How do l vote?
My GRC Holland-Bukit Timah is being contested by two formidable teams. The incumbent team of the PAP won the last contest with 60.1%. The SDP is fielding a new team with Dr Chee Soon Juan, Professor Paul Tambyah, Sidek Mallek and Chong Wei Fung. I have friends on both teams, but there are bigger national issues to consider.
Last night, the team from the SDP did a walkabout around my area and came to my house. They shared their vision for Singapore and asked for my vote. I listened carefully to what they had to say and will continue to think it through over the next week. Today, I plan to attend their rally to learn more about the candidates.
In fact l just came back from the SDP rally at Chua Chu Kang Stadium where l shook hands with some SDP candidates. At the rally many Singaporeans were happy to see me and many took photos with me.
I look forward to meeting the candidates from the PAP (Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Christopher de Souza, Liang Eng Hwa and Sim Ann) as well and likewise, I will attend the PAP rally tomorrow evening .
We should make an effort to listen to all parties and attend their rallies – closely examining their policies and their records. We are looking for candidates who will speak up for us in Parliament. A lot is at stake for future generations. Let us vote wisely and carefully.
