Our reader says:"Give Ms Tin Pei Ling the space to prove herself. MM Lee Kuan Yew became PM at age 35...." #SGelections

'The recent furore over the People's Action Party's youngest candidate is all about nothing ('Tin Pei Ling 'a good grassroots leader''; Wednesday).

The baby-boomer generation is past and we now have a younger and better educated populace. Give Ms Tin the space to prove herself and her critics wrong. Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew became Singapore's first prime minister at age 35, young by world standards, but proved to be a heavyweight on the world stage. His transformation of Singapore to what it is today is legendary.'
