NMPs Propose Amendments To Fake News Bill, Want To Have Independent Council To Oversee Decision Makers

3 NMPs have filed a Notice of Amendment to the POFMA in which they outlined various improvements they want to see in the Bill. They proposed that the relevant Minister must explain why something is considered a falsehood and why certain actions have to be taken. They also suggested for an independent council to oversee the decision-making process so that online falsehoods can be countered better and fairer. The next Parliament sitting is on 6 May. Will the people in power bother to listen? Singaporeans will wait and see.

EX-NMP CALVIN CHENG: GVT SHOULD NOT BE FUNDING ART, LEAVE THAT TO PRIVATE DONORS

Ex-NMP Calvin Cheng thinks that the Government should stay out of making decisions on whether they should be funding art. This is especially since the government will receive backlash anyway - if it wants to fund, it has to come up with strict criteria but if it does not fund, it will be accused of censorship. What do you think?

NMP KOK TALKS COCK LIKE PAP, SILLY NMP WASTING OUR TAX DOLLARS

I also heard all the NMPs voted to support this in Parliament. They are all like PAP MPs, pretend to debate like their lives depend on it but in the end wasted everyone’s time because the outcome has always been a foregone conclusion. Now I understand the true meaning of WAYANG. In this case, there’s one NMP who loves to talk cock like PAP. First he wanted to propose amendments but later do U-turn and said Minister Shanmugam convinced him that our system got checks and balances. KNN can you believe this joker actually think like that?

CHEE HONG TAT: WP MPS ARE ONLY FULL OF SOUND & FURY UNLIKE NMPS WHO GIVE SUBSTANCE TO DEBATE

The WP MPs and NCMPs were full of sound and fury. Even after the Law Minister clarified the government’s position and provided clear answers to their questions, the WP insisted on sticking to their own mistaken interpretation of the Bill. In the end, they chose to vote against the Bill. The WP could have proposed any number of amendments if they wanted to improve the Bill. But they didn't suggest a single amendment. So it makes me wonder, what is the WP really trying to achieve?

ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL: ALL 9 NMPS SHD BE REMOVED

The 9 NMP seats should be removed. Their performance in Parliament clearly demonstrated by the passage of the Administration of Justice Bill, shows that they are not just "duckweeds" but plastic, decorative flowers. Convert the NMP seats to NCMP seats and combine with the 3 existing NCMP seats to allocate a total of 12 seats without the present caps on the basis of opposition popular vote.

NMP KUIK: S'POREANS CAN STILL SPEAK UP ON CURRENT ISSUES DESPITE ADMIN OF JUSTICE BILL

My perspective and reasons may be different from the other 2 NMPs but we were all in agreement about what was the most strategic collective decision.
In a nutshell though, if you are worried that you cannot speak up on current issues on FB, whatsapp, coffeeshops etc. stuff now that the law is in place, you need not be worried. Whatever you want to speak up on, keep speaking up on it without fear. If you see an injustice, speak. If you see a cruelty, speak. Singapore is a better place if we courageously speak up on the things we love and want to protect.

PASSING OF ADMIN OF JUSTICE BILL SHOWS OUR NMPS ARE SPINELESS UNRELIABLE FOLKS

Singapore, if you think you can count on NMPs to speak for you, see for yourself what happened today. They will bring your petition to the House, withdraw it, and then vote in favour for the very Bill they were petitioning against, without any amendments to it whatsoever. Very reliable folks indeed. Spineless. Pretentious. And so much less.

PETITION FOR DR LEE WEILING TO BECOME NMP, BE OUR VOICE OF CONSCIENCE IN PARLIAMENT

I refer to your postings on Dr Lee Wei Ling regarding several controversial issues she raised, in which she used strong words through social media to describe the rot that has begun to cement since GE 2015 right up until now: I would like to urge all Singaporeans to rally and submit another petition through NMP Koh Heng Leun to nominate her for a NMP seat in the second half of this parliamentary term since she alleges that almost all Singaporeans and MPs on both divides have failed us.

NMP KOK HENG LEUN SUBMITS PETITION ON ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE (PROTECTION) BILL

Nominated Member of Parliament Kok Heng Leun on Wednesday 10 August 2016 submitted a Public Petition on the Administration of Justice (Protection) Bill. The petition was signed by 249 Singaporeans. It is the first time in nine years that a Public Petition has been submitted to Parliament – the last petition was submitted by then-Nominated Member of Parliament Siew Kum Hong in 2007 seeking a repeal of S377A of the Penal Code.

The Don’t Kena Contempt campaign welcomes efforts to protect the judiciary, and agrees that the integrity of legal proceedings and the maintenance of public confidence are essential. In particular, we welcome the sections that set out prohibitions on interferences with parties, witnesses and advocates, as well as insults or interruptions to court proceedings.
