Dr Lam Pin Min

Undefeated.

6 years after he left Eagle Eye Centre to serve in the Ministry in August 2014, Dr Lam will be back at Eagle Eye Centre (EEC) to head the unit he helped set up before he left.

"The ability to embrace change with confidence and hope is my formula and it has put me in good stead to handle any eventualities and uncertainties in the future."

PAP Government, Singapore Success

No one recognises a hero who prevents something bad from happening, and it didn't happen.

How can it be that after more than 20 years, WP is 'unable' to build a single MP office for their residents?

Is WP such an unprogressive party? Each MP collects $192k in a year and a number of them have been MPs for at least 2 terms.

Their combined resources are more than enough to build one office even without calling for donations.

WP have every means to build comfortable air-conditioned offices but they prefer to stick with open sessions in the void deck to set up a very visible inequality to make themselves look like victims in a system.

PAP General Election 2025

The younger voters want politics and not governance.

They hope to see an injection of excitement and drama in parliament, or as you put it, diversity.

Unfortunately, it means the government will have to divert resources from governance to politics.

This was what Lee Kuan Yew and his successors fought so hard against because there is so much work to do merely keeping Singapore up on the tightrope.
