Good news; Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s surgery for prostate cancer was successful and a full recovery is expected. Bad news; he needed surgery in the first place.
PM Lee having been diagnosed with lymphoma, blood cell tumours that develop from white blood cells, in 1992 but last I heard, he had made a full recovery. Now instead of lymphoma, he has been diagnosed and treated for another kind of cancer.
Now from what I read, survivors of prostrate cancer can with proper medication and good diet live long healthy lives but with our PM having survived 2 different kinds of cancer, it is time for the PAP (People’s Action Party) to seriously put a No. 2 in place to take over.
With a General Election on the way, this is the perfect time. I know that currently, Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean is the No. 2 but there had always been doubts if he is the man that will take over as Prime Minister after PM Lee steps down.
