Heng Swee Keat is Deputy Prime Minister effective 1st May

Heng Swee Kiat

Minister for Finance Heng Swee Keat will be promoted to Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) with effect from 1st May 2019.

In the press released by the Prime Minister Office (PMO) on Tuesday (22 April), Mr Heng will remain as Minister for Finance, and continue to chair the Future Economy Council and National Research Foundation.

PMO also announced that current DPMs Teo Chee Hean and Tharman Shanmugaratnam will relinquish their appointments and be appointed Senior Ministers and remain in Cabinet.

Mr Tharman will be re-designated as Coordinating Minister for Social Policies and will continue to advise the Prime Minister on economic policies. He will also be appointed deputy chairman for GIC, assisting chairman PM Lee to lead the board in overseeing GIC’s long-term asset allocation and portfolio performance.

Mr Teo will continue as Coordinating Minister for National Security.

Mr Heng was picked at the ruling PAP’s first assistant secretary-general in November last year, a move that puts him in line to become Singapore’s next prime minister.

PM Lee has said that he plans to step down some time after the next general election, which is widely expected to be held late this year, and must be held by April 2021.

  • Regime change is the solution:

    He will likely be blamed if the PAP does badly at the coming GE which is almost certain and step down. CCS will then likely take over as PM. He will likely bring in LHL’s son into PAP for the 5G PAP leadership. It is in the cards.

  • I like LyCHEE, hate LOONGan:

    Thatman told the press HSK is the best person to become PM during the next term of G. He should have said it more accurately – HSK is the best CHINESE to become PM…..!

    Thatman is greatly a disgrace to his minority race, failing to fight racism. Even footballers are taking the issue very seriously now but Thatman accepts racial discrimination by his colleagues quietly. *Palm on face*

    TWO DPMs BECOME CO-ORDINATING MINISTERS? What happened to “SENIOR” once fashionable? Both are indeed “seniors” of political longevity at least but not accorded the respect?

    Where is the other “DPM” in waiting in the new cabinet architecture?

    IF THE SOLE DPM and his 4Gs do not turn up a new BIG reformist policies agenda BEFORE THE NEXT GE, they will all reduced to sausage meats in the GE.

    Peasants want change, big changes in HDB/CPF/GRC/ population recycling economics etc etc and they are impatient.

    The MasterMind(MM)behind this ReShuffling Scheme of things is, in Hokkien, Jin Jek Arh! Unless Heng’s stroke which nearly sent him to his Maker, is NOT STAGED, appointing only ONE DPM instead of TWO, is very SNEAKY way of ensuring that should Mai Hum steps down suddenly due to relapse of Cancer, etc, Heng Heng has to shoulder all the responsibilities and accountability of a PeeM! If there is ANOTHER DPM, Heng, looking at the dire situation at that instance, can pass the BUCK to the next DPM! Now, he has NO OPTION! His good colleague, Bugs Bunny Chan aka Kee Chiu must be quietly laughing inside his heart. Next GFC maybe is lurking around the corner. The Scheming MM has really taken all lot of time to come out with this GREAT PLAN of PeeM succession. So Tharman and Big Nose Teo are kicked upstairs to become SM(Senile Ministers). So what position and name is Mai Hum holding and called when he FINALLY steps down? AM(Almighty Minister)?

    Come May 2019, Overall, we will have PeeM Mai Hum, DPM Heng Heng, ESM(Extra Senile Minister)Woody assisted by 2 SMs and host of Ministers in the PMO! Wah Lang, Sinkaporean all can sleep like babies all night LOONG, knowing SinKapore is in GOOD HANDS come 1 May 2019!

    So we are now adding more cost to our government; we have 2 senior ministers, 1 ESM and 1 DPM. How many more million $ taxpayers have to pay now? Except for the position of DPM, are those others position of the government in the constitution?

    I cannot only see another puppet PM coming! After the wayang handover of the Primership to Heng, LHL will still be pulling the string as senior minister or whatever minister behind the scene.

    Singaporeans vote wisely coming GE. We have too much of this wayang already.

