Next Prime Minister?

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/heng-swee-keat-dpm-4g-leader-step-aside-pap-pm-lee-accepts-14581784 Seems like Mr. Heng is not going to be the next PM of Singapore, so I wonder who will replace Mr. Lee. I think we have many smart people in Singapore capable of leading this country, and I don't think it should always come from one place, if possible I would prefer the PM (and other key positions) to be chosen by the people, anyone who has the courage, the willingness to serve and the capability should be able to step forth and take up the challenge. Why I say need courage is because this person will be both loved and hated by the people, as a leader, it is impossible to make everyone happy, a lot of time tough decisions need to be made for the greater good and not everybody can see it or benefit from it.

Today finally tried this pay for street hail feature, very easy to use, just use the comfort booking app and scan the QR code inside the taxi, it's actually a sticker pasted on the rear passenger seat window, I think in front should have too.

How many? Nobody knows. Then the funny part about this news is that the benefit involved is so little, S$258 hotel stay and some transport services, like wtf, so how many our our civil servants also took this kind of small little bribes here and there, who knows, nobody knows, until someone report. Not sure what is the actual story but this case sounds like a deal went sour, then the person giving the bribes go sabo? Or maybe somebody whistle-blow? Anyway when this kind of news appear, I tend to lose confidence in our civil service, I tend to wonder how many of these garbage we have in our civil service, maybe it's time to do some spring cleaning? I hope our government will take action and
