GRC

Any concerns about the GRC system can be addressed but don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. NMP Raj Joshua Thomas said that the GRC system is a uniquely Singaporean feature of our election that we must keep.

The GRC system is more than just about minority representation. It is about keeping politics in Singapore multiracial by ensuring that aspiring political parties are multiracial in their composition. This, in turn, will ensure that their are multiracial in their outlook. Removing it will have grave consequences.

PSP's arguments have 'strong stench of xenophobia and racism', says CEO Devadas Krishnadas

Founder and CEO of Future-Moves Group Devadas Krishnadas described PSP Mr Leong Mun Wai and Ms Hazel Poa's conduct as 'deplorable'. He said they were not in the House to participate in discussion but to push a political 'red' button and to play to the fears and anxieties of many Singaporeans. Underlying their arguments was ‘a strong stench of both xenophobia and racism’.

FTAs and CECA are economic treaties which benefit Singapore and Singaporeans. They are not some conspiracy to ‘sell’ the country, Mr Devadas said. He accused PSP of engaging in 'ugly populist, conspiracy theorising, fear and hatred stoking politics' and asked if this is what we want for Singaporean politics and for Singapore.

Ong Ye Kung speaks on the FTA strategy and the falsehoods surrounding CECA

"Simply put, we are too small to survive on our own, and we need to tap into global markets to earn a living, and be self-reliant. If we accept the basic reality that Singapore needs the world to earn a living, then we would realise the fundamental importance of all our FTAs. They are a keystone of the economic super-structure we have built. We could not have advanced the welfare of Singaporeans to the degree we have without FTAs.

When you attack FTAs, and worse if your attack succeeds, you are undermining the fundamentals of our existence, of the way we earn a living, all the sectors FTAs are supporting, and the hundreds of thousands of Singaporean jobs created in these sectors."

CECA

Debunking the myth that CECA gives Indian nationals unconditional access to Singapore and immigration privileges.

Singapore’s success was not built overnight. We’re a small red dot on the map and have to constantly jostle to maintain our place in the world. We are nothing but a dust speck in the global arena if it weren’t for our success. Let’s not forget how precarious our position is nor be swayed by the baseless comments of netizens online.
