According to a poll conducted over two weeks, most Singaporeans believe Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is a dictator for having too much power and control over the corruption bureau, election department and the national reserves.
1,182 out of 1,359, or 87%, polled acknowledge that Lee Hsien Loong is a dictator who abuses his powers in the Parliament. Another 1,239 out of 1,354, or 91.5%, called for PM Lee Hsien Loong to retire.
PM Lee Hsien Loong has repeatedly abused his powers and influence over the country’s judiciary to win in defamation lawsuits. The recent lawsuit awarded him S$150,000 in compensation, bankrupting a CPF analyst and forcing the critic to leave Singapore for Taiwan.
The corrupted Prime Minister also abused the Parliament’s powers to rule himself innocent recently, when his sibling presented evidence of him abusing power to defy a legal-binding will left by his father Lee Kuan Yew.
PM Lee Hsien Loong’s performance has been under scrutiny recently due to his attacks on China resulting an invitation ban to an international trade summit, One Belt One Road, by the world’s second superpower. The PM is also criticised by existing PAP old guards like Professor Kishore Mahbubani, who slammed the PM for not exercising discreet when handling the South China Seas territorial dispute.
Just today, the GIC reported an undisclosed multi-billion loss for FY2016/2017, where Lee Hsien Loong sits as the Chairman. The corrupted Prime Minister’s wife, Ho Ching, sits as the CEO of Temasek Holdings, and the powerful corrupted couple held the CPF and national reserves by ransom through Lee Hsien Loong’s unprecedented powers in Parliament and the Judiciary.
