Tweet by SDP's Secretary General Chee Soon Juan to PM Lee Hsien Loong

Singapore Democratic Party (SDP)'s Secretary General, Dr Chee Soon Juan sent a tweet directly to Secretary General of People's Action Party (PAP) and Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on twitter in response to his speech for the PAP60 rally.

Below is SDP's comments in full on Mr Lee's speech:


 

PM Lee Hsien Loong said in his speech that the opposition have not articulated a vision for Singapore. This is untrue. The SDP published Dare To Change: An Alternative Vision for Singapore in 1994.

I had more recently described a new vision for Singapore in an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal. Mr Lee ignores these and claims that the opposition has not articulated one.

I, therefore, tweeted the WSJ op-ed to him this afternoon.

But more than just a vision, the SDP has laid out concrete and comprehensive alternative policies in key areas such as housing, healthcare, population, the Malay community, education, Ministerial salaries, and (soon-to-be launched) the economy. The SDP's campaign for the next GE will be focused on these alternative policies.

As announced we will be launching our GE Campaign on 10 Jan 2015 and stepping up our effort in preparation for the elections which many expect will be held in 2015.

Chee Soon Juan
Secretary-General
