MPs know not to write to courts but potential PM doesn’t

It was earlier reported that People's Action Party's Whip, Chan Chun Sing made a U-turn and wrote a memo to all [email protected] MPs on 9 Feb, telling them that they should refrain from writing directly to the courts on behalf of their residents. He has been identified by the media as one of the 3 possible contenders to be Singapore's next PM.

This was a complete U-turn from his earlier statements to the press saying that [email protected] MPs writing directly to courts is usually done for urgent cases. "In urgent cases, such as if the court hearing is in the next few days, MPs may sometimes use their discretion to give letters by hand to residents to be used in court," he said earlier. He further added that [email protected] has no specific governing rules on the sending of MP letters to the courts or other agencies.

When Chan made the U-turn and wrote the memo to tell [email protected] MPs not to write to the courts directly, TODAY interviewed West Coast GRC MP Patrick Tay and other [email protected] MPs to get their views on the matter.

They told TODAY that they are aware of the "long-standing practice" for [email protected] MPs not to write to the courts on behalf of their constituents.

MP Patrick Tay said he would explain why he would not do so, when faced with such requests from his constituents.

"I’ve been a party activist for 20 years, and even during those days when I was branch secretary, we had this long-standing thing where we don’t write to the courts," he added.

It's strange that MPs like Patrick Tay are aware of the reasons for not writing to courts so as not to be seen interfering with the judicial process.

But our potential PM appears not to know and has to be corrected by a retired judge through ST Forum page.

What do you think of Chan as our future PM?

[email protected] with a strong 70% support they have all the power to appoint Chan CS as the next PM anytime.

The question is not what do you think but what can you do about it?

PM Lee got only 3 Bad Choices out of the 80 MPs.

No wonder he cannot retire permanently peacefully.
