Open Letter against Gutter Politics

There is an online petition ongoing now calling the PAP to put a stop to gutter politics. The petition is penned by a group of 30 people including former NMP Siew Kum Hong, actor Lim Kay Siu, writer Alfian Sa’at etc.

We are a group of Singaporeans who have been following the progress of the current Bukit Batok by-elections.
We would like to categorically state that we do not condone the personal attacks and character assassination made by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob, and Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu, against Dr Chee Soon Juan of the SDP.

We are deeply saddened at the manner in which the campaign is run, having deteriorated to a level that undermines our Singaporean values. It is indeed a sad state of affairs when people who have been entrusted with positions of power and leadership perpetuate such unbecoming behaviour. We want an election campaign that addresses the pertinent issues facing Singaporeans, rather than one that is marred primarily by the vilification of anyone’s person.

Sincerely,
Alfian Sa’at, Alfred Dowel, Andrew Loh, Ariffin Sha, Braema Mathi, Dana Lam, Fong Hoe Beng, Glen Goei, Goh Ming Siu, Howard Lee, Jasmine Teo, Jeanne Lim, Jolovan Wham, Kevin Ho, Lee Hui Min, Leona Yuen, Leslie Low, Lim Kay Siu, Lynn Lee, M. Ravi, Neo Swee Lin, Peter Low, Rachel Zeng, Ravi Philemon, Siew Kum Hong, T. Sasitharan, Tay Bee Pin, Terry Xu ,Vanessa Ho, Vivian Wang, Yeng Pway Ngon
