With public anger against the ruling PAP reaching a peak, the opposition is quietly confident of its chances in the coming general election on 7 May.

Former NCMP Steve Chia predicted that the opposition is poised to win at least one GRC in the coming election.

He also expressed confidence that the opposition parties contesting Chua Chu Kang, Bishan and Aljunied GRCs ‘stand the best chance’ of winning a Group Representation Constituency this time round, according a report by the state media.

Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) candidate James Gomez is equally upbeat.

Speaking to reporters after submitting his political donation forms at the Elections Department, he said:

“I think the opposition fraternity, on its own as a whole, is poised to score a significant victory against the ruling party.”

When asked how many more seats the opposition could win in the May 7 election, he replied:

“It would depend on the swing of votes against the ruling party. It has been put as high as 10 per cent, and this would certainly translate to a significant number of seats.”

    Can we wait for another 5 years?
