It was recently announced that Lawrence Wong has been made the new leader of PAP’s 4G team. This means that it is likely he will be our next prime minister (PM).
This announcement comes after about 2 years since Heng Swee Keat, the previous PM-apparent, announced his retirement. Earlier, PM Lee said that they didn’t have anyone in mind because they “do not have a spare candidate”.
Yet, Lawrence Wong came as no surprised because Singaporeans could guess that the PAP was deciding between him, Chan Chun Sing, and possibly Ong Yew Kung.
The next prime minister once again comes from PAP’s limited elite circle.
Singaporeans knew for sure that the PM role would be given to someone from their “elite circle”. This “elite circle” doesn’t include “backbenchers” from PAP either.
No matter how much our mainstream media tries to spread the propaganda about Lawrence Wong being some new success story, he is no different from the other PAP leaders. Scholars with no sense of how anyone lesser than them survives in this country.
Lawrence Wong didn’t even get a unanimous vote within is party. He only received 15 out of 19 votes. Bear in mind these 19 voters are from the PAP. Imagine if Singaporeans could vote for our next PM, wouldn’t there be an even smaller percentage of people voting for him?
Singaporeans do not have any other options because once again the PAP is making decisions for us.
i guess … the option was given at the GE?
unfortunately the majority voted for the blank-checque party
The best the country can offer, it’s lucky there is no need to bring in foreign talent to do the job
The next GE is more than just about voting to change the PM. It is to change the whole gov. This has dragged on for so long that even a small majority still jas faith in the current gov but that gov has decided to place its faith on others
