      Mr Low also rebutted Education Minister Ng Eng Hen, who said having opposition MPs would weaken government.

      "If Dr Ng is engaging or employing the same old tactic of the PAP in the early days, it could well threaten that there will be freak election result, since more than 50 per cent of the seats are contested. That would be his election strategy," said Mr Low.

      He continued: "If this is the assumption, then why hold elections? Then we might as well have all the PAP MPs... I suppose it's typical PAP. They want some voices, noises in Parliament, but they do not want representation from the people."

      That's why, in his view, the government expanded the system of Non-Constituency MPs.



      We are not daft and stupid as MM said. We are matured citizens who know how to vote. We don't need a Education minister to tell us which parties we should not vote for.

    • Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

    • If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.
