Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong yesterday called on Sengkang voters to support the People's Action Party (PAP) team over the rival Workers' Party (WP) team, criticising the opposition party's manifesto and calling it "PAP-lite". "Typically, the PM weighs in more for the key battleground constituencies," said Dr Walid Jumblatt Abdullah, assistant professor at NTU's School of Social Sciences. "The fact that he has chosen to do so for Sengkang shows the PAP's calculations on where the key test may be. The PM is lending some of his own credibility to the team."
