Murali has decided to abandon us for a shot at the high part-time salaried post, what has become of the promises he and his fellow teammates for that matter, made to us? Was it just in vain? No matter what the outcome of the BE is, my neighbors and I have already decided to cast our lots with the Mr Low Thia Khiang instead of Victor Lye at the next GE as their insincerity and dishonesty have seriously put us off to a point of no return.

BUKIT BATOK RESIDENT: BARRIER AT PATHWAY IS EYESORE AND INCONVENIENT FOR ELDERLY ON WHEELCHAIR

I stay in Bukit Batok and I want to complain about this stupid barrier that can be seen in certain parts of the estate. It is an eyesore and it is rather difficult to navigate. This is unnecessary inconvenience to elderly residents and those using wheelchair. Furthermore it is impractical and is a waste of money by the town council we are paying.

EX-WP CANDIDATE: PRITAM SINGH IS A CLOWN FOR SUGGESTING MINDEF ALSO CHARGE FOR PARKING

By making NSMen to pay for parking space in camps is totally a bad idea. Firstly, most camps do have parking lots reserved for NSMen to park their vehicles during their call-ups. Do Mr Pritam Singh or WP do their call-ups before? Secondly, have he or WP made a comparison of the number of vehicle parked in camps and schools? Now more and more clowns are talking points without having considerations to the People. Mr Pritam Singh and WP is now showing that they are just incapable in having "debates" for the People. Next GE, WP Aljunied may fall completely with such clowns voted in.
