Hopes for Singapore

  • That our people recognise that an elected opposition presence in Parliament is critical. All Singaporeans, no matter their political persuasion or preference, should be represented in Singapore’s highest law-making body.
  • That a rational and respectable opposition grows its presence in Parliament to provide responsible competition to the PAP, thereby ensuring a robust system of checks and balances for the good of Singapore and Singaporeans.
  • That Singaporeans take a deep interest in the country, their communities and neighbours, and speak to one another with kindness and empathy, even those who may disagree with them.
