Leon Perera asks: Do we have true meritocracy in Singapore?

Leon Perera

I read with interest The Independent Singapore’s Featured News, “Leon Perera asks: Do we have true meritocracy in Singapore?” (Jan 21).

In the first place, meritocracy should not be narrowly termed as the academic success of an individual. Instead, it should broadly embrace an individual’s capability, leadership and resilience in dealing with unexpected adversity in his/her work and life trajectory.

In short, in a society of meritocracy, an individual’s success and status in life depends primarily on individual talents, abilities, effort and luck. It is a social system in which people advance on the basis of their merits.

The Singapore Government has been practicing meritocratic system in its governance since independence. But, over the years, it has inadvertently created structural and cultural drawbacks which unconsciously and unavoidably produced inequality, elitism and worst – cronyism.

In due course, it is preferably that the current meritocracy mechanism (such as the Public Service Commission) could be fine tuned or delicately revamped so that to ensure the thorough assessment and selection processes of top civil servants are seamlessly safeguarded (a secret balloting system to be recommended and implemented for top civil service posts/appointments in order to avert cronyism).

For acute comparison, China has a unique system of selection and election of officials, which Canadian scholar Daniel A. Bell has described as “political meritocracy.”

Unlike Western models, China’s selection of officials is focused on ability and merit.

“Political meritocracy” is the idea that the political system should aim to select and promote leaders with superior qualities, Bell expounded.

This is in line with the Confucian tradition of meritocracy, which is deeply entrenched in Chinese political culture.

Since the independence of the People Republic of China (PRC), China’s state and governance systems is “selecting officials based on integrity and ability and on the basis of merit regardless of background to cultivate more talented individuals”.Anyway, China has cultivated a large number of outstanding political talents with continuous training, practice and assessment. As an old saying in China goes, “It takes seven years to see if a tree can grow into suitable building materials.”

Perhaps, Singapore could seriously consider this model from PRC, thoroughly assesses its worth and then emulates it.

    Meritocracy, just like “holistic” or “affordable housing” is only used when PAP feels like it. Otherwise it’s just another word in the dictionary. As so many have said back then, if meritocracy was real then why did they say that the president must be malay thus once again them using the race card as they have done on so many occasions?

    Meritocracy and all that other nonsense spewed forth by PAP is only to fool people who want to be fooled.

  • Singapore has no meritocracy:

    Singapore has no meritocracy in academic because there are many university graduates who are underemployed and unemployed. I know some first class honours degree graduate, master and PHD earning less than big boss with no degree. Singapore is best describe as money said it all.

    Rich people with money earn the most and eat the lion share, not academic success. Rich people depend on employees to make money but employees only get very little portion of the money made. In many companies, it is bootlicker get promoted while hardworking one do the dirty work. So many people are working hard but the ones promoted are not them.There are worse situation where foreigners promote foreigners. Post like managers and CEO given to someone the boss employed from outside the company. In all, there is no work meritocracy.

    In government, we know those who win the most votes in election are not PM. Democracy should have those who win most votes as PMs, but dynasty not the same. Those chosen by PM are cabinet ministers and we know they are not the best. Many of them are not popular and win not much votes. Some are very unpopular and hated by many continue to rule with tyranny. I thought must be connection. In the end turn out some cabinet ministers are PM’s classmate and friends. So government as an example has no meritocracy.

    In NS, we have white horse, we did not do anything, now we should do something. This is not a small matter because white horse culture is in Singapore. It affects the whole nation’s meritocracy. People with merit has no chance in government when they have different opinions. Potential leaders are not given chance because of requirements like becoming president need race requirements. And eventually there is a backdoor for people to be on top. This is not the way to run a nation. The nation belong to us, the people and not someone who manipulate and bend rules the way they like and make themselves stay at the top.

    Singapore pap fool people. If scoring high grades in school makes a person capable , only fools believe that. School and real world are 2 different things. And also how does an engineering graduate at the helm of a major investment Institution? Hoes that relevant to being meritocratic? Meritocracy in layman terms means best man for the job. Not the man with the best grades in school. Like someone said, meritocracy is just a tool for them to consolidate power , form.their own inner circle and shut off any others by implementing an arbitrary criteria to all things.

    Heard the China guy only primary school education. And the area he used to served in past nothing outstanding. In the early days, His father asked some party member guy to 關照 the son. The party member guy refused and make it public, causing embarrassment to him and family. When the party member guy passed way, never attend his funeral.

