Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam said the risk of foreign entities attempting to meddle with domestic politics in Singapore is “pretty substantial”.

This is so as with new political agendas emerging and tools such as social media readily available, any party can exert influence on a sizeable number quickly.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “If only Singaporeans can make as much headway influencing local politics as foreigners.”
Gao Zhen Zhi, 43-year-old town council administrative assistant

 

sian-half-uncle “One moment Singapore is so small the world doesn’t care about us, the next moment our local politics is worth influencing.”
Puah Tang Sai, 64-year-old toilet seat manufacturer

 

happy-bird-girl “Another news topic to report on: ‘Risk of local entities meddling in local politics ‘not substantial at all’.”
Hao Seow, 19-year-old coin sorter
