Dictator Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong published on state media, ChannelNewsAsia (CNA), praising his single ruling party Parliament for having “high” quality debate. State media CNA covered the dictator’s Facebook post praising the Prime Minister and his nominated MPs (NMPs) for a good job done.
Below is the Facebook post by Lee Hsien Loong:
“By international standards, our Parliament is less dramatic than some others, but the quality of our debate is high.”
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also poured praises for his NMPs appointed by himself:
“These three NMPs exemplify the purpose of the Nominated MP scheme. They are not in politics, and would not otherwise have had a voice in Parliament. But they have brought their expertise and experience to bear, and enriched the public discourse.”
The dictator ended his post saying that the whole world should have a democracy like his:
“This is how Parliamentary democracy is supposed to work. Sometimes we fall short of this ideal, but in the case of these four speeches, we have not done badly. ”
