Enhancement Of A Discredited And Undemocratic System

In January 2016, Lee Hsien Loong told Parliament that for the next GE, he would instruct the Boundaries Review Committee to create more SMCs and reduce the average size of the GRCs.

Today’s release of the Boundaries Report is an illustration of how hollow Lee Hsien Loong’s words were. There has only been an increase of 1 miserable SMC from 13 to 14. On the other hand, a significant number of GRCs have been enlarged from 4 men teams to 5 men teams.

More importantly, this latest Boundaries Report is a continuation of undemocratic practices, chief of which is the use of the discredited GRC system to usher in unmeritorious Members Of Parliament, who do nothing to contribute to the public good or interest.

When Peoples Voice is in government, we shall ensure that this discredited GRC System is abolished, and that every Member of Parliament is elected on his or her own merit, and is not pulled into Parliament on the coattail of others.

Despite the many shortcomings of this Boundaries Report, it has not changed our Party’s intention to contest in the following constituencie for the upcoming GE. These are constituencies where we have spent the past year reaching out to residents and understanding their aspirations and concerns:-

1. Choa Chu Kang GRC
2. Jalan Besar GRC
3. Tanjong Pagar GRC
4. Pasir-Ris Punggol GRC
5. Pioneer SMC
6. Mountbatten SMC

It would be utterly irresponsible for the PAP government to hold the GE at a time when our society is experiencing the turbulence of the Covid-19 crisis.

The GE must only be held when this crisis is over. And there will be plenty of time for that to happen since the current Parliamentary term only ends in January 2021, and elections must be held by April 2021.

  • PAPVID-20:

    What I find amazing is that the EBRC released the report only on Friday the 13th and so fast on the same day the pap govt accepted the committee’s recommendations?

    EBRC took 8 LONG MONTHS to make the boundary changes but govt doesn’t even need to take a day to study the report before accepting? Hmm….. don’t tell me during that 8 long months, EBRC has already submitted various reports which have been rejected?

    Anyway, Good Luck, LT. All the very best, PV. But pleasssssse, no 3-corner fight in the constituencies with other oppo parties, ok?

    Mr Lim…what better time than to assure Crown Virus is under CONtrol and use it as a Fear Factor & Threat towards the silly sheeple that the Pigs on two Trotters are in CONtrol and the slitty eyes of the Trained Dogs are there to Herd them to safety in their pen…

    Prepare a list of SHIT that the Pigs are shitting all over and wallowing in their Crowning Glory to Destroy the Dynasty…

  • @PAPVID-20

    The report is actually written by the party and EBRC only rubber stamp, so of course very fast wat.

    Anyway, if I were the head of the party, I also want to quick quick call GE wat. Now uncertain times, voters sure afraid of changes one and will die die vote for the incumbent one wat. What better time then to call for a GE asap?

    The more the Covid-19 kenna, the more votes the party will get cause all scared scared, don’t dare to vote anyone else scared sekalli the oppo like Dr m like that, by then hospital also don’t have liao.

    Now is the best time for an overwhelming victory for the incumbent, the more kenna Covid-19 the better!

    The party sibei smart one, if they wait and then say kenna 5000 or more infected, they sure cannot handle one, so by then call GE they sure die one. So now only a few hundred, die die better call GE now even by then after GE liao Covid-19 kenna 10000 infected they oledi in power liao, all kenna one die off alcho neber mind.

    BTW, you noticed bo, the top 3 oppo high chance SMC all kenna absorb into GRC liao, show they determined to sweep all seats lor. They also added 4 seats, making leeway for Dr Tan Cheng Bok? So even if Dr Tan win a GRC the number of seats in Par also not lesser for them.

    IMHO, the party sibei predictable one, if one bother to pay attention to their wayangs.

    You say got dio bo?

    Reported on Todayonline website :Quote – “TOC editor, lawyer M Ravi among 4 investigated for contempt of court
    By LOUISA TANG
    …..
    The Online Citizen editor Terry Xu wrote in a Facebook post on the morning of March 13, 2020 that police officers came to his home at 7am and confiscated his computers.
    Published13 MARCH, 2020
    UPDATED 13 MARCH, 2020
    ….

    SINGAPORE — Socio-political website The Online Citizen’s (TOC) chief editor Terry Xu and three other individuals, including human rights lawyer M Ravi, are being investigated for contempt of court, the police said on Friday (March 13).

    In response to TODAY’s queries, a police spokesperson said that the four had published online articles and posts in relation to pending court proceedings — specifically, the 2015 extradition of a Singaporean to Malaysia.
    …..

