Malaysia Chronicle Predicts A Singapore Tsunami

We excerpt from the Malaysia Chronicle :

"Change is coming to Singapore. For sure this time. Large crowds are attending the opposition's rallies and more than 20,000 flocked to hear the Workers' Party at Hougang a few nights ago.

Singapore practises a unique kind of electoral system where 75 of the seats are gathered into groups of 4, 5 or 6 and called GRC's. Ostensibly, it is to ensure minority participation but in actuality it stacks the deck against the opposition. In past elections, it was difficult for them to gather the numbers to contest GRCs. It also increased the cost barrier for them, and as a result, the PAP would win the GRCs mostly uncontested. Not this time, though."
