If anyone is wondering which party will win Singapore’s election on Friday, just listen to the opposition.
Pritam Singh, the leader of the country’s only elected opposition party in Parliament, warned in June of a "wipe out” that could see the sitting government win every seat. The Progress Singapore Party (PSP), founded by former ruling-party cadres, is more optimistic: It’s urging voters to give the opposition just a third of parliamentary seats.
"There’s no need to worry that the government will be voted out,” Leong Mun Wai, a top PSP official, told reporters during a virtual press briefing last month. "This has been demonstrated again and again in our electoral history, to the frustration of many of my alternative camp colleagues.”
