Hougang by-election : time to reflect on respectable online activities

Come May 26 the voters of HG will decide who should be their MP.

The 2 potential main candidates are likely to be from PAP and WP. Both are deemed to be hardworking and dedicated public figures and will probably do their best for HG and for the country. As they prepare their respective campaigns to woo the voters of HG, there will be much fanfare and excitement.

I believe both would like the contest to be fought in honorable “gentle man” manner, with each striving to sell their respective cases on own merits.

Would the Singapore public, especially the online activists allow this to happen?

Though it may be viewed as wishful thinking, i believe if we try hard enough through our proactiveness, those wishing to resort to unsavory attacked and slanderous ways can be neutralized.

Whichever side of the political divide you may be from, its about time we stand-up against folks who are out there to instigate and stir negative emotions against their opponents, rather than champion their causes based on merit of their candidates.

I sincerely hope both main contending candidates can endorse this positive theme publicly.

****************************************************************************

This is an election to improve the lives of the residents of Hougang. It has nothing to do with national issues some jokers ( mostly in PM Lee and some in Mr Desmond Choo’ Facebook)  are talking about.

  • Will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat solve SMRT train problem? No.
  • Will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat solve Foreigners problem? No.
  • Will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat solve Education problem? No.
  • Will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat solve HDB pricing problem? No.
  • Will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat solve Inflation problem? No.
  • But will voting in Desmond Choo or Png Eng Huat help solve some of the problems faced by Hougang residents? Yes. I think so. At least I believe they will try their best.

So residents of Hougang: Vote for the one who will help you solve your problem.

Issues pertaining to SMRT, Foreigners, Education, HDB, Inflation etc cannot be solved by a single MP. Not Desmond Choo. Not Png Eng Huat. These issues can only be solved by the government, with the help of Singaporeans.

So please don’t listen to noises created by those confused people. It is for the residents of Hougang to elect the person who can help them. May the better person win.
