NSP urges a National Referendum

February 23, 2013

The National Solidarity Party have written letters to PM Lee Hsien Loong and President Tony Tan, urging them to call for a National Referendum on the population White Paper.

The letter to PM Lee noted that despite Parliament’s adoption, the majority of votes do not “reflect the views of Singaporeans because the PAP Members of Parliament clearly voted along party lines”.

“The future of this country is something that all Singaporeans have a stake in. It is only right that they should have a say in it as well. For this reason, we call on the Government to hold a National Referendum on the White Paper,” it concluded.

“In announcing your intention to run in the last Presidential Election, you had said, ‘I believe that the next President of Singapore may have to make very significant decisions that will affect the security and well‐being of all Singaporeans,'” said the letter.

Who says that the majority of the votes are not the personal opinions of the MP’s themselves. Yes of course they vote along party lines but the party have to convince them also why to vote in favor for the proposal. These MP’s are really not stupid and vote blindness what the party says but oversee the bigger picture of why our population has to grow to survive.

If you call yourself a National Solidarity Party you should have solidarity for all the races and people living in Singapore. Only what I hear is this press release is populist talk to favor again Singaporean Citizens above the rest of the population. The NSP is clearly forgetting that PR’s and Foreigners also helping to build this nation and pay their contribution to this country.
