Lee versus Lee showdown not happening in pandemic GE 2020

For those who have ordered cartons of beer and packets of popcorn wating for the Lee versus Lee showdown come 10th July 2020 would be very disappointed.

It appears that Mr Lee Hsien Yang, the younger brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien loong would not be contesting in the upcoming General Elections under the Progress Singapore Party (PSP) banner.

In a virtual press conference today (26 June), PSP’s secretary-general Dr Tan Cheng Bock announced the lists of candidates who will be fielded by the party and the 9 constituencies which they will be contesting, but there was no mention of the younger Lee.

They are:

  1. Marymount SMC: Dr Ang Yong Guan
  2. Yio Chu Kang SMC: Kayla Low Shu Yu
  3. Kebun Baru SMC: Kumaran Pillai
  4. Pioneer SMC: Lim Cher Hong
  5. Hong Kah North SMC: Gigine Wong
  6. West Coast GRC: Dr Tan Cheng Bock, Jeffrey Khoo, Leong Mun Wai, Hazel Poa and Nadarajah Loganathan
  7. Tanjong Pagar GRC: Michael Chua, Wendy Low, Harish Pillay, Terence Soon and A’bas bin Kasmani
  8. Chua Chu Kang GRC: Francis Yuen, Dr Tan Meng Wah, Abdul Rahman and Choo Shaun Ming
  9. Nee Soon GRC: Damien Tay, Bradley Bowyer, Kala Manickam, Sri Nallakaruppan and Muhammad Taufik bin Supan

Many Singaporeans and International political observers have speculated that the younger Lee might be fielded in Tanjong Pagar GRC, where his late father Mr Lee Kuan Yew previously served as a Member of Parliament till his passing.

Meanwhile, coffeeshop uncles and aunties believe that Mr Lee Hisen Yang will be fielded at the last minute on Nomination Day to catch the ruling party “off guard”.

These uncles and aunties may be right, considering that nothing is concrete till the official forms are submitted on Nomination Day come 30th July.

What do you think?

  • opposition dude:

    Wait and see what happens, there could be a surprise or two.

    And even if Hsien Yang does not stand he can, if he wants to, be a background backer for PSP since he has the money to do so.

    Good to see Dr Tan ready for battle.
    LHY is a valued member n a talent.
    If he stands n wins a seat,it would be a BIG US for the morale of oppo in Sg.
    Meanwhile,KHAW BOON WAN RETIRING SO YOUNG AT 67 ONLY.
    Guess his mentor,Goh Chok Tong,is an influence in some way.
    It was GCT who brought KBW into govt.

    This time,PSP has good slate of candidates,so too the other parties.

    I want to see MORE GOOD OPPO SGS IN PARLIAMENT.
    LOOK,are the slate from PSP N THE OTHERS NOT
    BETTER than PAPple like Kee chiu,OYK,NCM,JO TEO,DIS-GRACEFU ?

    LETS GIVE OPPO SGAS A CHANCE TO SERVE us

    Doc and Yang are NOT idiots they have a plan most likely in TANDEM with other parties…what is shown and introduced is NOT what it is…what it is will be shown if you LISTEN to the comments they gave @ Tiong Bahru Market “Carefully”

  • Yang: candidate-at-large:

    Yang doesn’t need to be a real candidate. He just need say more about how this new PAP has betrayed LKY’s hopes and promises, e.g. HDB. That alone will persuade 50% of HDB owners to change side.

    By showing support for Dr Tan and PSP, already a lot liao, since he is the richest opposition party supporter known to date.

    As a supporter, he can still talk talk shoot video say this say that, therefore why should he contest for a mere $15k pocket change, dio bo?

    LHY whether in or out for the coming election already marks a milestone our political scene.

    It’s a GAME CHANGER as there is now an air of freshness and hope for ordinary Singaporeans. Even international media takes note of this dramatic development.

    Pappy chaps will no longer have a cozy and easy life henceforth collecting million paychecks and doing substandard jobs.

    The days of the incompetents and half-bakeds like J Teo, Lee chiu, GKY and disGraceFool are numbered.

    Ah loon will get more lonely and even sickly as his cohorts one by one opt to retire. The rest are green greenhorns like demon lee and ah meng, still wetbin their ears.

  • last chance:

    Form this coming GE, the opposition parties are fielding quite a good numbers of genuine, and serious and well educated candidates to take on the mighty PAP!!
    We, as citizens, should give them credit and strongly support them for their courage and sacrifices in joining the oppositions to take PAP on!!
    These brave men, knowing very well by joining the opposition, they have every thing to lose!! Yet, for the sake of wanting to see a more balance society and getting rid of cronies and clowns, they are prepared to stick their heads out and fight for justice, transparencies and accountabilities!!

    I grew up with my Brother and we share many things in common but when politics are a concern we differ…He believes that the alternate is never the solution but I differ saying that the current is a bunch of IDIOTS and need to be changed the PAP of Old during our time is GONE…

    the current PAP is Leegaly CORRUPT starting 20 years ago when $$$ replaced Pupils in their eyes and he agreed saying what can you “DO ABOUT IT”???…

    Yang might be his father’s son but there is another side to the equation…he is more his Mother’s son…and he can do LOTS even if he has to dislodge the LEEgal corruption by being IN instead of OUT of Parliament…

    and…there is a Personal Disagreement between the Brothers played out in Parliament making it a MOCKERY…me & my bro??? we still have regular family CNY gatherings leh!!!

  • Make Ah Bock the new PM:

    We couldn’t make Ah Bock the President. But now is the time to make Ah Bock the new Prime Minister.

    He has a big party. Not the biggest. No problem. He can form a coalition government after the election.

    PAP makes people poor. Its policies are meant to make people poor.

    1) It sucks your money into HDB, which becomes zero when you are old. No inheritance for your children/grandchildren.

    2)It sucks your CPF returns, ensuring that you retire poor. Millions of dollars in returns are sucked away from you. Every year, the gov suck out about $20 billions in CPF returns. That’s why you retire poor.

    3)It has few good jobs. PMETs retrained to be security staff or drivers. PMETs retired every early. Young Singaporeans cannot find good jobs.

    Singaporeans, we have been conned by this PAP.

    Make Ah Bock our new Prime Minister!

    SINGAPORE – A “significant opposition presence” is guaranteed in Parliament, regardless of what happens in the general election, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Tuesday (June 30).

    In a virtual press conference, he noted that the expanded Non-Constituency MP (NCMP) scheme now guarantees there will be 12 opposition members in Parliament, even in the event that the PAP wins all the seats.

    “NCMPs do have full voting rights, exactly the same as elected MPs. They can vote on budgets, they can vote on constitutional amendments, they can even vote on motions of confidence,” he said…. “Unquote.

    Response :12 opposition NCMP with full voting rights in Parliament? Is LHL trying to tell us that 12 votes opposition can over-right PAP votes which is easily any figure between 80 – 90 PAP votes? Like that no use.

  • Soccerbetting2:

    LHY already tell you Singapore does not need another Lee in government or something like that. Is he LHY hinting us oppositions will again failed and LHL will again win most seats, if not all seats ? Did LHL not tell to us 12 NCMP opposition seats with voting rights? Nothing surprising if LHL again emerge as the undefeated again after spending tons of public funds giving to business and women wing to enjoy. And all the oppositions may missed out that their parties may have a lot of PAP spy that pay the undertable corona virus $$$ bribery money behind the scene. For example opposition may get 5000 votes but sell off 4000 votes to cash out??? LLL may be a big spy for PAP, who knows?
