Singapore โ€” Progress Singapore Party’s (PSP) Francis Yuen has expressed concern over whether there is any contingency planning at the highest levels of Government.

The PSP secretary-general was moved to raise the question following Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat’s decision to step aside as leader of the ruling People’s Action Party’s fourth-generation (4G) team, creating uncertainty over who will be the next Prime Minister.

In a Facebook post, Mr Yuen wrote: “The latest development following DPM Hengโ€™s announcement of his stepping aside as leader of the 4G (fourth generation) raises the question of whether there was any contingency planning in such an important matter that affects not only the ruling party but also the confidence of Singaporeans and the international community in our country. The need for more time to sort things out can only suggest that the ruling party lacks a workable contingency plan that can be implemented quickly.”

An organisation to be successful needs a backup plan in areas which affect its performance, he said. “Whether it is mounting a major marketing initiative or developing a new product or mapping out a succession plan, the ‘what-if’ questions must be addressed.” he wrote.

Mr Yuen stressed the importance of scenario planning, which helps to mitigate situations that can catch us off-guard. “What-if” thinking is important for political parties, he added.

“This is an important lesson for us and a strong reminder that a good plan must have backup options. The Progress Singapore Party (PSP) is entering a consolidation phase in its development. Embracing a ‘what-if’ mentality as part of our DNA is crucial to building a strong party,” he said.
