“No Ambiga, no unity government for me sorry. A government does not get anymore dangerous than one without an opposition sorry.
Our judiciary, national security, education and health departments, these are bodies that should be independent. Why aren’t they? So is our MACC. What we have now here are ministers so powerful, they could walk freely anywhere and do whatever they want by the wave of their name tags. Without the opposition, they’ll collate to break our bank. I’m serious. Like what happen during our last emergency. So, you must be kidding me by putting in a petition for change.
What you see in the US, UK, Korea, elsewhere in the world, is also not called a unity government. So is Singapore. There must always be a split in-between~ a fact checker who calls themselves the opposition, the backbencher, you name it.
In the US, they call themselves the democrats and the republicans. In the UK, the liberals and the conservatives. In the Middle East, the fundamental and the liberal Muslims. It’s still the ruling government and opposition in Singapore. No difference from ours.
When elections come by, the citizens is still forced to choose between either one.
What we need is not a unity government, but a serious law review, and a lifespan for every bill if you consider the latest spat involving the election of our Pm intolerable.
It’s a childish proposal. Not like I want to complain .”
