Tan Cheng Bock forms a new political party - Progress Singapore Party.

 

 

Returning to Politics 

I have decided to return to politics after a long absence.

Two days ago on the 16th of January 2019, twelve likeminded Singaporeans (including some ex PAP cadres and myself) filed an application to the Registry of Societies to register a new political party. This will be called the Progress Singapore Party. 

Over the years, a group of us have been walking the ground, meeting many Singaporeans from all walks of life. In my conversations with them, I listened to their concerns, heard their fears and felt their pain. I felt a sense of duty to come forward and represent them in Parliament. So I decided to form a political party to add another voice in Parliament. 

The decision to go on our own was not an easy one. I, together with my team, studied the many options offered, like joining an existing opposition party, taking over an existing opposition party, running as an independent and so on. I want to thank all those who made such generous offers. I considered them all seriously and it was a difficult decision, but I feel it is the right one.

Though we are setting up a new party, we still look forward to working with others in the opposition who are passionate about putting country first – before either party or self.

At 78 years, I have a short window that I intend to use mentoring and developing future Parliamentarians who will work for the good of our nation. We want to build a compassionate and truly democratic Singapore where good values and people matter. Freedom of choice and free speech without fear must be defended.

We hope to be given the opportunity for Progress Singapore Party to be an alternative voice in parliament. In due course, as the party and candidates mature, we intend to be ready to govern the nation. In the mean time, we will work with those who share our political beliefs of country first – before either party or self.

We are awaiting approval from the Registry of Societies and will hold a press conference thereafter.

重回政坛

告别了一段时间,我已决定重新回到政坛。

两天前(1月16日)有12位理念相近的新加坡人,(包括几位前人民行动党干部再加上我自己)已向新加坡的社团注册局提出申请注册一个新的政党。新政党的名字是新加坡前进党。

过去的一年,我们一组人都有在社区活动,与不同层次的国人见面。交谈中我聆听了国人的心声,大家的忧虑与难言之隐,我感觉到自己有责任在国会中再次代表他们,而且必须成立政党才能在国会中为民请愿。

这条道路不会是一帆风顺的。我研究了各种方案,如加入其他政党,或是接管一个已经存在的政党,甚至当一名独立人士。在这里我要感谢向我提出建议的朋友们,我经过慎重考虑,决定了,成立新政党是正确的。

在成立新政党后,我们乐意与把国家优先,大于党及个人,理念相近的反对党一起合作。

我已78岁了,只有很短的时间去培养有心从政,为国为民的未来国会议员。我们要维护一个真民主,正确价值观,以民为本的新加坡,而且必须保持自由选择及无畏发言的精神。

我们希望大家能给将成立的新加坡前进党一个机会,成为国会里的新声音。向前看,新政党及团队成熟后,要成为替代政府的机会是可能的。目前的首要任务是要与国家优先,大于党及个人,理念相近的各路人马共同携手合作。

我们目前在等待社团注册局的批准,一旦收到批文,马上会举行记者招待会。

PSP inside NS battalion HQ is the downgraded personnel who are downgraded and have no official tasking in the Bn.

Something support platoon.

 

So essentially they are zuo bo lan folks that are tasked to do some sai gang like be road marshals during IPPT or what, otherwise they will just be rotting away during the ICT  [laugh]

They will delay the approval of PSP while bringing the elections forward. If they went to extremes to deny TCB  from becoming President, never rule out what they might do now to stop him from taking part in GE, especially if they sense that the new party can make some serious headway.

Today's PAP is not the same as yesterday's whiter than white PAP.

Supposed to have some ex-PAP MPs other than TCB.

2 things to look out for:

 

- Who are these ex-PAP members? If include heavy weigh like GY, higher chances of gaining attention and wining more votes. If just some party member or MP, then have to be careful about "black mouthing" from you know who...

 

- Working with other opposition. This is the tricky part. With small or non-active parties, as good as nothing. If join force with say SDP , NSP or WP (just saying), will it add "strength" to PSP, or the historical records of the alliance parties pull PSP down (e.g. WP still have ongoing case over TC management, SDP affected by images of CSJ, etc.)

Already many people buey song that MIW shifting goalpost to allow Malays only for the last PE. If they try to shift goalposts again for the next election to deny TCB again. I wonder what will happen.
