Elected MPs in S’pore happiest in the world: Survey

Posted on 17 May 2017

Well-paid and job security among top reasons.


A new survey on wellness and employment has found that elected members of parliament in Singapore are among the happiest in the world.

This after the survey found that MPs here are happy due to several factors, namely having a job that pays well, short hours and a strong sense of job security.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are having the exact opposite type of jobs, said they are envious.

One Singaporean, Chi Chu, said: “Having a job that pays well is something that all Singaporeans should have and not just confined to a small group of individuals.”

“I hope MPs in Singapore can look into this disparity with how they live and how the rest of the country lives.”

However, the survey also found that out of the present 89 elected MPs, six of them are not as happy or as satisfied.

This is so as the other 83 form the super majority as they come from one political party in Singapore.

Another local, Jin Koh Lian, said: “The six MPs not from the majority have to fight tooth and nail to keep their jobs and deserve the remuneration they receive.”

“The rest have it relatively easy in comparison.”

“If the other 83 MPs fought just as hard, they would deserve a pay raise.”
