Vote opposition and you may get a weaker govt: Ng Eng Hen #SGelections

Vote opposition and you may get a weaker govt: Ng Eng Hen #SGelections

EDUCATION Minister Ng Eng Hen on Saturday cautioned Singaporeans that by voting for the opposition, they may unintentionally weaken the Government and perhaps even cause a change in Government. He urged voters to realise this because 'freak results' can happen, as they have in other countries. Speaking during a walkabout in Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC on Saturday morning, he said the system already allows for alternative voices in Parliament. If Singaporeans go to the May 7 polls thinking that more opposition would help further their interests, the outcome could be 'dangerous', warned Dr Ng. 'Can a weak government deliver to him better transportation, better homes, better healthcare? And if you vote just to weaken the government, how can that help you, your own interests?' he added.
