Secretary-General of the People’s Power Party Goh Meng Seng has gotten in to the debate with Chief of political party People’s Voice Lim Tean, issuing a “live telecast public policy debate” to the incumbent ministers in Singapore.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, November 29, Mr Goh referenced the challenge that Mr Lim issued, and called for the ministers to accept a challenge of his own.

Prior to this, on Friday, September 7, Mr Lim said, “Wouldn’t a live televised debate to get to the bottom of this issue be a good idea? Clearing the issue and defining our status as owners or tenants once and for all?” He challenged: “I suggest 4 ministers to debate with me, Lawrence Wong, Lee Hsien Loong, Indranee Raja and Kwah Boon Wan.”

Following this, Mr Lim re-issued his challenge once again on Monday, November 26 saying “I have repeatedly challenged the PAP leaders to a debate on the HDB issue which most Singaporeans are unhappy with. They have not accepted my challenge. I am renewing my call for a debate and this time”. He added that he would like to speak publicly on the issues of Housing Development Board (HDB) flat leases, Central Provident Fund (CPF) money and ministerial salaries.

Mr Lim also said that the incumbents should “should relish a debate and not duck a challenge”.


In his Facebook post, Mr Goh wrote about the challenges he previously issued, “During GE2011, I had challenged PAP Minister Mah Boh Tan publicly for THREE TIMES to a public live telecast debate on HDB issues”.

He then added, “I will put the challenge back to [the incumbent ministers]”.

“If they want to know what policy ideas or options or “solutions ” I have, ask the respective Ministers to accept a live telecast public policy debate!” Mr Goh said.
