SINGAPORE: Political observers had eyes on Heng Swee Keat's Budget speech on Monday (February 18) for one key indicator: At least with strategic leaflets, it would be the election of elections this year.
There were two final publications: The £ 8 billion worth of Generation Merdeka's Package, and the $ 1.1 billion Annual Year Bonus. The jury still finds out whether it was brought together, both giving a definitive mark.
There is also a query about a & # 39; a long $ 15 billion surplus that is expected to generate this term of the government by the end of FY2019.
Can these elections make a mark later – in 2020 – how are some suggested? This is the potential impact that the surplus could be spent on leaflets next year.
In this regard, Mr Heng said: "It's not about us, we're close to the election so we can spend it, let's spend it & # 39; … (and) it is not & # 39 ; meaning that next year (2020), we'll cost $ 15 billion. "
He can not be said to be very different.
At the end, in telling what to do; A general election may be cited on a year or next year, ahead of the crucial date of April 2021, which could focus on its # 39; Budget to be myopic.
The more appropriate locations could be found instead of analyzing the political requirements of the Public Action Party (PAP).
In this regard, it is likely that the PAP will use 2019 a year for confirmation, rather than for a year in which it is; seeking a new mandate.
A & # 39; HENG SWEE KEAT CEANNAS INCLUDED
Mr Heng was only a post of first secretary general of the PAP in November 2018, with that flag, the foreseeable prime minister.
In those months, small steps have been taken to include the fact that it is a bit grow larger than the larger responsibilities.
On December 31, 2018, Mr Heng traveled with DPM Teo Chee Hean to Putrajaya as President of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, to give a message to Prime Minister Malayach Mahathir Mohamad. It was an important indicator, in particular because their meeting was encouraging foreign ministers from both sides to meet the. Ultimately the next week for speeches about breeding two-dimensional issues.
In his home, in response to the elaboration of the Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao, Mr Heng responded to the Government, to see what the Government called on to move softly and slowly.
It is clear that Mr Heng has begun an accelerated move. This is just a first instance, and still more time is needed.
With recent programs such as the great breach of cybersecurity at SingHealth, continuing with the data that is available. from the Singapore HIV Register and as a result of deaths related to training in the Armed Forces of Singapore, Mr Heng and his team of a fourth generation (4G) still have a lot to address and the right position before calling accounts.
Indeed, as well as the public who is in a position; look at Mr Heng to lead and influence the recent lapses, the next Prime Minister will also have a benefit from getting so much of your device; time to work with, shape and mark the team that it will take over once and that PM Lee will have a long time. go down.
As it is, all eyes have been restored to Chaibineit in April. Only then the Government will hold the long term, with the expectation that Mr Heng has risen to Deputy First Minister, and the current Chef Hean and Tharman Shanmugaratnam DPMs allow younger leaders to go up over the next year. Chaibineat.
In particular since this will be the Cabinet for the future, it will be necessary for Mr Heng to work with Premier Lee's recycling, followed by a bedrock to enough for each minister in a new portfolio to build on his policy pups.
The aim is to make Mr Heng cross a team of stable ministers and have enough knowledge. In particular, if younger ministers are identified to capture key resources such as finance and transport, the rest of 2019 will be an important time for consolidation.
Some of the most important considerations for when the election of votes may, however, be to go to; going down to political movement tools.
Initially, ministers were involved in the retirement of three group constituencies (CRAs) from the Cabinet in the last re-cover – Mr Lim Swee Say (East Coast GRC), Mr Lim Hng Kiang (West Coast GRC) and Dr Yaacob Ibrahim (Jalan Besar GRC). Their roles must be completed as leaders in the Cranes.
Second, there are other gaps, for example in Marsiling-Yew Tee, where the senior representative PAP at Mdm Halimah Yaacob, when she retired to her & # 39 ; President. It seems that GRC Marine could be done by an acute minister, after Mr Tan Chuan-Jin was elected as Parliament Speaker.
Third, and potentially more important, the other GE will see more CRAs and more single-member constituencies (SMCs) to & # 39; fight. Not only does the PAP need to identify the signals of senior leaders to support smaller three-member GRCs, it is likely that SMCs need to see competitors to see more senior party leaders.
The current question is at least one; This PAP could be more time for young ministers to blood, and try new leaders in each constituency, as well as completing their recruitment and rehabilitation round now.
At the end, a & # 39; PAP how hard it is for hustings.
For now, for the pundits that the tea pages can read on when the GE is finally called, the strengthening of PPO leadership movement and selection calculations should be the degree Well, if it's not bigger than using the tools in the government purse.
Prime Minister Lee has said he wants to go down with the age of 70.
It is 2022 a year in which there is a question.
There is more than enough time for this 4G team to use 2019 to emphasize reinforcement.
