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: Did the Gov Open Phase 2 So They Can Hold Elections?

While many may rejoice at being able to resume their normal activities again, we need to question why the government is so eager to move into phase 2, especially after the 154 media keeps releasing new information about potential PAP candidates on the ground.

However, the same MTI minister Chan Chun Sing excused the Elections Department (ELD) saying that they have to explore various scenarios and rules due to the "evolving" Covid19 situation. When the ELD is ready, election candidates and parties will be given "sufficient time" to know the rules and regulations. If the GE is to be held on July 2020, does it seem ironic that the fate of the Grand Prix (which will be held later in September 2020) can be decided earlier than the announcement of GE campaign rules?

Chan Chun Sing Insists “Not Much Time” Left To Hold Next General Elections

During a Bloomberg TV interview, Minister for Trade and Industry (MTI) Chan Chun Sing told the interviewer there is "not much time" left for Singapore to hold its next General Elections.
