Thinking about Singapore’s political future amidst a weak 4G leadership

The People’s Action Party (PAP) is already at its 4th & 5th generation leadership. How would we rate each successive generation?

If corresponding to vote share:

1st = 73%
2nd = 67%
3rd = 64%
4th = 61%
5th = 55%?

However, at which point do we want to start rebalancing Singapore’s political situation? When PAP’s performance drops below 60%? 55%? 50%?

Do we want to wait for PAP to fail miserably before we try to prepare for an alternative scenario? Will it be too late then?

For Singapore’s long term stability, is it the interest of Singaporeans to prepare Singapore’s political scene for a stable transition that involves multiple parties having the ability to negotiate and perform in a manner that will facilitate a smooth transition of power.

However, some questions need to be addressed. #COVID19 has exposed fissures within the PAP that hinders a stable transition of power. The lack of awareness within PAP over how TraceTogether data is used suggests disagreement in how the privacy of Singaporeans should be protected.

How the POFMA anti-disinformation law is being used sparingly to deal with actual disinformation being spread during #COVID19 also suggests there are some among PAP who do not align with the draconian measures being propagated by certain factions within the party.

In order for Singapore to move toward a more collaborative future, there is therefore a need to break with past oppressive legacy measures, and it is paramount a more progressive legal system installed.

The other question pertains to the readiness of Singaporeans to play a more active role in social organization in Singapore. Given how the PAP can provide fewer assurances as to how Singapore will develop, it is important for Singaporeans to step up to a more participatory role.

In order to do so, Singaporeans need to look at how they need to become more willing to partake in conversations surrounding the society and economy, and to develop more collaborative approaches and reduce polarization. It requires a willingness to adopt viewpoints on issues.

In the event that the PAP falters in its ability, and a new government is elected, Singaporeans would need to take on the role of helping shape policies and decision-making with the new government, as part of ensuring a smooth transition.

Some of the questions that need to be thought about are: should a segment of society continue to live on the low wages that prevents them from being active members in contributing to society? Is Singapore able to progress if a segment of society is left behind?

To build a more collaborative future for Singapore, what are the conversations we need to have? Do current laws prevent these conversations from being had, if ethnic minorities who speak up are being unfairly held to task, for example?

We need to start thinking about these now.

    Why go one big merry go round just to have better prospects in your own country that snubbed all Sporeans. Why not just migrate?

    Kind of silly. That person is a SG citizen. He shifts to India so his Chinese children are born there as Indian citizens. And then he re routes them to come Singapore to work? Why put himself through so much hassle?

  • opposition dude:

    The next 2 to 3 elections would show how things progress. Should the likely outcome be that PAP loses more seats then not only would we have a stronger opposition presence in parliament it would also make PAP very very scared.

    No one knows if goondu is going to hand over to stroke man in this election term or not so we can at least be sure that the way of things being done won’t change should goondu be in charge for the entirety of this term. Lapses are a lot more frequent these days because the PAP has a “can’t give a damn why worry we are in charge and can do whatever we want” attitude.

    So it remains to be seen if the numbers of Gen Y and Millennials vs the new citizens are enough to send more opposition into parliament. It was reported that more of the middle class voted for the opposition last year so it remains to be seen if the same thing happens in the next election too.

  • Singaporeans R Free Riders:

    Remember what GCT taught us.
    If you see Opposition, ask:
    1. What can Opposition do for me ?
    Then, you probe deeper,
    2. What is your hidden agenda in pushing for freedom without responsibility ?
    3. Will you be also disrupting train for LGBT rights to have public orgy like ROC Taiwan?

    LGBT group are very good in pretending. Just like Americunt, Britcunt, Cheenacunt.

    First they pretend to ask seemingly innocent questions such as : should a segment of society continue to live on the low wages that prevents them from being active members in contributing to society? Is Singapore able to progress if a segment of society is left behind?

    If you probe deeper, you will realize their hidden agenda and their hidden question is : should LGBT continue to live on society edge that prevents them from being active members in promoting LGBT rights to society (Taiwan LGBT is doing it) ? Is Singapore able to progress if LGBT group is left behind?

    There you go, you have unmasked the hidden message of LGBT.

    Think carefully, probe deeper.

    1) price of everything go up.
    2) Foreigners preferred when it comes to jobs.
    3) Scholarships, living allowance given to aliens.
    4) Citizenship given out to aliens who never served NS.
    5) Spore becomes a babel of strange languages/dialects.
    6) Even Lucky plaza become unlucky plaza, Foreigners COMPLAIN NO BUSINESS !
    7) Foreign women come here to be part time hookers competing with the local call girls.
    8) People who can’t speak, write or understand English can work here.

    Ya lor LGBT want to:

    1) make love in your choo choo trains, HDB corridors, staircase, void decks, corridors, public roads, parks, gardens, Sentosa beach and cable cars, nature reserves. They want to do it for everybody to see. It’s called TRANSPARENCY.

    In your case since you have so much to hide, have sex in a fridge, coffin or other small spaces. More intimate.
