Singapore PM Lee returns to energy with clear mandate


Singapore, July 11

Covid Handling

  • Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s People’s Action Party is in energy since 1965
  • Friday’s election was broadly seen as a referendum on Lee’s dealing with of the Covid outbreak

The People’s Action Party (PAP), in energy since 1965, received 83 of 93 parliamentary seats or 61.2 per cent of the vote — down from practically 70 per cent it had within the 2015 common election. In 2015, the PAP secured 83 seats out of 89 seats in 29 constituencies.

The shock this time was that the opposition Workers’ Party secured 10 seats — its greatest consequence. Friday’s election was broadly seen as a referendum on the Prime Minister Lee’s dealing with of the Covid outbreak. Singapore is at the moment going through the town state’s worst recession with economic system projected to shrink between 7 and four per cent. — PTI
