Mr JB Jeyaretnam's new Reform Party is taking shape. Edmund Ng from the National Solidarity Party (NSP) has quit the party and will join the Reform Party.
Unlike most people, I think it's a good idea for JBJ to start a new party. His relationship with the Worker's Party is shot and there is a chance the Reform Party could end up the biggest opposition party after the next general election. All they need to to win 2 seats, and that's it. Hard, but not impossible.
It's the flip-side of how successful the PAP has been crushing all opposition in Singapore. A new party can just pop up and be the biggest opposition party even if it has no history behind it. And even that is not a problem for the Reform Party as JBJ is at the helm. Fireworks is in the air.
