The ruling party-affiliated People’s Association (PA) is conducting an open corruption campaign enticing Singaporeans and foreigners who are permanent residents to join the PA for benefits. The benefits include priority placings in primary schools and special parking discounts from HDB. PA printed the benefits on door-knob flyers, leaving them on the doors of the residents.
The photo was taken by opposition MP Gerrad Giam during his house visits went viral on Facebook today (Mar 17).
PA volunteers are normally gathered to support government events and attend election rallies of the ruling party. Some higher-ranked volunteers (with higher fringe benefits) engage in under-handed political attack against government critics online.
