What is this election about?

To me this election is not about the who is a better MP, or who gets upgrading or can run the town council better. This election is about changing course. Jamming the brakes and moving in another direction.

I agree with the PAP that they have done much to promote and bring in investments. Most of their policies are pro business and helped develope Singapore into what we are now. However, we cannot use old formula in a new environment. The PAP to me is choosing investment over the lives of the Singaporean. They strongly believe that without the investments Singapore is doomed. I partly agree with them. However, if they are paid millions to come out with the obvious solution, I think they are not worth what they are paid. Yes it is a difficult problem and there is no easy solution. No one said it is easy but if you pay youself so much then you better be able to come with the solutions.

I am voting for the WP Aljuinied this time to slow down the PAP in the wrong direction.

I hope WP would not disappoint me and move the government in the right direction. I am a forgiving person and is willing to give WP many chances.

I will not be threaten by a slum like aljunied. If necessary I hope WP could raise funds for the constituency . If Aljuinied choses WP, then Aljunied will have to stand together to build a better future with or without government's funding. Let them know WP is serious in their contest and show them that WP can do better than the PAP. Show them the strenght of Singapore community when they stand together! WP it is up to your leadship. Good luck and all the best. You have my vote.

Yes. This GE2011 is about changing course. But, only 5 WP MPs from Aljunied GRC in parliament will not be able to change course because PAP will still have more than 2/3 of parliament seats to do whatever thing they like. The 5 WP MPs the most can make some noise in parliament debate but when come to voting 5 of them against 82 PAP yesmen/women all laws proposed by PAP will still pass without any change. On the other hand, the 5 WP MPs will never be able to make any of their proposed laws passed because 82 PAP yesmen/yomen will vote against them. You need to understand how our political system work. To stop any PAP's future laws to pass in the parliament, you need at least 1/3 opposition MPs in the parliament provided all opposition MPs have the same decision. I personally do not expect this will happen in this election. However, if you do not vote for WP, then there will be risk that all MPs are PAP even though PAP has less than half of the total votes. Now, do you see the issue of GRC system? It is crap and should be abolished immediately by a new government which is of course not likely to be PAP.
