Ministers must review policies to reflect concerns of S'poreans: Dr Balakrishnan

SINGAPORE: Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Vivian Balakrishnan said all ministers need to seriously review policies to ensure that the plans implemented reflect the concerns of Singaporeans.

"We all will have to draw right lessons from this election, and I think every minister will have to take a deep hard look at all our policies, everything we do, how we do, how we execute the policies, how we make sure that our policies reflect the key concerns and priorities of Singaporeans. That we implement with the spirit of the policy in mind rather than just more rigidly by the letter of the law," said Dr Balakrishnan.

Dr Balakrishnan said that based on feedback, the government needs to be more sensitive to needs on the ground and policies should reflect that.


Do you think voters will be listen to or paid more attention to had voters not voted for more opposition? Do you feel that PAP would not feel a need to review their policies if not for voters having voted for more opposition in this GE 2011?
