GE2020: Is It Fair for the PAP to Introduce Candidates on National TV?

Parliament has been dissolved. The PAP has no right to use state media to showcase their candidates before the campaigning period. Yesterday, each new candidate presented by Heng Swee Keat and Masagos Zulkifli in a press conference was given airtime on Mediacorp's Channel 5 and Channel 8 news i.e. national TV when giving their individual speeches about why they joined PAP. On the other hand, opposition members were briefly flashed on screen.

A Ramp In Aljunied GRC That Took 7 Years To Build, Because PAP Refuses To Yield To WP

However, MPs must go through their Grassroots Advisers to raise projects for consideration. For PAP wards, Grassroots Advisers are always the elected PAP MPs themselves, so basically, they ownself allow ownself to use funds. But for opposition ward, the Grassroot Adviser happens to be the very same PAP candidates that were defeated by the WP in the Elections, thus it is no surprise that they have their own agenda against WP doing good work for their residents.

WP COMES UP WITH ITS OWN FUNNY FLYER CALLING FOR VOLUNTEERS

This is why the WP is so much more a party for the people who are in touch with the ground, rather than the elites over at the whites, who are only ever concerned about making money above all else. The recent flyer doing the rounds for a resident's committee in Fengshan is prove of that.

"We do offer: occasional free meals (leftover from events), free exercise from carrying chairs and tables, eternal love and gratitude," the tongue-in-cheek WP ad added.

PEOPLE’S ASSOCIATION TO COURSE TRAINERS: IT’S ALL COMMUNITY SERVICE

I was told that it is all for community services. However, they (PA) charged residents for the courses and pay us about 50% (after taxes etc.,). I was unable to get jobs working outside as a trainer. Our pay checks are always delayed 3 to 6 mths: as the people who sign our checks are always on vacation. I later found out that these people are sent overseas to build "Government base" overseas.

KEECHIU CHAN CLAIMS PEOPLE’S ASSOCIATION IS FAIR & NON-POLITICAL, OH REALLY?

I refer to the article “People’s Association is not partisan: Chan Chun Sing” (Channel NewsAsia, Apr 14). It states that “”The PA is a statutory board. It executes the directions for the Government of the day, as per any statutory board. The PA does not allow any political activity or canvassing on our premises or in our activities. And we certainly do not mobilise anyone for any political party,” Mr Chan reiterated. “If Ms Lim has any such evidence of wrongdoing, you can let me know, and I guarantee you I will follow up. I will be the last person to ever allow the PA to be politicised.””
