Process is transparent and secured with safeguards, Teo Chee Hean tells forum
By Jeremy Au Yong
THE Singapore electoral system came under scrutiny at a youth dialogue yesterday, as participants quizzed Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean and other officials on the finer points of the process.
Questions flew thick and fast, with many centred on the neutrality of civil servants who serve as election officials.
Responding, Mr Teo assured the 200 young people at the two-hour session that Singapore had a ‘high integrity system’.
