This is Marine Parade MP Goh Chok Tong’s message to his PAP cadres, which was published in the November issue of the party’s magazine, Petir. It’s aimed at reminding Singaporeans of their basic values.
Read on and see if you agree with Mr Goh.
“The PAP has built a harmonious and cohesive nation, taking into account and balancing the diverse and sometimes conflicting beliefs, ideologies and interests of the people. It has accumulated strengths and experience to continue to chart a clear course forward and to forge consensus on the major issues facing Singapore.
The PAP is not just an ordinary political party with partisan views and advancing only vested interests. It is a unique and key institution – the only party able to hold our country together.
The PAP lives by its bedrock values of integrity and equal opportunity for all Singaporeans to maximise their potential and reap the rewards of their efforts. That is why we wear white on special party occasions. It is to remind ourselves and Singaporeans of our fundamental values.”
