My Take on Chan Chun Sing, our prospective PM

Chan Chun Sing(CCS) is highly touted to be our next PM. Albeit his impressive academic achievements, I think he is still not matured, tempered and experienced enough; and he also lacks of ministerial performance track record and political common sense to be our next PM.

A prospective PM he is now. But as a prospective leader for the highest office of the country, he must also be seen that he has the character, stature and capability now to become one. But just too bad he still has not exude all these qualities.

CCS had helmed some ministries and held some high power bureaucratic positions eg Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCDYS); Minister of State of Information, Communications and Arts (MICA); Minister for Social and Family Development (MSFD); Gen Secretary of NTUC; Deputy Chairman of People’s Association; etc.

Such resume looks very impressive but in reality, he does not even give us a bit of tinkering of what are his core contributions to the country so far.

For MCDYS, we only see that our community is getting more divided between the have and have not; more old people are picking cardboards and working as cleaners just to survive; and tension between Singaporeans and the foreign talents ( I rather label them as economic refugees) is getting more intense.

Our youths still lack the robustness and confidence of taking risk.

Our sport scene is pathetic. Our national sport, football is still getting nowhere.

For MICA, just as bad if not worse. Our main stream media is rated as one of the worst in the world.

Our artificial intelligence development is only playing catch up with many countries especially China.

We have nothing to talk about arts in any forms.

MSFD has been delivering nothing but only seen our divorcing rate keeps on increasing and fertility rate decreasing.

NTUC is supposed to protect and guard the interests of our labour force but what we have only seen so far is that increasingly number of highly educated and experience middle age Singaporeans are being replaced by high influx of economic refugees in their PMET jobs and have to resort to taking up underemployed vocations such as security guard, taxi or private hire car driver, delivery driver, insurance broker, property broker, etc to survive.

Also many of our young graduates who have gone thru’ one of the best education systems in the world are still unemployed or underemployed as Grab drivers or insurance agents. But on the other hand, we are seeing more young economic refugees from our regional third world neighbours like India, Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, Vietnam, etc keep on coming to Singapore to work in the more prestigious jobs in the IT, banking and MNC sectors. Besides, the academic degrees of many of these economic refugees are quite dubious.

Generally, our workers are under paid and over worked. Their wages have been stagnant for a long time and their working hour is one of the longest in the world.

For the People’s Association (PA) , I can’t say much. I only know that a couple of PAP MPs were forced to resign because of their amorous relationship with other people’s wives when they were involving in the PA’s so called social activities.

So I really do not know what were CCS’s contributions when he was helming those bureaucratic institutions.

A political leader must also look like a political leader in character and stature. I know is unfair to comment on his personality and stature because these are just what he is.

But with the prevalent social media, people can easily see a political leader in real action and therefore who you are is just as important as what you are.

CCS just does not have the disposition and stature of a statesman at this point.

There is totally no excuse for his immature and boy scout disposition ( being an army General before) during his political debut when he engaged with his audience by asking a serious and sensitive question (How long will Singapore be around, 5, 10, 50 years? )but childishly and jokingly asking his audience to ‘kee chiu’.

Just imagine how the Chinese people would think of Xi Jinping if he were to ask the audience in the Chinese National Congress, ‘How long will be the Communist Party of China (CCP) be around?’ and then childishly and jokingly asked his comrades to ‘kee chiu’ for the number of years. What happened if Xi said CCP could only last 5 years and the majority of the audience ‘kee chiu’. I think CCP would straight away dismiss him as a member.

The time existence of a country or a political party is a serious and sensitive issue. As a politician whether a rookie or veteran, he or she should have the political common sense not to take such issue as a joke.

No doubt, we should appreciate CCS’s academic and military achievements. But he obviously still very much lacks the exposure of the real world. His public speeches are too structured and pre-meditated and totally lacked of spontaneity. Typically like a lecturer giving lessons with the information all extracted from the text books. Therefore, he is not inspiring and motivating.

He is still very much living in his military mindset from the way he interacts with the public. He always like to dictate on people like they are his soldiers with the way he talks or speaks.

Well, I am not totally dismissing CCS as our next PM. Who knows who will be our next PM. ”

    Hmmm.. but pinky claims that there are more than one qualified.

    For that matter even if there’re are dime a dozen considered qualified, they appear to be half hearted and half baked. None is impressive nor charismatic nor inspiring to move and engage common people into the uncertain future.

    We notice that they’re pretty good in licking pinky balls and spouting high sounding speeches.

    He has both brains and brawn – lesser mortal will cower when bullied by big neighbours but he told the Indonesian off.

    I respected him not because of his look but because this guy has a lion heart and is very bright (topped WestPoint with special commendation).

  • What would LKY do?:

    The academic politician LKY saga relating to 6 collapsed to 2 cylinder engine should still be fresh in many seniors and possibly many NS graduates with picture of a bald academic preaching in the canteens which roti prata described well with his noises of the environment, What this poor shocked to enlightenment by his boss was just by his premature arrogance raised sky high by the roar of the 6 cylinder engines, he proudly told the journalists who crowd around this new PAP star catch, what will he be in the Parliament and party

    What will happen this this kid when he arrogantly told the press that he has NO PROBLEM in importing foreign Pmets to replace Singaporeans just in the same royal tone of his son telling the NYUC that Singaporeans should be hungrier, greedier and more aggressive than the foreigners so that they can STEAL the jobs from the foreigners. Understandably, the emperor would do nothing to the prince but this rotten idiot is something else.

    Many critics have opined that the son is nowhere near the the man’ Perhaps their opinion is really evidence by that the rotten idiot is still aroung paving the way to extinction which the old man has threatened he would return from wherever he is after death to deal with it. Mahathir is more down to earth. He stayed and made sure he does it with prethreathening, Ironical isn’t it with due respect for the death and the living very very very senior politician of this region.

