"It's a little after two PM in Singapore reverted to taking part in a snap. General election announced a little over a fortnight ago. The ruling People's Action Party has ruled since independence in. In one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty five, and it is expected to win big again. Even the leader of the country's only elected opposition party in parliament has warned of a wipeout that could see the sitting government win every seat. Well, let's hear now. From Monaco's Asia, editor James Chambers will. The election is due by next year. <hes> but everybody knew in Singapore that the government would call an election this year.

Because, they've guided Singapore to got to <hes> so well since independence so <hes> take you know it's not time to gamble now. <hes> you know stick with the party that you can depend on? was there any chance that people would take a gamble on anybody else other than the People's Action Party? The People's Action Party as you mentioned, has won every election since independence and we're talking about. Huge majorities. Of the the worst ever done, it was getting sixty percent of the votes. And last year last, sorry, last time around in two thousand fifteen. It got sixty nine percents. So the only question we we're all waiting to see the answer to is how big the wind will be this year <hes> the prime minister has been calling on, Singaporean say to give.

But there's there is a quirky quirky system in Singapore. So even if the opposition lost all seats, and they only hold six in the current parliament, even if they lose all their seats, they would then be given some. Because the. Doesn't want to have. Total control. It feels like it needs to have at least some opposition to hold in account in parliament. Otherwise it it ends up in the ridiculous, and this opposition seems to have gotten a little bit personal. Let me talk about this sort of the legacy and the. Family <hes> almost family firm that seems to be established. The way that Singapore runs its government, but the strange brother of the prime minister has actually but. Li Yang joined the opposition <hes> progress Singapore Party and has openly criticized the way that Lee. Long has handled the coronavirus pandemic also has said that there's a natural aristocracy inside the People's Action Party and it's not great when members of your family decide to. Wash your laundry and public. You're you're exactly right? Mrs Definitely in a case of airing your dirty laundry in public <hes> this this kind of family feud in Singapore's first family. The lease in this is this is all come about <hes> from after the death of their father I and how they they deal with his his bungalow. <hes> legally wanted it to be demolished <hes>, but it's still standing.

Party is fronting it and it's been supported by <hes> younger brother of the prime minister so very very embarrassing for the prime minister. But. It's not expected to have a major impact on the the number of votes that <hes> the prime minister and his party gets. It's not something that. You Singaporeans a used to seeing. But. One thing's for sure this isn't going to. This isn't going to bring about the end of of the PAP <hes> the the the one question I mentioned that we're all waiting to see just how big the majority is that they get finally <hes>.

Singapore GE2020: Global concerns, national elections

"One of the things we're gonna be covering is the Singapore elections coming up July 10th and for a closer look at what's happening and why it's so important. For that we go to Bloomberg. Daybreak Asia host Brian Curtis in Hong Kong and his colleague Doug Prisoner. Thank you. Now, one of the exciting possibilities for the pole is no more. The estranged brother of Singapore's prime minister will not stand. Lisa and Young said he decided to step aside because quote Singapore. It does not need another league. Well, that said Brian Singapore will surely get another early Prime Minister Lee Shin loans People's Action Party has won every election since independence back in 1965 and that is not likely to change this year. It's going to be very interesting and one point Whether or not these results will reflect the P a piece handling of the covert 19 crisis to get some insight. Brian and I asked Bloomberg's the bureau chief in Singapore, Joyce Co. To join us. Thanks so much for being with us, Joyce. I guess. Let's pick up on that issue of the fact that there is unlikely to be any surprise outcome in the election. But the question is whether or not this is going to reflect in anyway. Voter sentiment on the prime minister's Handling of the crisis. What do you think? Hi. Hi, guys. Yeah, that's right. Reading something awful way election has kicked off into losing so long has Put the nation that this will be election like no other And that's because this is happening in the midst of the pandemic, and he's asked for the elections to be be called because he wants a fresh slate. He thinks that things have stabilized and it's a good time, too. To get to hold this post to get a good men date for the ruling party we've seen over the last few months and sing upon the government has really tried to get control of the crisis. I's been interesting journey is a lot of ups and downs to sing off over here. So we set it up. Well, we We held out the model of how to contain the virus, but against like many other countries who cut also by how contagious and asymptomatic the virus who are still Somewhere in April with various cases such in a foreign worker Dhamma trees with a lot of these farm workers stay and live in close quarters, and that has actually pushed the surgeon does that. Our workers has actually pushed all virus told the various cases in Singapore to more than 40,000 which is one of the highest in Asia, the government has said. Repeatedly that, um the cases have been so high because they're doing a lot of testing, and a lot of these people have been asymptomatic. If you look at the total cases, actually. About 0.5% of the people actually in hospitals, and we have one of the lowest fatality rate in the world. I think a lot of people really admire Singapore. It's it's AH, It's a place where Have a first rate health care system. It's one of the richest countries in the world, great schools and all that. And a pretty good social safety. That too, so other than the handling of the Corona virus outbreak. What are some of the key issues that really move the populace? I think the main thing for a lot of people would be the economic fallout and how the government would be dealing of it. We've heard a lot of about this being said during the during the run up to the election. Something about facing a contraction of as much as 7% this year, and this would be the list contractions since our independence in 1965. So it's AH It's a big blow to the economy for people for us, so I used to be a success and be thankful girl continuously every year. It is a quite scary dudes that the economy would be contracting so much. If the government off their shows have won that more businesses local Glenda that unemployment rate in Singapore could could hit a record this year. So the grim picture actually off the economics in Singapore, some of the economic analysis that has been done surrounding the economic fall out of the crisis. Comes away with a conclusion that is essentially created a greater wealth gap. And I'm wondering how that's playing out in Singapore. I was reading that over 80% of the population live. In public housing, and I'm wondering about how this may may figure into this election. Well, we've had for stimulus budget in about 100 days in Singapore this year and the Singapore Sending about Singapore dollars 100 billion almost 100 million to to try to prop up the economy and still for a lot of people who find themselves other jobs or businesses who are ah Facing lots of troubles. We're seeing the government giving up the direct cash handouts, which is pretty rare onto people. So blessing apartments like me. We get $600 count. India had 303 $100.
