What a waste, they said.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like it when people who make mistakes admit their error, said they are feeling upset that the Singapore Democratic Party has beaten the People’s Action Party to the lunchtime rally slot at the promenade area beside UOB Plaza near Boat Quay on Monday, Sept. 7, from noon to 2pm.

This after many voters said they had taken leave specially to attend the rally, while many others had planned to skip lunch as they had personally wanted to listen to Lee Hsien Loong say sorry.

One disappointed voter, Zhen Shi Wang, said: “When I saw Lee Hsien Loong say sorry back in GE2011 and admit that his party had made errors, I felt very happy, first as a Singaporean, then as a voter.”

“Even more so when I eventually voted for the Workers’ Party instead.”

However, not all Singaporeans are looking forward to the apology alone.

Other Singaporeans said witnessing PAP politicians admit to the electorate that they had not done as well as expected and then pleading with voters to be given another chance at political office will always be a sight to behold.

Another local, Qu Tou Piao, said: “I’m so not used to all these attention that PAP politicians are showering on me as a voter this past GE2015 week, especially when I’ve been neglected by them the last four years.”

“But I feel empowered seeing political leaders grovel for votes.”

“It’s all very cathartic.”

At press time, other voters are betting on which PAP candidates will be crying during rallies.

Singaporeans will be upset if the prime minister doesn’t apologise again.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are part of the politically-active citizenry, have come out to say that they cannot wait for General Election 2015 to kick off.

This after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong revealed in parliament on July 13, 2015, that the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee (EBRC), comprised of civil servants, was secretly formed two months ago, signalling that the GE will be starting very soon as gerrymandering is being carried out.

One Singaporean, Gao Zhen Zhi, said PM Lee’s reluctance to admit publicly that the EDRC had already been formed is understandable, as no one would want to highlight the fact that he would be apologising publicly very soon: “If I was PM Lee I would also not want to draw attention to it as election starting again means he will probably need to apologise for mistakes made the last four years.”

“So I am looking forward to this GE2015 as it is a good time to see PM Lee say sorry again during his lunchtime rally at Boat Quay next to UOB Plaza.”

“If he doesn’t apologise, Singaporeans would feel like something is amiss, as this must be a staple every election from GE2011 onward.”

Other Singaporeans said witnessing PAP politicians admit to the electorate that they had not done as well as expected and then pleading with voters to be given another chance at political office will always be a sight to behold.

Another local, Qu Tou Piao, said: “I enjoy seeing rallies where the PAP leaders address a crowd of a few hundred people. It is so demoralisng for them as they have always believed they are high and mighty and given some strong mandate to rule.”

“What’s more, I feel empowered seeing political leaders grovel for votes.”

“It’s all very cathartic.”

At press time, other voters are betting that other cabinet ministers would also be apologising publicly during the upcoming rallies.
