'Foolish mistake' to think PAP will suffer the same fate as Malaysia's former government : Ho Kwon Ping

However, he warned of the possibility that the PAP might no longer be in power in the future, though this might only happen in the next 20 to 30 years.

Singapore is still helmed largely by its second generation of leaders, said Ho, with the memories of its founding fathers and principles of former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew, still “clearly remembered and largely perpetuated” by current leaders.


“The Asian political culture has shown, that it is not the presence of democratic institutions, but it is the presence of good governance which is most critical,” said Ho, who was a journalist before becoming a hotelier.

There’s a high degree of tolerance within Asian countries for even incompetence. But there is very little intolerance for totally selfish regimes which only perpetuate their own well-being.”

Singapore does not tolerate corruption, but that could change if the PAP allows nepotism and cronyism to set in, said Ho.

The PAP has to be careful not to create “quasi cronyism amongst cliques of elites” as it draws people from immediate circles of friends, the military or administrative service, he said.

He added: “There must be an inflow of totally fresh new blood into the political system if we are to avoid the futures that we do not wish to have.”

Complacency, such as the party applying the “same old formulas” to solve future problems, as well as the lack of internal competition within the party, could also be detrimental to the PAP, said Ho.

While he acknowledged that having factions within the party “is not necessarily bad” as it induces some competition, it should not reach a point where there is a huge split within the party as that could spell disaster — a fate suffered by Malaysia’s BN that resulted in its loss.

Singapore’s political leadership is aware that the “jibes made against us and our political system” by the Malaysians “may not be applicable in totality”, said Ho, but it knows there are still some lessons to be learnt.

Those are, he added, “the lessons about hubris, the lessons about keeping close touch with the population, the lessons about keeping scrupulously clean and avoiding any possibility of corruption to infect the political system”. — TODAY
Agree with most, except in bold above.

The only reason why PAP will not suffer the same fate is 70% of sinkies are daft and ball less lah.

But it's ok, I'm happy to have PAP anyway.

I sleep very well every night.

The bumi policies will NEVER go away no matter what party you vote in; only a moron would think otherwise.

Voting PH is giving the non Malays a louder voice in Parliament, however, and that is as good as one could hope for.

Allow me to ask you something. In the event the army is really mobilized in order suppress riot crowds for whatsoever reason against sinkies, what do you think the majority of the army will be doing when the order is given to shoot dissenters?
