The more parties, the merrier!
Yesterday (29 July), blogger Roy Ngerng — fresh from sparring with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the Supreme Court — posted a new blog post. This time, instead of educating readers about the intricacies of CPF, he’s teaching us how to vote in the coming General Election.
Ngerng’s unveiled his master plan for an ideal Singapore Parliament, which consists of 8 political parties and the Government will be ruled via a coalition Government.
Roy Ngerng’s plan resembles the Weimar Government of Germany in the 1930s. The Weimar Government consisted of 40 political parties that ruled together as a coalition Government. The vast number of political parties was to ensure the political interests of all the people were considered in decision-making.
The Weimar Government ended up collapsing in 1933 due to various factors, including the opposing voices within the Government, eventually giving rise to Nazi Germany in the same year.
But we’re sure his plan will work out without a hitch.
MustShareNews presents Ngerng’s master plan and how you can help him achieve it — if you want.
Ngerng’s prediction for the coming General Election
Before delving into his master plan, Ngerng gave an assessment on how he thinks the General Election will pan out.
Ngerng believes that the Workers’ Party (WP) will be able to retain all current electoral divisions and win addtional seats from a Group Representation Constituency (GRC) and a Single Member Constituency (SMC).
Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) is the fastest improving opposition party in Ngerng’s eye, and should be able to capture a GRC.
The Singapore People’s Party (SPP) may be able to clinch a GRC along with the two SMCs that they are contesting (Mountbatten SMC and Potong Pasir SMC).
Ngerng backs the National Solidarity Party (NSP) to capture Choa Chu Kang GRC and Pioneer SMC.
The Singaporeans First Party (SingFirst) may also capture a GRC either Tanjong Pagar GRC or Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC.
Ngerng reserves any clear prediction for Reform Party (RP) and the People’s Power Party (PPP), preferring to suggest instead that both parties have a good chance of winning a GRC each.
Ngerng predicts seven opposition parties in Singapore to each win at least a GRC in the coming General Election.
Presentation of the grand plan
Enough prediction, let us get on with Ngerng’s grand plan:
Ngerng envisions a Parliament with the opposition parties forming a majority Government with at least 2/3 of the seats. When that happens, according to Ngerng, the new Government will be able to implement policies to protect Singaporeans.
The new Government will consist of a coalition formed by various opposition parties. Ngerng ensures us that the opposition parties are already planning to meet in the coming Monday (3 August) to discuss which constituencies to run, in order to prevent three-corner fights.
How can you help achieve his plan?
Now the onus falls on you, fellow Singaporeans, to help Ngerng achieve his master plan for the good of
his ego Singapore.
Ngerng explains that we need to look broadly at the electoral boundaries and plan our votes to achieve the Government that we want. Once the opposition parties are voted into government, they will be able to form a coalition government.
Where do we need to vote for Opposition?
According to Ngerng, these are the constituencies need to be won by Opposition in order for his master plan to work out.
Ngerng wants you to vote opposition in constituencies where Opposition are already in power, and constituencies where the Opposition won more than 40% of the votes at the last election.
But that’s not enough!
To make up enough numbers for a two-thirds majority government led by the Opposition, voters will also need to vote for constituencies where the Opposition won more than 35% of the votes at the last election.
But that’s not enough!
Ngerng is callling out to all Ang Mo Kio GRC residents to vote PM Lee out of Ang Mo Kio, and for all Tanjong Pagar GRC residents to vote Minister Chan Chun Sing out of Tanjong Pagar.
Only then, it will finally be enough, and the political landscape of Singapore will look like this —
The Parliament make-up will look like this —
– WP: 28 seats
– PAP:20 seats
– SDP: 13 seats
– SPP: 7 seats
– SingFirst: 6 seats
– RP: 6 seats
– PPP: 5 seats
– NSP: 4 seats
In the master plan, Opposition parties will occupy 63 seats (70.1% of the Parliament) and form a coalition Government that will implement new policies to finally protect Singaporeans.
Ngerng also believes that this coalition Government structure will allows us to retain key PAP ministers to oversee the Singapore’s financial economy – Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang, and Second Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran.
Ngerng thoughtfully left Minister Shanmugaratnam, Minister Lim and Minister Iswaran’s constituencies (Jurong GRC and West Coast GRC) all untouched in his master plan.
Final advice from Ngerng
In addition, Ngerng dispensed some precious advice for all voters in the coming General Election
1. Anyone who enters into a three-corner fight is likely a mole and should be written off. You should not vote for this person.
2. Dont spoil your vote, do your part, for this plan
3. #VoteOpposition #VoteforYourFuture
We certainly hope that Ngerng’s master plan enlightened you on how to vote in the coming General Election.
