Lee Hsien Loong said ( about Lee Hsien Loong ) : "Of course we have to do our parts as Singaporeans, but the negative part is that because of COVID, we are not supposed to be gathering, and I’m afraid that there will be another wave of COVID,” she said. Lee's People’s Action Party, in power since 1959, is widely expected to keep its overwhelming majority in Parliament, where it currently holds 83 out of the 89 seats. The test will be whether it can retain the 69.9% share of the vote it received in 2015. The election is also pivotal for Lee, 68, who plans to retire and hand over power to a new crop of leaders. “This general election will be like no other that we have experienced. Not just because of the special arrangements to deal with COVID-19, but because of the gravity of the situation, and the issues at stake," External link

Lee Hsien Loong said ( about Lee Hsien Loong ) : "Of course we have to do our parts as Singaporeans, but the negative part is that because of COVID, we are not supposed to be gathering, and I’m afraid that there will be another wave of COVID,” she said. Lee's People’s Action Party, in power since 1959, is widely expected to keep its overwhelming majority in Parliament, where it currently holds 83 out of the 89 seats. The test will be whether it can retain the 69.9% share of the vote it received in 2015. The election is also pivotal for Lee, 68, who plans to retire and hand over power to a new crop of leaders. “This general election will be like no other that we have experienced. Not just because of the special arrangements to deal with COVID-19, but because of the gravity of the situation, and the issues at stake," External link

Lee Hsien Loong said ( about Lee Hsien Loong ) : "Of course we have to do our parts as Singaporeans, but the negative part is that because of COVID, we are not supposed to be gathering, and I’m afraid that there will be another wave of COVID,” she said. Lee's People’s Action Party, in power since 1959, is widely expected to keep its overwhelming majority in Parliament, where it currently holds 83 out of the 89 seats. The test will be whether it can retain the 69.9% share of the vote it received in 2015. The election is also pivotal for Lee, 68, who plans to retire and hand over power to a new crop of leaders. “This general election will be like no other that we have experienced. Not just because of the special arrangements to deal with COVID-19, but because of the gravity of the situation, and the issues at stake," External link
