Highly acclaimed actor Neo Swee Lin was a guest speaker at the Singapore Democratic Party’s rally in Bukit Batok today (3 May). At the rally she appealed to PM Lee Hsien Loong, Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob and Culture Minister Grace Fu to conduct the campaign for the by-election in a dignified manner.
She said:
“We are a group of Singaporeans who have been following the progress of the Bukit Batok by-election. We would like to categorically state that we do not condone the personal attacks and character assassinations made by the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob, and Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu against Dr Chee Soon Juan of the SDP.
We are deeply saddened in the manner in which the campaign is run – having deteriorated to the level that undermines our Singaporean values. We should re-assess…if people who have been entrusted with power and leadership should perpetuate such unbecoming behaviour.
We want an election campaign which addresses the pertinent issues of Singaporeans, rather than one which is marred by, primarily by the vilification of any one person.
This letter is signed by 30 people…people from all walks of life who simply want a fair election campaign.”
