S’poreans welcome Vivian Balakrishnan as new Transport Minister

Posted on 12 September 2015

This is to congratulate him on his excellent win this GE2015.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who suddenly found themselves covered in white have come out to welcome Holland-Bukit Timah GRC candidate Vivian Balakrishnan into his new role as Transport Minister.

This after his team won in the General Election 2015 with 66 percent of votes against the Singapore Democratic Party. The national average is 69.9 percent.

One Singaporean, Chuan Bai Yee, said he thinks Vivian fits the role of Transport Minister very well given his popularity: “It is a good idea to pair the job scope according to the popularity of the PAP politician.”

“As you can tell, the transport ministry would suit Vivian Balakrishnan very well.”

Other Singaporeans who were quick to come out to congratulate him on his win, said the role would be for the best interests of Singaporeans.

Jin Jiao Au, another local, said: “It is an honour for him to serve in the transport ministry as he is in politics for the long term.”

“Long term meaning about five years, since it has been said that a day in politics is a long time.”

“Five years would then be a long enough time.”

At press time, competitors for the Transport Minister role include Yaacob Ibrahim, Lim Swee Say and Khaw Boon Wan.