    Besides Xu and Mr Ravi, the Singaporean in question — Mr Mohan Rajangam — and a TOC writer, Ms Danisha Hakeem, are also under investigation.

    The police said that the publication of the articles and posts poses a “real risk of prejudicing or interfering with the course of such proceedings”.
    …..

    The Attorney-General had authorised the police to begin investigations into possible contempt of court under Section 3(1)(b) of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act.

    The police said that on Jan 10 this year, Mr Ravi had filed a petition for criminal revision in the courts, supported by an affidavit from Mr Mohan.
    ….

    TOC then posted on Facebook about it on the same day, containing a link to the article written by Ms Hakeem on the criminal revision. “Both the post and article contained matters stated in Mr Mohan’s affidavit,” the police added.
    ….

    The Malaysian courts had issued a warrant of arrest against Mr Mohan in 2015 for his suspected links to a murder in Penang.
    ……

    Xu wrote in a Facebook post on Friday morning that police officers came to his home at 7am and confiscated his computers. He said he would be called to the Police Cantonment Complex to help in investigations.

    “A point to note, the articles were never Pofma-ed,” he added, referring to the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (Pofma)…. “Unquote.

    Response :Since the articles were never Pofma, then those articles cannot be false. And when Pofma already existed, why police still continue to use force and confiscate other people computer unnecessary ? Just issue a comparison or correction order will do, isn’t it? Something very fishy? Cannot win, cannot argue, did wrong, still use brutal force power????

  • Tremendous:

    Sure the virus in the village is under control ? After so long, members of a certain party dare not report on the maximum days and average days of stay for critical cases. Which MP from that party voiced out ? Everyone is so busy with their non-MP assignments elsewhere. Like some Batok place where the MP was ‘busy’ till someone died in his ward. That’s why they got in more seats for MPs because the part time hours as MP can be lowered maybe from some 50% to 40%, and earn the same salary. EBRC members know how to keep their salaries.

    The plot thickens. The health chief came out to limit mass gatherings to below 250. Covering their own backsides again because he is afraid people will wash them in public. Incidentally, 250 sounds like a number that allows the education chief to get away with running mass gathering exams. Of the 200 cases we have, the majority did not contract the virus from mass gatherings of 250 and above. With the health chief, there is now a new portfolio – scapegoat chief.

    Don’t blame people for speculating.

  • NotMyProblem:

    PAP, in particular, the PM always think Singaporeans are idiots!

    When the opposition asked “when the EBRC to be formed” in Parliament, only then the people were told it was already formed in April, months before.

    Only when the PAP was asked when the EBRC report is ready, immediate the report was out the very next day!!

    PAP also think Singaporeans do not know how to count the number SMCs and GRCs.

    I still do not know the rationale of having GRC. In Bukit Batok by-election, an Indian was elected into Parliament all by himself!! Can we still say minority races cannot be elected into parliament? As a matter of fact, it was the Chinese, the majority race, who needed GRC to enter parliament! I don’t know how the Chinese MPs felt about this?

    Reported on Straits Times website :Quote – “Malaysia police chief denies ex-finance minister Lim Guan Eng’s son arrested in Singapore

    Mr Lim Guan Eng speaking during an interview with Reuters in Putrajaya, Malaysia, on July 22, 2019.PHOTO: REUTERS
    PUBLISHED2 HOURS AGO
    FACEBOOKWHATSAPPTWITTER
    KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador has denied allegations that former finance minister Lim Guan Eng’s son has been detained in Singapore.

    He said Mr Lim’s son is in Singapore but he has not been arrested or detained by the authorities there.

    “It is definitely not true. We have not got any report that his (Lim) son was detained in Singapore.

    “This is definitely fake news being spread,” he said when contacted on Saturday (March 14).

    He added that Mr Lim’s son is not under investigation by Malaysian authorities as well.

    “We will investigate who is spreading such fake news. We will get to the bottom of the matter,” Tan Sri Abdul Hamid said.

    Chinese-language newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau had earlier reported that the child of a “senior Pakatan Harapan leader” had allegedly been nabbed after he attempted to take RM2 million (S$660,000) into Singapore without proper verification.

    Controversial blog Malaysia Today later quoted the Nanyang article and alleged that the young man involved was Mr Lim’s son….. “Unquote.