  • Not much future in Sg:

    Agree, a true leader shows superiority and spontaneity of character.

    When this person steps forward to serve or is called upon to serve, there is air exuberance, expectation and persona exuding whether one calls it charisma or commanding presence.

    Good examples are aplenty – Gandhi, Mao, Thatcher, DT, XJP, LKY, …. latest Dr M.

    If blood runs thicker than water, life-time tenure is often only a step or two beyond the perfect harmony of the sycophant choirs in the minds of our “Dear Leader” types. How much can a neophyte zombie like CCS improve the common weal? PM Lee have built a complex framework of lies and denials which props up our wobbly joke of his definition of ‘qualified’ PM. The global clockworks underlying trade, technology, ecology, and all that must have enormous momentum, connected to enormous mass. I truly believe the current crop of spineless, craven, and amoral 4Gs would not only fully makes a complete puppy’s breakfast out of our institutions and infrastructures, the sad truth will be that not even LKY’s legacy will be able to unscramble the mess the prodigal son and his minions are creating. That said, this article is another unambiguous piece of evidence that the Singaporean public is polarized beyond reconciliation, and that its’ decline is inevitable. We are not living in a political transition now in Singapore but we are living in something worse: we are living in a dystopia in which the only thing that matters is political hegemony, and it’s downright chilling. It is happening before our eyes. If we don’t use our constitutional power soon to redress the grievances that constitute the present demagogue, the opportunity may be lost.

    Keechiu may have been shuffled along in a few ministeries in his political career but how much impact can the future PM have if he is shuffled around so often? How much would he have learned and contributed to the ministry if he is only there for 2 years or so? It feels more like a hi and bye.

    Smart people can see a wayang but the newspaper will tout this as if it’s something remarkable. Hey, if I was the boss I can also make a super outstanding employee be in the HR, finance, maintenance, IT, logistics and marketing departments in a span of 7 years ok.

    A rolling stone, as they say, gathers no moss. No one can think of anything outstanding or remarkable that keechiu, stroke man and Punggol (Hougang?) reject have done because there simply isn’t any. All 3 are along for the ride and the fat salary with the occasional report of saving for a rainy day, about how our dollar must remain strong and of course, conveniently carrying a stroller basket full of cardboard and newspapers for auntie and claiming that she is trying to save the environment.

    The problem with CCS and other potential PM in Cabinet is that they cannot criticize LKY, GCT, LHL, and PAP. None of them will admit that PAP, including LKY, made mistakes. CCS said recently he wants to make Singapore even stringer. What a joke? What “strength” is he talking about when Singaporeans have been suffering since LHL became PM from high prices with stagnant wages, loss of jobs to foreigners, over-priced HDB flats, depleted CPF accounts, etc.

  • Run out of solutions:

    Given the huge DEBT sg has, being ranked 11th most in debt in the world by CIA,
    I believe the white smurfs have run out of solutions.

    Singapore cannot rely on native citizens to innovate because of authoritarian rules that stiffled creativity since half a century ago.
    The businesses native Singaporeans do are not silicon valley type but import export , trading businesses which dun require leading edge innovation.
    So at the matured economy stage, SG has no more silver bullets it can use. By right, a matured economy should rely on innovation. But sg is a police state. It’s ruled using ruled by law concept. Most things happen here based on brute force. Want a Malay president. Presto !

    Want Olympic gold, China citizens given citizenship.

    It has no ability to achieve ORGANICALLY.
    ALL ARTIFICIALLY.

    Neither leadership nor economy or both can survive on political power and its annointed succession. There is NOT a single evidence that political grooming anywhere succeeds in the world – not even in the corporate world. GE is world top industrial behemoth under Jack Welch Jnr. His annointed successor, Jeffrey Immet is a wonder boy success story of value destroyer. After 16 yrs at the helm, GE is now nearly a wreckage. G3 in LEE-jiapore is a MONUMENTAL FONT of failure, must we risks G4 of DEMONSTRATED CLUELESS INCOMPETENCE?

    IN SUCCESS, SKILLS OVER RIDE everything – 4 Gs proven VOID of skills substance of even remote hint of any achievements till now WHILE LEE-jiapore sees persistence decline.

    After 30 years of hand-holding apprenticeship through economic/finance portfolio, G3 is a total disaster of failure unthinkable. If meritocracy works, this is a marvel of contradiction.

    HOW DO YOU THINK RECYCLED APPRENTICESHIPS OF A FEW MONTHS IN EACH MINISTRIES AND PORTFOLIO IS GOING TO SUCCEED – given the lack of skills-set and prior relevant corporate/business experiences. Trumps’s “apprentice” hardly walked into the door and had time to seep coffee, then leave for next apprenticeship WHILE TURBULENCES FANNED THE INFERNO OF CHANGE OUTSIDE and he clueless?

    IF POLITICAL GROOMING IS EVER NEEDED in the political or corporate world – the apprentice HAS ALREADY FAILED. He/she has no ability to rise like a phoenix on his/her own. Jack Ma, Bill Gate, Ray Dalio, Steve Jobs, Barack Obama, Xi JinPing, Deng Xiao Ping, Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg DIDN’T NEED to be baby-coddled to where they are now.

    In contrast, Mahathir groomed Anwar Ibrahim, threw him into the dungeon – only his loyal wife, Wan Azizah and his daughter Nurul through ardous political struggles save him. Badawi is next chosen blue-eye boy, he failed in the first term and disappeared into political oblivion. Thatcher chose John Major – failed. Suharto chose Habibie -failed.

    Wall Street has hundreds of groomed Ivy Leage MBAs – fall failed in the GFC.
