After a week of talks, all the major opposition parties in Singapore have finally confirm one thing; they will contest all the seats in the coming General Elections. I only have one thing to say to this: “About bloody time!”
It’s amazing that after over 40 years, this is only the first time the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) will have to contest all the seats in a General Elections (GE). In the grand scheme of things, it might not be worth that much as the PAP is expected to win the GE easily but for the first time, everyone in Singapore has an actual chance to cast his/her vote.
That is a step in the right direction. I just hope there is no screw-up on Nomination Day and for the first time, every Singaporean has a chance to vote.
