It is bad enough that the PAP has reserved the Presidential Election and that Mdm Halimah Yacob has become the President without a contest.
At the same time, Mdm Halimah has left the Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC short of an MP and without a minority representative. Then the PAP says that there is no need for a by-election to fill her seat.
This is an abuse of power. The PAP sees itself bigger than Singapore and continues to do as it pleases. Such unchecked control endangers the future of this nation.
This is why the SDP has initiated legal action to ask the courts to rule on the matter of a by-election when an MP vacates his/her seat. (See here).
But such action entails financial costs and no one party has the means to shoulder such an expense by itself.
We, therefore, call on all Singaporeans to contribute to this cause. Please do your part and financially support the effort to stop the PAP from continuing its abuse of power. If everyone does a little, our load will lighten and the role of holding the PAP accountable made more effective. So please donate as well as help us spread this message far and wide. Remember, we’re all in this together.
