Chia Thye Poh on PAP rule

“Under the PAP rule, there is no genuine parliamentary democracy. In essence, it has been practising a one-party rule. It seems to want to remain as the sole, dominant party, with other smaller parties acting as marginal opposition and ‘sparring partners’ for new PAP MPs. The opposition parties will never be allowed to grow strong…There is always the danger of one-party rule slipping into one-man rule, and worse still, into dynastic rule.”
Chia Thye Poh, Philotin: No. 2, Aug 1989
