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...

GE2020: Workers Party's Sengkang GRC team thank supporters GE2020: Workers Party's Sengkang GRC team thank supporters... Workers Party's He Ting Ru, Raeesah Khan and Jamus Lim thank voters for their support after their team defeated the People's Action Party in the new Sengkang GRC.    

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...

Rebutting opposition supporters intelligentlyRebutting opposition supporters intelligently Hey! "Pap.Guarnteed.Win.All!", where Are You Hiding Now? There is actually nothing wrong supporting PAP but what's irritating is when this ass-licker kept popping into the comment section to blurt out annoyingly repetitive rubbish instead of rebutting oppo supporters intelligently. And for TRE, you are equally...

7 reasons to vote for the alternative parties this GE20207 reasons to vote for the alternative parties this GE2020 Today, I have taken the time to write about a few points I feel every eligible voter should read and digest before heading to the polls on 10 July. 1. Controlling Mandate PAP will likely return with a controlling mandate. Even if PAP loses the 5 GRCs (Aljunied, West Coast, Choa Chu Kang, East Coast, Tanjong Pagar for...

Candidate Lee Hsien Loong's False Accusation about Opposition PartiesCandidate Lee Hsien Loong's False Accusation about Opposition... Candidate Lee Hsien Loong had said in his speech that: "At this moment of danger and alarm, the opposition parties are talking as if we can just keep to our old ways and the crisis did not exist. They showed no recognition that we're facing the crisis of a generation. They've been completely silent on how to tackle Covid-19...

Is this how we want the nation to proceed?Is this how we want the nation to proceed? I watched with apathy, the constituency political broadcast and in particular, the one on MacPherson. This is notwithstanding how the PAP candidate had delivered her nomination day speech, claiming credit entirely for taking the rapidly ageing estate from ‘third world to first’ when we all know it is not true. She...

SDP's e-letter to the residents of Holland-Bukit Timah GRC SDP's e-letter to the residents of Holland-Bukit Timah GRC... Dear Residents of Holland-Bukit Timah GRC, We refer to the letter you received from the PAP. This is our e-letter response. The PAP is trying to steal this election by deliberately calling an election during the present COVID-19 pandemic. Since Parliament was dissolved from 23 June until today 7 July, there have...

PAP Government will not fallPAP Government will not fall It is surprising that the possibility of the PAP losing power is still being raised as a factor in this election. I can assure you (and willing to bet a million to one odds) that the PAP will still form the government after the polling day on Jul 10. It is not a reckless statement or impulsive bet. It is justified and...

Remember the broken promises of the PAPRemember the broken promises of the PAP Our CPF is now a national treasure. They shifted the goal post many times to withhold our hard earned savings. Computation now includes inflation rate. This means that the minimum sum will increase every year. We may never be able to utilise our savings even if we get sick. Good jobs for Singaporeans. Of late, our foreign...

Ms Raeesah Khan apologises for comment made 2 years agoMs Raeesah Khan apologises for comment made 2 years ago My intention was never to cause any social division, but to raise awareness to minority concerns. I apologise to any racial group or community who have been hurt by my comments. My remarks were insensitive, and I regret making them. I feel passionate about minority issues, regardless of race, and in my passion,...

Personality and couragePersonality and courage Singapore witnessed a surge of reliable and capable alternative candidates at the election this time. They are caring and authentic. Many have awesome quality and qualifications. But what is more important is their availability to speak with a strong spirit for the sake of Singapore. Fighting for the opposition needs...
