Deputy Prime Minister (cum Home Affairs Minister) Wong Kan Seng, Minister for National Development Mah Bow Tan, and Minister for Transport Raymond Lim, will leave the Cabinet. According to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong the three men had previously expressed a desire to step down but decided to stay on to fight the recently concluded May 7 Singapore General Election. Wong Kan Seng is often blamed for Terrorist Mas Selamat escape, Mah Bow Tan for sky rocketing cost of public housing and Raymond Lim was blamed for the high cost of transportation in Singapore.
Teo Chee Hean will be Home Affairs Minister (Immigration/Foreign Talents), Khaw Boon Wan will become National Development Minister (Housing) and Lui Tuck Yew will be Transport Minister (SBS/MRT/COE). According to most Singaporeans, these there were the worst performing ministries. With an incredible lot of damage have been caused and a lot more of tidying up the mess needs to be done. However many also felt that the change came too late, as the damage has already been done.
Yeah… Clap. Clap. Bye. Bye. MBT (Mah Bow Tan).
