S’poreans suspect next General Election planned for 2015

Posted on 22 August 2013

Channel News Asia gets $13 million to make feel good documentaries to celebrate Singapore’s 50th anniversary.


Singaporeans from all walks of life are suspecting that the next general election will be held in 2015.

This after Channel News Asia unveiled ambitious plans to develop iconic Singapore-made documentaries to celebrate the Singapore story as 2015 will be Singapore’s 50th birthday.

The channel will commission, produce and outsource over 30 hours of documentaries with the support of the Media Development Authority with a budget of $13 million.

Qu Tou Piao, a local said: “Come 2015, people will be in good mood because it is half a century of existence. The Channel News Asia documentaries will remind Singaporeans who made Singapore and there is expected to be a free flow of good will from the electorate.”

These plans were announced at the Old Parliament House on Wednesday.

Channel News Asia’s managing director, Debra Soon, said these documentaries could be one-off one-hour titles, or in a series which celebrate the Singapore spirit.

This has sparked intense interest in who will be featured in the documentaries.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “If they put me on TV to make me famous, I will do the right thing and ask people to vote correctly. Call me ok, Debra Soon?”

    It won’t make a difference whether its 2015 or 2016, as soon as PAP lost 2 By-election in a row, they rolled out 6.9 Million population white paper & bulldozed it in 2 weeks of parliament… more than enough New Citizen PAP votes to cancel out Opposition votes.
