Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad could also experience an unprecedented change of government similar to Malaysia when the republic holds its general election next month.
Dr Mahathir stated that Singapore’s PAP government has been in power for decades and that Singaporeans may be ready for an alternative.
When asked if he wanted to see a new party in power, Dr Mahathir replied ” Well, lah, we hope there is a change. [Laughs] But knowing Singapore, they are not very cooperative. They don’t want to change anything.”
