The latest Cabinet reshuffle is disappointing, and signals the PAP-led government’s clear lack of preparation and direction. It is incredulous to see that Mr Lawrence Wong and Mr Ong Ye Kung have been skirted to head different ministries barely a year after taking charge of Education and Transport respectively. While the Prime Minister has apologised […]
Public outreach in our new outfit. Did you spot us at Elias Mall? Our Chairman Desmond Lim is back to walk the ground with the team after his recovery from heart bypass operation, and he would like to thank residents and supporters once again for the well wishes.
In a long over due move, the government has announced that will scrap the scheme where Dependent’s Pass (DP) holders are excluded from companies’ foreign worker quotas. The move to exclude DP-holders from foreign worker quotas – which has endured for over a decade – has potentially cost Singaporeans tens of thousands of job opportunities […]
Our team visited 167A Punggol East. Great to keep up with the residents in the constituency. We missed one of our resident because he’s not home during our house visit, after receiving a message from the resident. We went back and managed to catch up with him and spoke to each other for quite some […]
The Constitution (Article 152) states three things when it comes to protection of race and religious minorities in Singapore. Namely, the government must: • care for the interests of race and religious minorities• exercise its functions in such manner as to recognise the special position of the Malays, and• protect the political, educational, religious, economic, […]
Singaporeans below the age of 21 cannot vote on our nation’s leaders. Singapore is the only nation in ASEAN, and one of very few countries in the world such as Lebanon and Fiji, to continue this draconian practice. The ear-straining justification given by the government is that Singaporeans below 21 years old are not mature […]
The SDA Team conducted house visits at 668B Edgefield Plains, in the absence of our Chairman Desmond Lim who is recuperating from surgery and long-time member and kaki Kelvin Ong who has been called up for reservist. We are happy to receive such a warm welcome from residents!
In the SDA’s manifesto, we spoke about the need to cut extravagant and unnecessary government spending so that Singaporeans do not have to be burdened with higher taxes. One such extravagant and unnecessary spending is on the appointment of Mayors of Community Development Councils (CDCs). The Mayors’ role is to oversee the CDC, and each […]
The SDA is disappointed with the measures announced in Budget 2021. With incomes stagnating, rising under-employment, and surging cost of living, these measures will put a further strain on Singaporeans. (1) Trickle-down effects of the petrol tax hike on average Singaporeans Petrol tax has been hiked by up to 23 percent. This is up from […]
The Nominated MP (NMP) Scheme is the PAP-led government’s way of telling you that you can have your cake and eat it too. That Singaporeans can have their voices heard without needing to elect an MP from the opposition or otherwise. Singaporeans shouldn’t buy that nonsense. After all this is the same government that been […]
