A Big Yawn

With a General Elections (GE) coming up, to the surprise of no one, the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) is once again attacking the Worker’s Party (WP) on the management of the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC). They had been trying to do that ever since they lost the Aljunied GRC in the last GE and like always; Singaporeans are treating the case with a big yawn.

The PAP needs to get this through their heads; this issue is just not a vote-getter! 

Singaporeans are worried about the CPF Min Sum, high property prices, and the high cost of living. No one cares about the financial statements of the town councils as long as rubbish get collected and the floor get swept. Even for Singaporeans who do care, this issue rank far far below the fact that most Singaporeans will never be able to take out their full amount of CPF.

So if the PAP is thinking that the WP would lose Aljunied due to this; sorry but that’s not going to happen. Get rid of the CPF Min Sum and you may have a chance; a debate over a Auditor-General’s report is not going to change anything on the ground.

You may be right in regards to the die hard.
For fence sitters who are in finance/accounts or administration, they may have lost them

And this case will not get them back. I mean just a few months ago, you got the CPF Min Sum which locked in $155,000. Now you are saying the WP is dishonest due to what; $20-$30k? That's just not going to wash with the Singapore public.
