Abstract
The effects of Singapore's May 7th election are still being felt in this global city state. When the results came in, the incumbent People's Action Party (PAP) had marked its worst performance since independence, losing 39.9% of the popular vote and a record six seats out of 87 in one of the country's most competitive elections. Bridget Welsh, Associate Professor at the Singapore Management University,discusses the implications of the recent general election in Singapore as the incumbent party grapples with responding to an awakened electorate that sent a clear message—change.
