The results for the General Elections for Singapore are out, and living in the Aljunied area means that I’m now officially under the Worker’s Party. I had guessed it’d be like that, sharing George Yeo’s sentiment that this was a tide that they’d be unable to stop.
Whether or not this result will turn out to be positive is anyone’s guess, but I’m thinking it’s going to be similar to what Obama’s administration has done for the US: raise expectations (to — let’s face it, being human — an irrationally unreasonable level) and then fail to deliver on some while delivering on others, but in general just creating a basket of mixed feelings.
Whatever happens, you just can’t deny that this is an exciting time to be a Singaporean (and especially someone staying in Aljunied).
Oh, and with Potong Pasir being won by the PAP (after being controlled by Chiam’s team for a bit), I think it’s fair to say that it’s a pretty exciting time to be staying in Potong Pasir as well. At least for a while, the predictable Singapore life will be open to fantasy.
