The Workers’ Party Manifesto

The WP began the review of its 2015 General Elections manifesto some months ago.

The WP manifesto is a compass and expression of the values we desire for Singapore.

For a small political party like the Workers’ Party, developing policy positions to carry the aspirations of Singapore and Singaporeans is challenging. The Party has to make a leap and attempt to grasp the views of Singaporeans from across the spectrum, high-income or low -income, employer, employee or business owner, online and offline and seek outcomes for the betterment of the people and the nation.

As we revisit our positions and aspirations, judgment needs to be exercised to understand whether certain propositions can be carried on the ground or if certain principles are non-negotiable, etc. Positions will change as time goes by and others may need to be nuanced to take new circumstances into account. Please take a look at our GE2015 manifesto linked here: http://www.wp.sg/manifesto/

Drop us a note at [email protected] with your thoughts. But remember others have different values, views and perspectives that may be equally legitimate. Do also think about the impact of your proposals on the public purse even if a large part of public finance / reserves are not completely transparent.

Tell us where you stand on the issues and why? Because our views reflect the values we seek for this country we call home and the next generation of Singaporeans.

  • opposition dude:

    6 opposition MPs aren’t going to do much for the nation, this we all agree on. So let us all help them out by voting in even more opposition for there to be more vigorous and robust debates ok?

    PAP has had it far too easy for far too long. If we don’t reduce the number of turkeys in parliament we can expect even worse accountability and transparency. It’s time to put that high ministerial pay to an end since we do not see any improvement in our lives and are forced to fight for our jobs with countless numbers of non Singaporeans being let in freely by PAP. Do remember the population is at 5.64 million and increasing hor.

    So all you east side voters, do your part and vote in more opposition! No point giving PAP 52% of the vote because they would still win and still be receiving that obscene salary, especially that minister who is running in your GRC.

    Kick out as many ministers as possible!

    No need jest.
    Just lead an oppo alliance or join forces with the others.

    Synergy is vital to boost voters’ confidence n optimise limited resources of each party.

    agree, bro. UNITY is strength.

    one chopstick, breaks easily.

    a bunch of chopsticks, cannot be broken easily, no matter how pap clown fixes system to break the bunch.

    GE2019, no OPPOSITION should go in alone. because doing more of the same means the results are about the same.

    DO the change. do Pakatan Singapura.

    when Dr Mahatir was organizing to topple najib UMNO via PH, everyone said Dr Mahatir no chance. pap clown continued to durian selfie with najib. because pap clown also though Dr Mahatir PH no chance. BUT Dr Mahatir today is PM of Msia. and rightly Dr Mahatir no hew the pap clown who cahoot with najib since najib churied ringgit.

  • HarderTruths:

    Why does WP act like it is an Ang Moh party?

    NO compromise with other $G parties.
    Not looking for common ground or the common good.
    Not recognising there is unity and strength in diversity and cooporation.

    Enough already. Time to vote for people who know how to look past differences to see our common heritage and future.

  • At the High Court today.....:

    I entered Court as a neutral wanting to hear the truth but left totally disappointed after what I learned. Mind you, those accused have not even started their defence!

    Politics is not only dirty, but damn filthy too. Now I know what ‘fixing the Opposition’ really meant!

    What is right for Peter is wrong for Paul!

    What you hear in Court contradicted what was claimed in Parliament!

    No joke! Case resumes coming Monday at 0930am.

    More dirty linen will be aired. Come hear for yourself before you vote at the next GE!

    Be early as Q tickets are limited!

  • fucqueupap:

    Strange! PS actually knows WP is a small political party? Then why refused to combine with other opposition parties to form a coalition? It’s akin to a small boy who stubbornly tries to fight big bullies alone when he can’t even protect himself yet still want to stand up for other victims. For self glory or what?

    Wake uP, WP!!!!!!!! Stop being arrogant like the PAP.

  • CNA - Balanced Reporting?:

    Look at the 5 crawlers broadcasted over CNA this morning…

    1. WP Leaders accused of ‘Cavalier Misuse of Public Funds’

    2. AHTC suing Sylvia Lim, Low Thia Khiang and Pritam Singh

    3. Appointment of FMSS ‘Hurried, Baseless’ AHTC Lawyers

    4. Lim, Low ensured FMSS Would Take ‘Profit-Centric Role’

    5. WP MPs acted in Good Faith, No breach of Duty – Defence Lawyers.

    You decide if this is balanced reporting…

  • Sinkies Deserve It:

    WP is a small party but is already having a class divide in the opposition camp, never ever joining any of the opposition alliance’s meetings. For a small party, either you pledge alliance to PAP ( be their team B, a wayang party serving to block real opposition in parliament) or you pledge alliance to other opposition parties. As of now, WP is an impotent party.

  • Stop dreaming!:

    Pritam Singh and his lot know they do not have any chance of challenging the PAP now or ever on their own. It seems they are quite happy to secure a few seats in Parliament (if they can) in each GE which means they are in no position to form a strong opposition in Parliament. Perhaps that’s all they want.

    Forget about your manifesto – “Empower your Future”. This is a joke. WP on its own will never be able to take on the PAP so stop this wishful thinking.

    If Pritam and his lot are sincere about wanting to challenge the Garmen as credible opposition, it is time they put aside their pride and team up with other parties to form an alliance. This is the only way to take on the might of the PAP. Pritam, read the comments in social media. Everyone is saying the same thing. So, stop dreaming!

    As evil cronies try to obfuscate the issue and confuse the sinkies, it is necessary to bring clarity and focus to the minds of the simpletons the Crux of the matter is..

    ” The truth was that the opposition party, after winning the first GRC from the ruling party in 2011, was left without support from the former managing agent. The former general manager of the GRC stepped up and volunteered to create a company to ensure that town council services do not get disrupted. A tender for the accounting software was called for, but there was no taker as Singapore vendors were afraid of offending the dictatorship by helping the opposition-held town council ”

    WP must join the Opposition Alliance otherwise there is no chance in toppling PAP. Just like gambling go for ibet, don’t be greedy. Knowing you can’t form a government alone no point go contest in all seats. Unity is srength, Mr Pritam Singh.
