Focus on issues that matter to Singaporeans

As the various political parties and candidates prepare for their election campaigns, I hope they will focus on issues which are close to the hearts of Singaporeans.

For example, Singaporeans are extremely worried about the rising cost of living, job opportunities, the affordability of public housing and the influx of foreigners who compete with them for jobs and a decent salary.

I hope the candidates will not engage in personal attacks on other candidates, but instead, raise quality issues and policies that they will champion if they are elected into Parliament.

I appeal to my fellow Singaporeans not to spoil their votes but to exercise their rights and responsibility by choosing the most qualified and suitable candidate.
