Singapore is ranked 173 out of 198 countries for ‘Electoral Freedom’. Why?

I refer to the article “Malaysia ranks 125 in world electoral freedom index, better than Singapore” (themalaymailonline, Jan 26).

It states that “In the inaugural World Electoral Freedom Index (WEFI) released last week, Malaysia scored 61.95 out of 100 points and was ranked 125 worldwide, behind several other countries like Bangladesh (107), Libya (106) and the Philippines (41).

In South-east Asia, Malaysia performed better than Singapore, which was ranked at 173rd place with 54.21 points.”

Why is it that Singapore’s ranking is so low?

  • PAP has the mandate:

    Unfortunately, Stinkies are to be blamed for this situation for their cowardice.

    No thanks to PAP for scoring such a high points. This ranking proved we are no different to N. Korea. We the law abiding citizens are shamed by the regime, and rule the country in thug fashion.

    > MIWs will not accept any surveys that label them in negative light.

    Thru simple “sleight of hands”, the top list becomes – Top-Ranked – “from the bottom” – “yay” :(

    At the click of my mouse, I’m able to know where sg stands in the latest study of the Electoral Freedom, a piece of news which my neighbour who has paid $1.10 for his ST wouldn’t know. Apparently, good news about sg is real news but bad news is fake news, so MSM won’t tell. Kerkerker!

  • When you cheat:

    In South-east Asia, Malaysia performed better than Singapore, which was ranked at 173rd place with 54.21 points.”

    Why is it that Singapore’s ranking is so low?

    When you cheat to disadvantage the oppositions, or to keep them out, or to disqualify them with arbitrary and illogical arguments or excuses, how do you expect to be ranked high?

    The rest of the world can see through you.

  • Singapore is a fake democracy:

    Bapak:
    The list is too long, but just by these is good enougth:-
    - Gerrymandering,
    - Inside is not within 200m,
    - Indian can be Malay.

    Also include ballots with serial numbers matched to voter’s name. Therefore, not secret. Used to “intimidate” voters thinking of voting for the Opposition.

  • NotMyProblem:

    173 out of 198 is very good already, I am sure the World Electoral Freedom Index did not even include the Election of President. The Indian Malay President was SELECTED, we were not given the chance to elect.

    173 was fake, should be much higher, if Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC by-election is to be included also.

  • Why? Why? Why?:

    Can the Gahment tell Singaporeans the real reason?

    We strive to build a democratic society based on justice and equality.

    Why recite the national pledge if we do not practise what is preached!

  • HarderTruths:

    “Why is $G’s ranking so low?”

    Is this s trick question? Let me rephrase that question another way.

    “Why is $G run by dumb fucks voted in by even dumber fucks – who are made to work as pariahs under FT bosses and giving all their hard earned wealth to a bloodsucking government of dumb fucks they voted for in the first place?”

    I think the answer is quite clear now.
