Workers' Party congratulates incoming Prime Minister Lawrence Wong, thanks Mr Lee Hsien Loong for service

SINGAPORE: The Workers ‘ Party ( WP ) on Wednesday ( May 15 ) congratulated Mr Lawrence Wong as he prepares to take over as Singapore’s Prime Minister&nbsp, from Mr Lee Hsien Loong.

In a statement, WP captain and Leader of the Opposition Pritam Singh also acknowledged and thanked Mr Lee for his “long years of public services and leadership”, including his 20 times as Singapore’s next Prime Minister.

” Mr Wong is taking over the management of our country during an age of greater social conflict, with citizens expecting greater clarity, and a greater say in public plans”, said Mr Singh.

” The path ahead for our country is still challenging in light of significant generational shifts on the home front on the one hand, and an ambiguous and more uncertain additional environment on the other.

A wider range of voices, including those from elected opposition people in parliament, may be crucial stabilisers for our politicians, a source of strength, and an expression of trust in our people and our country to meet these challenges.

Mr. Singh wished Mr. Wong the very best in his new position, adding that the WP will continue to play our parliamentary role in order to improve Singapore’s and its citizens ‘ interests.
