These measures will be in place for a month.
Despite serious reservations by Singaporeans and the mounting measures being implemented to curb the spread of coronavirus, the government has not ruled out holding an election in the midst of the pandemic.
In a Facebook post on Sunday evening, Lee backed Dr Tan’s party and echoed his sentiments that the ruling party has “lost its way”.
Cambodian and Vietnamese netizens and key government officials pointed out that PM Lee’s Facebook post notably failed to mention the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge and their incursions into Southern Vietnam that forced Hanoi to invade in the first place.
Le Thi Thu Hang, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said Vietnam “regrets” that the statement did not reflect history objectively, causing negative public opinions.
