PAP Manifesto.

Woo, PAP has finally release its manifesto liao!! Since they whacked WP’s Manifesto until so jialat, I wanted to see what is PAP proposing for the future of Singapore.

When I finally read the manifesto, I feel so fucking under-whelmed.

Nabeh, the manifesto is sibey vague loh.

The manifesto is full of general statements and sorely lacks measurable proposals. And they took nearly "2 years and more than 800 people" to write this?!?

Just see the healthcare part can liao:

Provide affordable health care for all

WE WILL ensure that Singaporeans can afford quality health-care services.

To do this, we will:

# Make hospitals more efficient so they can keep charges affordable;

(Can define what is "affordable" or not? keep cost increase within the next 5 years to how many %?)

# Improve MediShield, Medisave and ElderShield to help Singaporeans afford medical care;

(Can define what is "improve" or not? Lower premium and better coverage for medishield and eldershield? How much lower? How much better? Medisave can be use for treatment of chronic illness? Can give a list and amt tat can be used?)

# Continue to subsidise lower-income Singaporeans who fall sick;

(Can say how much? 10% is subsidise 90% is also subsidise leh.)

# Double Medifund to $2 billion to provide additional help for the needy;

(By when? Who will qualify for it?)

# Build a new general hospital in Yishun; and

(when? maybe got say b4 but can say again wat.)

# Help Singaporeans lead active lifestyles and stay healthy.

(This we know, but as I said b4 they always can say again.)

With all these super vague statements how are we going to hold the ruling party accountable to their election promises?

I strongly believe that election promises must be measurable; this is because they are the KPIs of the next govt and we are going to judge the performance of the next govt according to how it had fare in fulfilling their election promises.
