Hundreds of Singaporeans have been urging founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s younger son, Lee Hsien Yang, to join the opposition and defeat the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) at the next General Election.

Calls for Lee Hsien Yang to go against his elder brother, current Hsien Loong, at the polls first emerged during the explosive Oxley Road dispute in 2017.

A page called Lee Hsien Yang – Join the Opposition, Defeat the PAP has also been gaining traction online.

The page was created on June 14 2017, the day Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling issued a public statement of no confidence in PM Lee, registering concern for Singapore’s future.

The page continued following the events of the Oxley dispute until 27 June 2017, when the feud seemed to subside. On 4 Nov 2018, the page became active once again when Lee Hsien Yang met Dr Tan Cheng Bock.

The page has been active over the past few days, with the latest AGC complaint against Lee’s wife, Suet Fern. The page has also been posting heartfelt testimonies about Lee Hsien Yang by ordinary Singaporeans. Read the impressions of many Singaporeans who have met Lee here:
