Dear Opposition,

I read with great interest and also wondered why podcasting are NOT ALLOWED in the election, I truly believe its a truly effective means of dispensing responsible and truthful information and if use rightly and respectfully, will in fact raise political awareness for Singapore

Banning it without giving valid reasons is immature and goes against human rights, some Singaporeans such as the old and the bed ridden might like to know what is going on as political TV coverage airtime for opposition parties is so miserable  and restrictive and attending rallies might be a cumbersome affair for old people as well as those who lived far away from rally vicinity.

As for me podcasting is crucial cos most of my time is spent working in China and I would like to be updated with news from home

Banning it will deprive me from getting updated and its not democratic
