New Politics and Old Managerialism: Welcome to the New Normal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Singapore General Election (GE) of May 2011 was reasonably regarded at the time as a turning point in Singapore's political development. At this election the opposition broke through to win its first multi-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC), giving it a serious beachhead in parliament for the first time since independence. GRCs were designed precisely so that they could not be won by the opposition, which made this breakthrough particularly significant.