    Be smart, be smarter than the Malaysians! Malaysians saw through the humans circle surrounding the 1MDB cookie jars, blocking the view of BOSSKU’s hand inside it.

    Don’t you see it in SG, the “no conflict of interest” wife of a Minister as Auditor General, the appointment of Attorney General from the same party, selected an Indian as a Malay President? Having laws to shut anyone mouth? It is for some agenda of the PAP!

  • opposition dude:

    You see the problem with PAP is that they don’t even trust their own people ha ha ha!

    Stroke man becomes DPM only for the other 2 to hang around and rot thus leaving him no chance to really solidify his stance and show us all just what he has up his sleeves.

    But don’t blame him though, what with the current useless PM still hanging around after he has handed over the reins and some cock saying that the old dinosaurs should be around so as to, ahem, “speak up for the older generation”. One wonders just what are the relevant ministries doing when you still need some old has been past his use by date to “speak up for the older generation”.

    Still far too many old cocks around as ministers after the election so stroke man has to learn to give some respect too, it’s an asian thing after all.

  • LHY/LWL bad dream begins:

    Heng is said to be LHL’s member of his in Laws. Apparently Chancs also. This relationship was said to be gagged to get the dynasty agenda on the way. Perhaps LHY/LWL could confirm.
    LKY stopped President OTC to seek a second term by some reason jumped out from his magic box that candidate with health conditions r disqualify to stand for Election. But LHL was reported to have the same health problem as OTC about the same time but he was some how exempted with once again out of the magic box but this time is a convenient lapse of memory of the entire bureaucracy. This continued to the political musical chair minister with a bad heart so also Heng. This is strangely the same pattern of conflict of interest re the appointment of AG of AGC, personal lawyer of PM chronically defended by Min Indrani that no Conflict ofInterest cos he has successful career with the entire legal community right down from CJ to the law students. Strangely the career success exused Conflict of Interest AG submitted to the Law Society a 500 pages on Conflict of Interest incurred in witnessing LKY last modification of his will by LHY’s wife. Strangely Lawyer Society does not publicised the 500 pages not even mentioning the essense of justification of Conflict. Many Singaporeans wonder it include Min Indrani’s defence of his own case n how he would prove that Mrs LHY has a less successful career than he when Singaporeans understand the daughter in laws of LKY has many international Legal awards n been a President of an internation Law organization but Min Indrani absorbed him with no mention of fraternity recognition just he has a caeer success. Perhaps Min Indrani could raked up her debating skill to set her argument in better perspective as it now seems to be rather fake!
    Now with Heng pulled up n senorised once considered a potential successor n half way aborted Deputy, perhaps marked the end of LKY nepotism n the start of the bad dream of the siblings n the family. Any Chinese historians automatically switched on the Tang-zhou Dynasty usurp with considerable bloodshed n will the modern enactment in SIN ironically having the same famname. However the Tang was restored thru a tough resistance from the loyalists led by the daughter. it would be interesting to see whether history repeats itself in the mythical enactment from Louyang to SIN thru time in that could LWL or LHY rescue their father Agenda? Hopefully the siblings work to return to Singaporeans what they worked so hard for alongside with their father!

  • Naive u think ccs gives up:

    Heng weak heart may forced him down CCS may have his dream but if Liho hope he will like the lky strong gripped Me Peanut, thet will be making the deadly error. ccs has shown he has no problem to flaunt his billions n his power even prematurely. Politics sees no blood close or far. Only money n power to hide n get are what SIN politic is now with university now even willing to trade their ancestral painfully built trademark foundation as exemplified by once considered to be icon in commercial wise Institute of Technology now world academically considered to be the master of con n fake as naive greedy Cambridge has learnt her painful lesson but the highly talented with a former President anymoh in laws still irmly glued on to its butts n continually to stuff it with SIN$s.

