PM Lee releases teaser for Sunday's National Day Rally speech - education, housing and families will feature

SINGAPORE - The National Day Rally speech on Sunday will likely feature policies on issues like housing, education and families, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who also hinted that there there might be some musical entertainment.

PM Lee posted a minute-long video on his Facebook page on Friday night, giving Singaporeans a preview of what will take place on Sunday.

In the video, he says: "This National Day Rally, I'll be looking back at the achievements of our last 50 years and also the challenges we face looking ahead - looking at ourselves in Singapore and also looking outwards.


"I'll be talking some of the things we want to do together in education and housing, and of course, also in families and babies."

PM Lee ended it by saying: " I won't be singing this year but someone else will."

This year's speech is among the most highly-anticipated, not just because it takes place during Singapore's Golden Jubilee year but also because many will be looking out for clues about when the general election will take place.

The prime minister will speak in Mandarin, Malay and English, starting from 6.45pm on Sunday, Aug 23. His English speech will begin at 8pm.
