DPM Heng Swee Keat calls for integrity regarding the '10 million population' issue; PSP's Dr Tan Cheng Bock says transparency is needed

After stating that he never did say that Singapore plans to increase the population to 10 million, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat has now come out to say that integrity is very important in politics.  DPM Heng was referring to what Singapore Democratic Party’s (SDP) Dr Chee Soon Juan had mentioned during the televised live debate on July 1. Speaking to the media during a walkabout this morning (July 3), he said: «You erect a boogeyman, and then after that you declare success. I personally feel all along that integrity is very important. »The reason why so many of our businesses have been doing well overseas is that Singaporeans are known to have integrity. So we must keep honesty and integrity in our system, and we must expect that of all candidates."

Against NCMP scheme? You can leave the seats to other parties: PAP's Chan Chun Sing to WP

The People's Action Party's (PAP) Chan Chun Sing had some choice words when Progress Singapore Party's Hazel Poa and Workers' Party's (WP) Kenneth Foo expressed their misgivings about the Non-Constituency MP (NCMP) scheme. Those who do not find the scheme beneficial are welcome to leave the seats to other opposition parties, Chan said during the Mandarin debate Zaobao Live: Face the Voters earlier on Thursday (July 2). The discussion over the NCMP scheme was precipitated by a comment from a member of the public, who questioned if the NCMP scheme was a «backdoor» to Parliament and if it was «unfair» to elected MPs. Chan, who is also Minister for Trade and Industry, maintained that the scheme guarantees that there will be opposition voices in Parliament «no matter the circumstance». The scheme gives rise to «better debates», Chan said, adding that the government was not afraid of opposing views as «gold is not afraid of fire». Taking the floor, Poa raised her reservations with the scheme, saying: "I have some suspicions about the aim of this scheme. I feel it could be something that is not beneficial to the opposition parties.

Pofma office to issue correctional directions to Lim Tean for falsehood on his social media accounts

On July 2, the alternate authority for the Minister of Education instructed the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (Pofma) office to issue correctional directions to Lim Tean's YouTube channel and the Facebook page of opposition party Peoples Voice (PV). In a statement, the Pofma office revealed that the correctional directions were issued because a Facebook Live video on July 1 contained a falsehood regarding Government expenditure on foreign students. The same video was also posted on Lim's YouTube channel Tean Lim. The Pofma office added that Lim was also previously issued a correctional direction on Dec 16 last year for making false statements on the same topic. The facts of the case were detailed on the Government's fact-checking website Factually. It was explained that Lim had said: «We spend a quarter of a billion dollars providing free education for foreigners every year».

Reform Party now wants National Service reduced to 6 months

Reform Party's (RP) secretary-general Kenneth Jeyaretnam explained the party's proposed reduction of National Service (NS) to six months during a Facebook Live session on July 2.  «We want to ultimately have a fully professional army,» said Jeyaretnam, in response to a viewer's question on the proposed shortened conscription in RP's manifesto.  «I don't see why we cannot reduce National Service, particularly if it's broadened to include women,» he said, referencing the manifesto which states that women should also be able to benefit from the opportunities of NS.  In the comments section, the viewer asked if the party thought that a six-month conscription would be effective in establishing a credible army.  Jeyaretnam cited Switzerland and Taiwan as models for conscription of around six months and further claimed that Singapore does not have «an immediate threat from our neighbours at the moment».
