In a Facebook post on Tuesday (April 14), opposition politician Yee Jenn Jong questioned why the ruling People’s Action Party has just officially stated that all ground activities are halted.

The Workers’ Party politician and former Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) wrote: “You mean after all these many days of shutdowns, stay home measures, constant advertisements to ask people to stay home, fines for companies and individuals, even cancelling of foreign workers’ work permits for breaching safe distancing, the ruling party has just officially stated that all ground activities are halted?”

He said that this is why no General Election “should even be considered at this critical time. We should not even rush a Bill to provide for GE during a pandemic”.

Mr Yee wrote: “There is enough time to pass such a Bill later or maybe the health threat may come down significantly next year to have a regular GE.”
