Former PM Goh Chok Tong, in his last National Day Rally speech to the nation, made a reference to an alleged event in Lee Hsien Loong’s early career as a junior minister.
Tan shared that many times the PAP leaders told that they will be sacking him but never did so because they knew that he has no hidden agenda and that his agenda is very clear, which is the country comes first.
February 10, 2019 marks Lee Hsien Loong’s 67th birthday. Here is a quick look back on the life of Singapore’s current Prime Minister.
As of Jan 2019, he has been in power for 14 years and 142 days, edging out Goh Chok Tong who held that office for just under 14 years. This makes PM Lee the current longest-serving leader of a first world country. In that time PM Lee has seen 3 Singapore Presidents, 4 US Presidents, 4 British Prime Ministers, 3 Malaysian Prime Ministers, and 2 Chinese Presidents.
