VIDEO: Dr Ang Yong Guan says PAP has ‘no soul’ left

Posted by singaporege2011 on April 29, 2011

In a mixture of Chinese and Hokkien, SDP candidate Dr Ang Yong Guan said in his maiden election speech that the PAP has ‘no soul’ left due to its near dominance in parliament:

Dr Ang said the PAP government has been ‘complacent’ because of its dominance and that many Singaporeans feel disconnected from it.

He added that a First Class economy should have First class politics as well.

The ruling PAP faces its toughest election to date with public unhappiness and disgruntlement with its policies at an all-time high.

While even PAP leaders themselves expect to lose votes in the coming election, it remains to be seen if it is enough to deny the PAP its traditional two-third majority in parliament which enables it to rule Singapore without any checks and balances.
