TSMP Law Corporation Head of IP & TMT Adrian Tan was quoted in a TODAY article published on 14 July 2020 on the designation of Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh as Leader of the Opposition.
He called the formalising of the Leader of the Opposition a “historic moment” for Singapore, and that it is a sign of a maturing democracy.
“Bestowing official recognition of the Leader of the Opposition gives the opposition a sense of permanence in Parliament,” he said.
“With a formal Leader of the Opposition having appropriate state resources, the Workers’ Party will have to respond by raising their game. With the added resources will come an added pressure to provide more detailed proposals and ideas on various issues.”
