Empty Ballot Boxes for PE 2011: where is the integrity, PM Lee?

As the controversy on the empty ballot boxes from the Presidential Election 2011 rages on, I recall what PM Lee, the heir-anointed to the Lee Dynasty which is now floundering, pompously said about the AHPETC hawker centre cleaning incident.

He said “good politics is first and foremost about integrity”. He asked the Workers Party to clear “the doubts about the integrity of his fellow MPs”.

What shocks most people is why PM Lee, the world’s highest paid head of state, did not see it important enough to personally answer the question. In the UK, PM David Cameron, who earns a fraction of PM Lee’s humongous salary (self-voted), would have  put himself in the line of fire and answered the question.

The regime also once bragged that we have a first world parliament. A first world parliament where the PM dares not take questions? A first world parliament where the dominant ruling party’s 81 MPs ( Opposition 6) simply rubber stamp everything put in their way?

I have said many times before that PM Lee has a penchant for lip service.

He should practise what he preaches about “good politics is first and foremost about integrity” and clears the doubts about the ballot boxes and the integrity of his government.

This is a Presidential Election we are talking about. Remember, the incumbent President won by a whisker, 35.2% of the votes, a mere 0.34% winning margin.

PM Lee can run but he cannot hide.

  4. I thought the PAP have 80 seats while the WP have 7.

    • You are right. With WP Lee Li Lian’s victory in the PE by election in January, the opposition boasts of one more in its ranks.
