Except for 2, most of the new candidates are from GLCs or banks.
It is likely that all of them will serve as part-time MPs given their current high paying jobs which they will probably keep. I believe Singaporeans' problems now require full time attention not part-timers. We need more MPs closer to the ground not more of the same corporate high-flyers who will seek to maintain the status quo. I guess the people who really care about changing the system to benefit Singaporeans will emerge from parties other than the PAP.
