    • PM Lee: No by-election if PAP loses a GRC
      <!-- by line -->By Rachel Chang
      Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said, 'The voters have decided, and we will accept the voters' decision.' -- ST PHOTO: FRANCIS ONG PG

      <!-- <div class="gap15"></div> -->

       

      IF A GRC is lost at the May 7 General Election - and a Minister along with it - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong does not plan to call a by-election to try and get him elected and back into government, he told the Lianhe Zaobao Chinese daily.

      'Elections are a serious thing,' he said in an interview published on Tuesday 'The voters have decided, and we will accept the voters' decision.'

      He added that voters, too, would have to live with the consequences of their choice to turf a Minister out.

      'There are no safety nets in real life. So it's best not to take the risk.'

    • They were the ones who came up with GRC system to allow weak characters into parliament.

      They must reap what they sow.

    • lol....why is this issue even an issue? You mean they've considered by-elections as a last resort? Then it's a bloody joke.

    • Why not? He's the prime minister right? Or  you prefer our president to say it instead?

    • He is pretty confident that one of his ministers may be ousted.

      What happened if he himself is being voted out ?

      I just read this another way and thought of Lee opening up the IR to us without $100 fine to win votes.

      Meaning that all ministers must be allocated to some grc or smc and be contested?

      Or certain ministers will not get involved with GE? Like Foreign minister?
