Mr Junichi Fukasawa, Editor of South East Asia for The Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan’s major daily newspaper with 10 million copies sold daily, interviewed me on Friday 30 Dec 2011. He wanted to talk about the state of democracy in Singapore and the growing sense of citizens for democracy as it was felt that the general and presidential elections this year have demonstrated the wishes of a large segment of the electorate for change; he wanted to know the reasons for Singaporeans’ unhappiness with the government. I explained how the economic and social policies of the government have divided the nation and caused great distress to ordinary citizens who have now openly expressed how they feel. He asked what this would lead to in the future. I told them the voters have shown their sentiments against single party dominance and preference for diversity in the same way that the Japanese have rejected the dominance of the LDP in favour of diversity of political parties.The day may come when Singaporeans welcome a coalition government like more than 75 other countries in the world today.
