To the PAP: 10 reasons why people will cast protest vote in Singapore General Election
Here are 10 reasons why people will cast protest vote in the next General Election:
1. The rising cost of public housing which is supposedly subsidised.
2. Foreign workers depressing wages and robbing Singaporeans of jobs.
3. The poor seems to be getting poorer, and their numbers seem to be increasing.
4. Ever rising cost of living.
5. Sky-high ministerial salaries.
6. The widespread perception that the PAP has become too elitist.
7. The PAP has lost touch with the ground. I see my MP only when GE is around the corner.
8. Questionable payments and fines eg TV licence, exit toll at Woodlands Checkpoint, late payment fee for TV licence and road tax, ERP
9. Lack of freedom of expression
10. Unlevel playing field in the political arena.
(This is by no means an exhaustive list. You may add to it.)
In all fairness, the current administration has brought tremendous progress and prosperity to Singapore that is the envy of many countries. But the world has changed, and if it fails to change and continues to be seen as too authoritarian and persists in talking down to the people, there will be protest vote.
