Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has said he wants to forge a new way forward with all Singaporeans, and the open discussion will see him answer questions raised by people from all walks of life.
SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong will answer questions 'live' on a TV forum on Channel NewsAsia on September 24.
The hour-long forum - called "Ask The Prime Minister" - will start at 8pm.
Mr Lee has said he wants to forge a new way forward with all Singaporeans, and the open discussion will see him answer questions raised by people from all walks of life.
Mr Walter Fernandez, MediaCorp's Editor-in-Chief, and Ms Sharon Tong, a presenter, will facilitate the session in a deeper discussion, on the long-term issues affecting Singapore.
Questions have been solicited from the public three weeks prior to the forum.
The list is curated and members of the public are invited to vote on the issues they want Mr Lee to respond to.
Producers had reached out to a wider group of the community through different ways to help them voice their thoughts.
The public was invited to record queries in mobile video booths at three places recently - Bugis Junction, Tampines Mall, and IMM in Jurong East.
The public was also asked to send in their queries online - through email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Ms Tan Lek Hwa, Executive Producer for the forum, said, "This forum is a good opportunity for a further conversation with the Prime Minister. We have attempted to cast the net wide for views that concern Singapore. We have senior journalists on set to articulate some of these questions and delve into a discussion with the Prime Minister in this one-hour programme."
Ask The Prime Minister will be live-streamed at channelnewsasia.com/askpmlee.
It would also display Twitter comments and other information on the forum.
