WILL SDP EMERGE AS A 3RD FORCE TO RIVAL WP OPPOSITION MONOPOLY?

Opposition supporters in GE2015 was too naive and hopeful for an opposition unity. In reality, the PAP wasn't the common enemy to every Opposition Party. The game was to maintain a canvass of white with a dash of blue was the final objective. GE2015, WP kept all other opposition parties at length from the start and that is the way they like it in Parliament. After all, WP MPs sits in most parliamentary select committees, unlikely they would want it diluted. Now, the question is, can SDP lead a third force in GE2020?

WP & S'POREANS SHOULD RESPECT OTHER OPPOSITION PARTIES TOO

Looking at the wave of criticism against the NSP for wanting now to contest in Macpherson despite giving up Marine Parade, it is apparent that contrary to what some political observers say about GE 2015 being about political party diversity, the political landscape in Singapore is shaping up increasingly to resemble a lop-sided two-party hegemony. The way both the PAP and WP have conducted their preparations for this coming hustings indicates quite clearly that there will be little or no space in the future for other political parties.

WP SHOULD ALLOW NSP TO CONTEST IN MACPHERSON FOR OPPOSITION UNITY SAKE?

Read the news about NSP decision to contest in Macpherson SMC. I think this is a reasonable request from NSP since they already graciously gave up contesting in Marine Parade to give WP a better chance. Especially after WP insisted on contesting in Marine Parade, some quarters of the Opposition have grumbled about WP's arrogance and high-handedness in their handling of the horse trading meetings. This is a good chance for WP to show they are a constructive leader of the Opposition movement.

WORKERS PARTY SHOULD NOT GIVE IN TO BIMBO NSP OPPOSITION

I would like to send the "No Such Party" aka "NSP" a very hard message through your site about their stance on Marine Parade and MacPherson! Since the last GE, they have never been here previously after fielding bimbo Nicole Seah who's an emotional rollercoaster with BGR problems. She came here, got us all hyped up that she's the one for change, made all sorts of promises then defected to the State controlled media.

GOH MENG SENG: OPPOSITION PARTIES MUST BE SINCERE IN NEGOTIATING OPPOSITION UNITY

No matter how big or small a party is, it must learn how to exercise Diplomacy but not hypocrisy or Wayang. From little things like negotiations, the party should not pretend to attend but just refuse any negotiation process. Worse still, while ignoring all attempts to talk or negotiate but put up a pretence in public media that there is such negotiation going on.
