Vivian Balakrishnan accused the SDP of sprouting falsehoods in their 4Y 1N election campaign.

Li ShengWu on the court's judgement against himLi ShengWu on the court's judgement against him Apparently the court has rendered judgement on my case today, and fined me $15,000 for a comment made to my friends on Facebook. I disagree with the judgement, and worry that it will reinforce the PAP's tendency to suppress ordinary political speech. In response to three words in a private Facebook post, the government...

Historian Michael Barr reflects on GE2020 - 'PAP govt is in denial'Historian Michael Barr reflects on GE2020 - 'PAP govt is... The People’s Action Party (PAP) government of Singapore has suffered its worst ever election result, but Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has suggested merely that the result was “not as strong an endorsement as hoped”. Individual swings against the ruling party of up to 27 per cent and typically 6–15 per cent...

WP’s Yee Jenn Jong rebuts Lawrence WongWP’s Yee Jenn Jong rebuts Lawrence Wong With due respect to Minister Lawrence Wong, I do not think this 'desire for diverse voices, checks and balances' is something new that will cause PAP's vote share to be unlikely to exceed 65% in future. A blank cheque was given to the PAP in 1968 when the Barisan Socialis boycotted the GE. That allowed the PAP to cement...

Why I Voted Against PAP at Ang Mo Kio GRCWhy I Voted Against PAP at Ang Mo Kio GRC I read the article "I trusted PAP for far too long" and "I am Sengkang voter", I totally agree with their observations. I said the same thing about two decades ago to all my friends and relatives, few people agreed with me and even said I am hardcore opposition. Today, I am proven right, those who did not agree with...

Lawrence Wong should stop acting like the grand saga of PAPLawrence Wong should stop acting like the grand saga of PAP Come on Lawrence Wong, the Workers Party MPs are not school boys and girls elected into parliament. Neither are you a school prefect watching over your charges. Pritam Singh, Sylvia Lim and you were elected into parliament in the same year in 2011. But with one big difference – you came in on the coattails of two...

GE2020 shows us that we need less 'Indian Chief' opposition parties aroundGE2020 shows us that we need less 'Indian Chief' opposition... * Take Note Only Contested Seats are Counted. Since 2011 all seats have been contested. But from 2006 and prior, only the contested seats determined the % of votes. So if the Reform Party and Red Dot United did not run, and Jurong, AMK and Radin Mas were walkovers, the PAP mandate would only be 58.7% It would be...

Entrenching the Right to Vote in Free and Fair Elections as a Fundamental RightEntrenching the Right to Vote in Free and Fair Elections... With Singapore GE2020 over and lapses relating to the election administration during this pandemic surfacing even as I write this, my legal cases over the years are highly relevant as they have sought to establish through various legal judgments where in Singapore law, the right to vote is fundamentally located? I have...

Post GE 2020 ThoughtsPost GE 2020 Thoughts I would like to share my thoughts post GE2020. Yes, the result of this election has proven PAP wrong. More people than pap was expecting voted for the opposition. Yes, most of us would agree there are many things wrong with pap. There are different reasons why people voted for the opposition and they can be grouped...

Grant town council funds to Sengkang GRCGrant town council funds to Sengkang GRC Please support this if you feel that your money should not be politicised to the benefit of the PAP and its political grassroots advisers. It is time that things are done differently, fairly, and honestly, respecting the people's choice of MPs. Let us push back against the PA and PAP using public funds to politically...

Why I feel that the PAP still lost the electionsWhy I feel that the PAP still lost the elections In order to consider of one winning the elections a Political Party must win the broad spectrum of the populations, especially the educated and those well informed of the policies of the Government that effect the lives of of the local communities. Let me explain my arguments. I live in Macpherson where the majority...

A better-governed and politically more inclusive Singapore in the years aheadA better-governed and politically more inclusive Singapore... Like many observers, I had also underestimated Singaporeans’ (especially younger Singaporeans’) desire for fairness, accountability, and decency in our political system. The results, as many have pointed out, bode well for Singapore. I think we can all be proud of the way we seized the opportunity this GE offered to...
