Lee Hsien Loong wins Best Prime Minister In S’pore For November 2016 award

Posted on 01 December 2016

He has been winning award consistently every month since December 2004 when he first became PM.


Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has won the monthly Best Prime Minister In Singapore For November 2016 award.

This after he was voted as the best prime minister in Singapore this month, having won in all months in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 so far.

This November 2016 win marks his 144th monthly award.

He has been winning the award every month since 2004, when he first took office in December that year. Within a month of first becoming prime minister, he took home the award and has been doing so every month since then.

One Singaporean, Guan Jun, said: “This award is similar to the annual journalism award event Mediacorp hosts, where Mediacorp wins big.”

“It is also similar to how The Straits Times celebrates the Nielsen media survey that reveals it is still the most-read English newspaper each year.”

“Being able to compete with yourself every year and coming out tops credibly is always not easy.”

Other locals said they must not be too quick to dismiss such awards as they serve an important purpose.

Shenre Kuaile, another local, said: “We can just mentally substitute ‘Best’ and ‘Most-read’ with ‘Happy Anniversary’.”

“Basically, it is a reminder that another month has past and it is anniversary time again.”

“We shall see next month who wins again.”