    But the scenario will only be so if 70% LKY supporters was GF fumed so badly that they can’t hear what LKY telling them thru LHY/LWL still think the version 3 n 4 r LKY chosen men n not his enemies by his decree when he was still alive, those opposing him r his enemies. Singaporeans r now busily trying to figure out how Lao Lee is putting TCB thru to face his old love n hate across the straits via his honourable son n lining up his once exiled men n women showed sign of not with him but r hard nuts crack to respectable position that they have absolutely no choice but to praise him n his policies to help TCB mission. TCB tua tarn liao. How can TCB not win when Lao Lee came back in LHY n in TCB in the historic PAP will claim in future autobio as SIN historic meeting n spirit jumpover meet over kopitiam kopi! SIN will have more historic events to witness at zero cost!

    Now Tharman got chopped cos to much smoke like a seasoned PAP Oscar wayanger. Faithful Teo not faithful enough to the nu dynasty, got hopped earlier to avoid ping pian. Kawh is stupid enough not to stumb the great plan in negative investment n kowtow mentality to get back on the 1R1B, nicked by some supernickercas once roped then one belt to heaven. Greed of great Aussi leaders, Sri Lanka n many more to follow r drowning in their greed but too late to use their little heads to grow rich with their citizenry together. Now SIN great greeds r lured to sink the entire pop including the foreign trash finally admitted by the DHS as hungry,geedy n aggressive which has now become the surviving mission of PAP. US has the controlling voice for many years because they have once true leaders unlike the self glorified n self gratified talented leaders n their unflagging trust in justice n people no excuse of populism to avoid serving their people. They r not greed operators. But Trump has reset all these n is paying dearly now for his arrogance, extreme egoist n nfi loud mouth. China now roars like Kingkong while Trump follow behind like the little monkey on a ferocious croc. It is unlikely that China would be universally accepted as a leading Voice as it is infested with greeds n super arrogance. ST reported in the same vien as PAP that the Americans is learning n copying SIN Medical policy as ST somehow finger that the world think SIN is world best.

    BASICALLY,MORE RETICENT THAN DIPLOMATIC GUY.
    he will serve SG better in the finance portfoilio.
    to insist to put him into TOP POST is simply doing the nation a big disfavour,let’s wait and see.

    a GY kind would be more natural as PM.
    OR THARMAN?

    SINCE PAP cannot have a good choice,thinkwe should try and see if ONE GOOD SG exist outside PAP TO LEAD THE NATION FORWARD.

  • LIONS:

    JUST like JEROME POWELL being made FED CHAIR.
    he is not a good choice,i think.
    maybe he is just a FED CLOWN?

    So,why insist on turning H$K into a clown PM?
    we need strong PM to represent us at times like this.

  • Tharman aka Nair:

    The nfi 4th generation could only imitate lao lee in dealing with grade A plps getting overwhelminglu popular n becoming a real threat to the dynasty ambition alleged by the honourable . Nair is a classic example. His long link to NTUC has proven he is more loyal to workers n more dedicated to their cause n welfare than his role as lao . He was seemingly promoted but actually being forcibly isolated n finally severe n fear implanted that he has to flee for his dear freedom by self exile. Another example was the powerful link of Ong TC to the Chinese ed pap mps n it is really this link that he y won the leadership with . Being a chinese ed with chinese tradition deeply n his marital bliss is well knoxn n characterised by Moon represented his feeling n heart to his wife. Having no hole to bore. lao lee effort on GCT managed to cow him into seat worming. Ong was to be isolated from GCT n to dress up GCT cowing, Ong like Nair was seen to be promoted n reducing the Chinese ed inflience n power struggle with the angmoh group. The big halaboo n rage of lao lee over financial book review reflected Ong realising he is removed from active politics n he has no choice except to do what the cabinet wants. Preventing he from seeking a 2nd term on his own popularity is intolerable to lao lee privare nepotic agenda. Thus what followed is self explanatory.
    lao lee wish of no physical memorial showed his forsight of not being kept reminded which invariably turned into interest to know more n final truth may surface. The nfi dns cannot fathomed his papa brilliant mind n foresight which if lao lee predict will lead to total collapse of pap esp stenched xith GFWs n negative investment policy to selg gloricatio’.
