Statement from the Singapore People’s Party
The SPP views the Media Development Authority’s latest licensing regime for websites with grave concern. We find it even more worrying that the regulations were not brought for debate in Parliament, the body of elected representatives of the people. As such, NCMP Mrs Lina Chiam has filed an adjournment motion to speak on the matter at the next Parliament sitting, pending the confirmation of the Parliament Secretariat.
In raising this motion in Parliament, the SPP also wants to be as representative of the community-at-large as possible. We therefore seek to hear from bloggers and concerned citizens as to how the MDA’s latest internet regulations that will affect their activities.