    Response :Maybe Nanyang Siang Pau come out to verify whether is it the son of Mr Lim Guan Eng being nabbed by the Singapore police or not? How come Singapore police never issue any statement whether they nabbed Mr Lim Guan Eng’s son or not? Pofma law is there and Singapore Police must speak up before any rumour start spreading, shouldn’t it be that way? Else, after rumour start spreading and police then minister then use “correction” order will be too late and a waste of time too! If Singapore Police cannot even verify such small case and speak up to clear doubts, then the police force is clearly not functioning right ? And it seem funny that this case happen in Singapore, yet it is the Malaysia side that is speaking up first. Any possibility of cover up ???

    Response :When AGC or police did not say the articles are false, does it mean AGC or police has agreed that Lim Guan Eng’s son has been arrested? Whether Lim Guan Eng’s son has been arrested by Singapore Police or not, surely Singapore police force can issue a statement of fact straightaway to clear all doubts and not left doubts hanging in the air for all people to guess. Else, rumours will spread and rumours post of “Lim Guan Eng’s son” news may be posted out at website. Then the issue become bigger because Singapore Police keep their mouth shut and did not response. When such issue may blow overboard, then Minister may waste time using “correction” order at websites using Pofma law, possible?

    Dear LT,
    It is not undemoncratic to redraw election boundary.

    Even Taiwan Demoncratic Progressive Party (DPP) copy our great PAP strategy by redrawing the Kaohsiung boundary.

    http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2008/12/18/2003431375

    So, why you Ang Mo Tua Kee LT, Oxygen, Andrew, Dr Chee, Roy and gang never condemn DPP ?

    Because the party first name is called Demoncratic ?

    And do you know that this DPP also appointed all the election losers to higher position ?

  • Pinky Is Cunning:

    The last time the World Trade Centre in the USA was bombed by Arab Terrorist creating fear worldwide. Amid these fear among Singaporeans, the PAP immediately hold their election in the crisis.

    Now with the Corona Virus spreading widely causing economic problems and loss of jobs, Pinky is again using this crisis to hold the election.

    He doesn’t care if you got the virus or not as long as PAP wins the election. Don’t be fooled by Pinky again.

    Remember all those cruel things done by the PAP -
    1) Bringing tons of Foreigners to take over our jobs.
    2) Refusing to let us take our CPF at 55 years old.
    3) Changing the constitution to let Halimah Yaakob be the President , thus preventing Dr Tan Cheng Bok from becoming President. Halimah is Indian and not a Malay.

    4) Refusing to reveal what his wife salary is. Suspected to be one hundred thousand dollars per annum.
    5) They raised their own salaries to be the highest in the world but refuse to have a minimum wage for Singaporeans.
    6) Refusing to control the Cost Of Living
    7) Health Cost is very high
    8) Aiming for a 10 Million population when there is insufficient space, water, food etc just to win future elections.

    and many other evils done by this party. Don’t be a fool again and let them torture you. Its time to vote PAP OUT. _

  • PG:

    I first thought that when they said they increased the total number of MPs from 89 to 93 (i.e. 4 more), I supposed there would be 4 more additional single seat wards. But instead, they increased by 1 more single seat ! Pathetic. The emperor, I believe, told the EBRC to carve out more single seats, but instead they deleted a few single seats with good percentage by WP, and created a few NEW single seats out of nowhere !

    All I can say is that from my experience, Terry & Ravi still think they can take on the regime regarding what the emperor without clothes talked about spending his time to “FIX” his critics.

    Terry, Ravi, Lim Tean, Leong Sze Hian etc might like to read up sections 16 & 17 of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act.

    AS I hv stated previously, I would have testified in the Court of Appeal when CJ asked if Lim Tean, in his appeal for Leong, whether Lim Tean considered the judiciary being used to “fix” the critics.

  • Reality Told us already:

    Singaporeans and the world already would not equate SG with a bonafide democracy.

    At best a pseudo democracy, authoritarian state.

    So WHAT DOES THIS IMPLY?

    REALITY bites. It hurts.
    But the Truth is the Truth, nevertheless.

    Singaporeans know how the regime operates and all fear it because of how it operates.

    Despite this, they choose this regime.

    So this is REALITY. Singaporeans mostly NEVER DEMAND nor Desire Democracy, like it or not. Look at the Chinese majority China. Prosperous and modern. THEY DON’T NEED DEMOCRACY. All they want is money, food and house and job. They don’t want politics .

    Sounds familiar? SG is super majority Chinese.

    If 1.3Billion Chinaman can accept dictatorship with orgasm, why cannon SG accept a One Party Rule ?

    Reality bites. Democracy? What is that? Can eat or not?
