I won't say there is a "favourite" candidate. Because it is a team effort. To use someone's analogy, it is not a soccer team, where I could have a "favourite" player. It is about our collective future and how I would like the team to address issues, tackle challenges not just on covid-19, but also post covid-19.

but i do see the quality of alternative parties improved over the years. they could now attract people with all walks of lives, including former civil service and military. slightly disappointed with some of the candidates who claimed to have risen from disadvantaged background, yet did not say much on how they would attempt to level the playing field or close the rich-poor divide.​​​

To add on to what CH said:

For the young/ new candidates, we should also see if they have the ability and the drive to improve Singapore's current and future. Just simply from how they present themselves speaks a lot. Those who are ready for the challenges should thus be given a chance, not simply because they are in either in opposition parties or the ruling party.

I do not want to hear their history. I want to how do they address future challenges. Do their promises backed by their credentials?

Simple. No grandmother stories
