Disillusioned former youth leader of opposition switches support to PAP
Posted by temasektimes on July 6, 2012
A former youth leader of the opposition has expressed his disappointment with the Singapore opposition and switches support to the PAP!
26 year old Abdul Malik made the headlines in 2010 when he was arrested for posting critical comments about then Minister of Community Development, Youth and Sports Dr Vivian Balakrishnan on his Facebook.
Soon after his arrest, he joined the Singapore Democratic Party and attacked the PAP during its rally held at Hong Lim Park. He subsequently left the party and joined PKMS or the Singapore National Malay Organization.
In a series of comments posted on his Facebook lately, Abdul Malik asked what the opposition has done for Singapore during the last 20 years:
He added that he will vote for those who have proven that they can take care of him and his family.
Singapore has been governed by the ruling PAP since independence which holds 81 out of 87 seats in parliament with the remaining 6 seats being held by the Workers Party, considered by many as merely a ‘subsidiary’ party of the PAP rather than an ‘opposition’ party due to its pathetic performance in parliament so far.
