  3. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/blogs/singaporesc...-032434824.html The People's Action Party (PAP) is starting its search for new candidates to be fielded at the next General Election due by 2016. "One clear lesson which we have picked up from this and previous GEs is that we have to deploy our candidates as early as possible, and in a more challenging environment even earlier than before," said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. One clear lesson... is that we have to deploy our candidates as early as possible, and in a more challenging environment even earlier than before PM Lee Speaking at a thank-you dinner on Friday for MPs who retired after the May GE, he added this would allow candidates time to get to know residents, learn the ropes, understand what being a PAP MP means and discover their strengths and weakness, reported The Straits Times. The PAP usually begins its search for about 20 new candidates a year or so after the last GE. PM Lee said the party is looking out for candidates who "fit the standard mould", people who "break the mould but make a special contribution to the team", and people with a "proven dedication and skills in working the ground and reaching out to residents". And while the new team might come from diverse backgrounds, the should be cohesive and work as a team, he said. "I urge Singaporeans who have the passion to serve Singapore, and believe they have a contribution to make, to come forward and join us." PM Lee also reminded current MPs that getting elected is "only the first step". New MPs will have to "cultivate the ground pick up from where their predecessors left off, build up the support and loyalty that comes only from hard work and patient service." They will also have to "work closely with the ministers in Parliament and outside to improve our policies, explain them to the public, to realise our goals for Singapore", he was quoted by the paper as saying. To meet the needs of a new electorate, they will need to consult and engage more to co-create solutions and build shared ownership, he added. Former PAP chairman Lim Boon Heng also noted the new phase of Singapore's politics with the PAP's unprecedented loss of six seats to the opposition. The PAP must be more closely knit, he stated. "Our future depends on how our party and the Workers Party perform. What posture will each take? Will we have constructive politics, or negative politics?" he asked. The paper quoted him as saying, "If negative politics prevail, and our younger leaders become reluctant to introduce right but unpopular policies, we will lose a strength of the past - that of being able to look long-term, to shape our future." A total of 22 PAP MPs, who retired at the recent polls, were honoured. They include Mrs Yu-Foo Yee Shoon and Professor Koo Tsai Kee. PM Lee also paid tribute to two PAP MPs, Dr Ong Chit Chung and Dr Balaji Sadasivan, who died during the previous electoral term, and thanked Hougang grassroots advisor Eric Low too, saying he had a difficult role in winning over residents in an opposition ward.

  5. Stand for election? 'Ensure male candidates do NS first' By Teh Joo Lin & Cheryl Lim WORKERS' Party (WP) secretary-general Low Thia Khiang yesterday proposed amending the Constitution to ensure that all male election candidates must have done national service (NS). He said it did not feel right for male MPs to represent the people unless they have gone through that rite of passage. Mr Low did not name names, but his point was clearly aimed at People's Action Party (PAP) new face Janil Puthucheary, 38, who became a citizen in 2008 and has not gone through NS. Rejecting those without NS stints would only be fair to everyone who has been through it, he said, including himself and his Aljunied GRC teammate Chen Show Mao. Taiwan-born Mr Chen, a top corporate lawyer, did his NS before taking up citizenship in 1986. Mr Low said the PAP should not field a candidate 'who just became a new citizen without serving national service'. He pointed to the tough stance that the Government takes against Singaporean males who default on their NS obligations, and referred to statements by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who is also Defence Minister, on the subject. Mr Low pointed out that Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing, an MP-elect for Tanjong Pagar GRC, took a different line when asked about PAP candidates who had not done NS. He quoted MG Chan as having said that someone who was not a citizen previously might not have done NS, but the more important question was what he could contribute to Singapore. Mr Low asked: 'How can a former Chief of Army publicly state something contradictory to the Minister for Defence?' Mr Chen, who also spoke at the WP rally last night, called for a more calibrated approach to immigration, in response to Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang's comments that capping the size of the foreign workforce presented a 'real dilemma' for the Government as it would likely mean turning away big-money investments from abroad. Mr Lim had said on Sunday: 'We will keep foreign workers to one-third of the workforce, but I can tell you that one-third is a very severe limitation to us.' Mr Chen said: 'Do you know why it's one-third? I don't know. Shouldn't we send someone to Parliament to ask them?' He pointed out that the WP was not anti-immigration, but foreigners had to contribute to Singapore, instead of depressing the pay of locals. Mr Chen added: 'The test of our progress as a nation is not whether we have more for those who already have much, but whether we provide enough for those who have less.'
