Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has urged Singaporeans to”have confidence, no matter today’s sad dispute”, and to count on the Government to uphold the system of governance build by the late Lee Kuan Yew and his team that respects the rule of law.
Meanwhile, a segment of Singaporeans have urged Lee siblings Dr Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang to stop “washing their dirty linen” in public.
However, Dr Lee believes that the move by her and Lee Hsien Yang to throw the Lee family inheritance dispute into the public eye has forced the government to be more transparent.
In a Facebook post, Dr Lee said:

The prime minister is expected to be grilled on allegations of abuse of power by him and hid wife Ho Ching, and conflicts of interest in Cabinet.