    So how his performance currently ? Lack lustre right. Even people protest against him and party.
    After 2 terms of anti corruption, still the number of people arrested supersede the past.

    In China history is it always the best man for the job? Not true right. Sometimes everybody has high hopes on this crown prince. End up becoming a 暴君 or 昏君.

    Did you seek to find out WHY THEY ARE POOR ?

    OLD FOLKS are POORS because when they are YOUNGER THEY SCREW AROUND:
    1. they squandered all their monies on woman
    2. they squandered all their monies on liquor
    3. they squandered all their monies on gambling
    4. they squandered all their monies on clubbing (they tot they are like Angmoh of higher class)

    After SCREWING AROUND, at OLD AGE they WANT SOCIETY TO BAIL THEM OUT acting pitiful ?

    There are many irresponsible people around. They will pretend to be pitiful, NEVER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the consequences brought upon by their very own decisions and actions.

    THIS IS THEIR CHOICE.
    THEY MADE THAT DECISION TO SCREW AROUND

    1. Why SG NS (24mths) is 2x of Taiwan NS (new 12mths)?

    Luckily they are not stupid, gullible and naive like you.

    My answer:
    We must compare both SG and Taiwan NS men CURRENT salary and NOT Taiwan yet to implement newly revised salary.

    So, what is Taiwan current NS men salary ? Yes, NT6510 or SGD284.94.

    I await to see which MP dare to raise what you (birdie) mentined in parliament. Or which opposition parties in next GE dare to promise voters if they vote for xxx parties and NS period will be reduced ? Renumeration wise maybe still debatable and still can discuss ?

    Hahahaha..
    Opposition like birdie only dare to talk big behind monikers. hahahaha

    I bet you that no Opposition will dare to promise that NS period will be reduced.

    Birdie, do you have the balls to take up PAP mandate strong challenge and go see your Opposition master with your information?

    PAP mandate strong:
    Well you can ask Leon Perera or other WP MPs or PSP to propose the topic in next parliament meeting.
    Quite sure you can adequately furnished all the infos they req’d.

  • Singaporeans R Free Riders:

    Tax is 40% in Singapore: If the law legislates that, don’t be stupid. There is no country will enlist foreigners in their army except Singapore.

    Yes, I agreed with you but you did not volunteer for it like the man in below video.

    Lee Wong serve the US community and serve the US army.

    Did you serve the community of your wife’s country ?
    btw, you have not answer my question 2.
    2. Do you divorce her and dump her ?

    The higher you go, the lesser Singaporean Malays and Singaporean Indians you see. You got to question that.

    Our policies aims to lock Singaporeans in so they cannot run out of the island. This is done through 2-2.5 years of NS. Thereafer, reservists call-up at anytime for 2 weeks after completing NS till age 40. If you are an officer, till 50 years old. BTO flats was designed to lock you in with the waiting time. 3.6 years (the earlist to get a BTO HDB flat) to 5 years. On average, 4 years to get a BTO HDB key of the flat. The minimum occupation period further adds another 5 years after getting the flat key before you can sell your flat. In total, PAPigs have locked the Singaporean for at least 11 years into Singapore. By that time, one is stuck within Singapore`s gravitational field and when you realise what has been done to you, it is very likely one finds it hard to even attempt to leave the island.

    The key is to keep the populace unthinking and move through the system uncritically before reality hits. Today, we have allowed so many foreigners to become citizens and chronically overcrowd the country to the point it has caused strain, anxiety and stress to our lives.

    That`s the hard truth.

    TRex, I totally agree and in-line with your thoughts.
    And the 30 yrs housing loan simply locked up unthinking Singaporeans until they turned useless and deemed unproductive to the country.

    The invisible cuffs sunk into the fresh and soul. Hard, not easy, but not impossible to break free if we are still young and aware.

    Free-rider, I am no fan of oppos given them sufficient power, they are just another ruling party. And stop behaving like gangster asking for balls as if yourself need extras.

    No one in politics will speak up for Singaporean males, we just got to vote with our feet. Or else those those grab driver, panda food uber eat will be your career.

    May be not.

    When EV is matured, AI driving becomes a reality, which will be in 20 years time, you may not even have the luxury for such delivery jobs.

    Just like my uncle used to say, if you don’t study hard, you will deliver night soil. Nay, want also no chance now!

    This is your life:
    4~20 years old : prisoner of school
    20~60 years old : prisoner of loans
    30~50 years old : prisoner of your child and old parents

    SG male : prisoner almost whole life on NS
