Elections in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis will further divide the people

PM Lee Hsien Loong says we either hold the GE later under “more normal circumstances” but that there’s no certainty of that or do it early to get a fresh mandate for the government.

The Covid-19 situation is at its most critical at the moment with the pandemic just being declared. When the international community comes to grips with the situation and resources globally are mobilised, things will start to improve.

The PAP cannot place its own political interest over the health and safety of the Singaporean people. It would be the height of irresponsibility if it goes ahead with the GE at a time when public safety is at its most vulnerable.

The mandate it thinks that it secures in a GE held at a time of a health crisis when people are naturally working together will be hollow and meaningless. To claim endorsement of an agenda based on such opportunistic politicking will further divide the people rather than unite us.

The SDP repeats its call that the GE cannot and must not be called until there are clear signs that the Coronavirus situation has clearly turned around and Singaporeans are no longer under serious threat.

PM Lee will be taking a reckless gamble with the health and well being of the people if he calls for elections in the near future. We urge him to think very carefully.

    they love to gamble with peasants lives.
    ..but that is all they know.
    a one trick pony party.
    the PAP must be thanking their lucky stars re this covid19 happened, or else theyve got nothing to capitalise on this GE or to blame the economic downturn on..it was slowing down even b4 this catastrophe.

  • Evil, Greedy And Corrupt:

    Just like what CCP is doing, risking the lives of ordinary Chinese to work to hold on to power, diehard brother mentor Pappies are doing the same, risking the lives of dumb sinkies to stay in power.

    Pappies call for “United-ness”, just like CCP elites driving expensive racing cars carrying the slogans “武汉加油“.. who are the ones in actual pain?

    Pappies can United-ness your obscene salaries with dumb peasants?

  • PAPVID-20:

    But we know right. Placing its own political interest over everything else is PAP’s true colours.

    Either COVID-19 cases keep on increasing or PM and his MIW get infected, nothing will stop them from going ahead with the GE.

    By the way SDP, how about repeating your call using video? Besides English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil, you should also speak in Hokkien, Teochew and Cantonese. You must let more singaporeans hear your message to the pap. No use to keep repeating your calls to the pap only. They’ll turn a deaf ear to you guys anyway. There’re many people who don’t surf the net to read, so these people will not hear you.

    Vote for PAP means LEE will make himself the Minister Mentor after the 4th Gen took over, and Ho Ching will continue to rule Singapore from behind the curtain.

    Ha ha ha!

  • Crooked PAP:

    The Malaysian lockdown has created a crisis for PAP, much more serious than the corona virus itself.

    Just think what will happen to SG if the 300,000 JB workers, who come into SG daily for work, cannot go back to JB due to Malaysian clamp down.

    Only God knows what these 300K people do in SG as workers. Mind boggling to think what can happen without them.

  • WakeupSG:

    Please address our concern:

    The bulk of the concern is whether turnout could be dampened because voters are afraid to go to the polls or whether poll workers especially those who are over 60 years old, are afraid to show up. And the greater fear is those who show up risk exposing themselves to coronavirus, especially if they have to wait in line for long periods of time.

    Whatever safeguards or safety precaution like benchmarking the crowd size to 250, etc will not be helpful for the fear of being infected is real when there is a pandemic situation!

    Can we vote via mail or online without risk of exposure to the deadly SARS-CoV-2?

  • GE scenario:

    Here is a hypothetic scenario :

    1. GE announced for April.

    2. Citing fears of virus spread, GE Rallies banned or heavily restricted.

    3. They control the media.

    4. Landslide victory.

    5. I migrate
