New PAP candidates will speak up on national policy #SGelections

AS TIME goes by, more of the personalities of the new PAP candidates and their views on national policy will emerge, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said on Saturday. Speaking on the sidelines of a family carnival organised by the NTUC's Employment and Employability Institute (e2i), Mr Teo noted that voters respond to new politicians on two levels. While the first and more important would be how they work the ground and respond to residents' needs and concerns, the second is how they distinguish themselves on the national stage. The other job of MPs, he pointed out, is to contribute to national policy-making in Parliament. 'As time evolves, you will see more of their personality and their views come out,' he said. Read the full story in The Sunday Times tomorrow.
