The implications of a non-PAP victory go beyond geographical consequences and vague notions of a change in the country’s political imagination.
If a non-PAP victory were to be realised, I would expect changes in SPH and media bodies, perhaps moving towards a BBC/UK system, where media is independent of politics.
I would also expect the landscape of SG’s intellectual environment to open up, where political think-tanks might set up shop to provide multi-partisan opinions. In short, an exciting place.
These are uncertainties, not likely to happen, but nonetheless, side-consequences that one could perhaps look forward to.
