Much effort is needed to nurture constructive politics: MP Low Thia Khiang

Singapore Parliament

Much effort is needed to nurture constructive politics in mature democracies, said Aljunied GRC MP Low Thia Khiang. He said constructive politics does not happen "by the order of the government", nor does it happen through a national conversation or public consultation. Mr Low added that if people continue to support a political party that uses "high-handed" tactics against its political opponents, a "bullying" political culture is being endorsed. He also cautioned against building a self-serving political culture.
