These are my thoughts and hope for the Singapre Parliament after 7th May 2011:-
1) The Opposition Parties captured at least 1 GRC & 3 to 4 SMC seats - This will indicate Singapore has come of age in political maturity. There are now opposing views and ideas competing for the people's acceptance and endorsement. This will only be for the good of Singapore as there is now quality "political capital" in Singapore Parliament - be it coming from the Ruling Party or the Opposition Parties. This is win-win for Singapore's future and we need to secure this kind of a future! Singapore being a First World Economy deserves such a quality Parliament!
2) The Ruling Party made a clean sweep of all the seats in Parliament and the obstrusive NMP & NCMP Scheme kicked in - The status quo remains - more laws and legislation are passed to enable the Ruling Party to consolidate and control political thought; more upgrading in estates; less discussion and consultation on policies as the Ruling Party wants to exert strong and effective governance; people feels alienated from the Government as their aspiration and dreams are not addressed and pursued to their satisfaction. There is a cynical perception that the Government knows best and the people's views and concern do not matter. Such a Parliment will be a laughing-stock for the whole world!
