The following is a letter by Leong Sze Hian to the Today newspaper:

NOW that Mas Selamat Kastari has been captured, Singaporeans must be waiting in anticipation for his interrogation to be completed, to find out how he escaped.

I would like to suggest that the Committee of Inquiry be reconvened so that we can take appropriate measures to ensure that this does not happen again.

In the interest of fairness, the reprimand of the officers concerned may also be reviewed to see if any of them may be less to blame, in the light of new information. After all, they were judged based on the Committee of Inquiry’s understanding of the most likely escape scenario at the time.

民主党40岁了! 放眼扩大竞选版图

民主党在本月6日迎来创党40周年。 该党在官方脸书专页发文指出,该党也着眼扩大竞选版图,持续发展和本地政治生态保持关联。 民主党配合40周年也进行了2020年选举后检讨,以及提出一系列关于该党发展的倡议。 民主党自1980年8月6日创党以来,参加了10届选举,从1980年角逐三系,1988年最高竞逐18席。自1991年,七届选举中平均都派出了10.3位候选人出战。 该党也指出,过去10届选举,民主党在44个单选区和12个集选区,总共派出了97位候选人–44人出战单选区、53人出战集选区。 在21个单选区,民主党平均得票率都在40巴仙以上,以及夺下五次单选区议席,包括波东巴西(1984、1988和1991年),以及1991年在义顺北(蒋才正)和武吉甘柏(林孝谆)胜选。 与此同时,也在两次补选–1992年的马林百列集选区和2016年武吉巴督单选区补选上阵。民主党称,多达六次的单选区竞选,以及1992年的马林巴列集选区补选,该党也面对多角战,都能得到第二高的得票率。 然而,民主党也声称,该党扩大规模,即便面对三角或多角战,都是一个强而有力的竞争者。 民主党在1991年获得15万8341票的最高得票率,或39.4巴仙,当年该党派出了18名候选人。 该党放眼10年后迈入50周年,并认为若要持续发展和本地政治生态保持关联,形塑新加坡的民主历史,该党需着眼扩大竞选版图。
