'Consider what compassionate meritocracy entails'

Former top civil servant Lim Siong Guan called for a deeper consideration of what being compassionate meant, after “compassionate meritocracy” became the latest buzzword following last month’s People’s Action Party convention. The ruling party had adopted a set of resolutions then, including upholding an open and compassionate meritocracy that gives equal opportunities to all.
