Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew quits Cabinet post - Yahoo! News

Singapore founding father Lee Kuan Yew says he's stepping down as a Cabinet minister after his party last week had its worst election result since independence in 1965. Lee and fellow former prime minister Goh Chok Tong said in a joint statement Saturday that they would quit their Cabinet posts. They said the younger generation wants to be more engaged in the decisions that affect them. The 87-year old Lee was prime minister from 1959 to 1990 after which Goh took over until 2004. Both won parliament seats in the May 7 election. The ruling People's Action Party won 60 percent of the vote, down from 67 percent in 2006 and 75 percent in 2001. The Workers Party won six seats, the most the opposition has held since independence.
