Well, this year's local election is very interesting, and since most of us here are expats, and cannot vote. I have started a poll that will last for 3 days, for the fun of it. Take note that your votes will not affect the results of the real elections, whose results will be out after polling is closed on the 7th May 2011, this Saturday. your votes are secret :D

Should be a kind of lop-sided poll I would think. Seeing how this is an Expat website and all the opposition member want to curtail foreigners even more! Even PMETs. Kind of silly if you ask me. :lol:

Well you say that but I would vote for any of the opposition parties, the one that stood the best chance in the constituency I'm in at the time. Only for the purposes of shaking things up a bit, getting the message through to PAP that they need to do more and get better connected to what's going on around them.

I've not followed much of what's going on, admittedly, because I find their skills at 'debating' sorely lacking and very weak but a little revolution now and again works wonders.

How many years would you like the baby to remain one?

You need to make the poll compulsory to simulate the real elections.

Yah oso need unique id of each vote with result given to Uncle H ah?

Seriously though. I'd vote opposition, as I think the PAP need the arrogance and presumption knocked out of them. That said, not currently in-country I don't know enough about the nuances between the various Opp parties to pick one and vote above.

I would have voted PAP, its the nearest you will get to conservatism and business development, the rest haven't a clue and have only made money out of following PAP.

Also the opposition is not real opposition, real opposition isn't allowed to play is it :)

I guess I reflect my own self, in my statement, as my faith in politicians has long been, shattered. Though I'm with SMS on this one, better the devil you know, than the one you don't when it comes to producing results and the PAP have done remarkably well over the years...

Besides it's more a manipulative game than any real opposition right, with everyone being hand picked and vetted until the cows come home!
