Al Jazeera coverage on Singapore GE 2011

The 24-minute clip titled, "101 East: Singapore elections". (Yes, Nicole Seah from Nicole Seah's Party aka NSP aka the opposition party previously known as the National Solidarity Party was also featured in this video! Yeah, hur hur!)

Quoted from the clip's summary uploaded by "AlJazeeraEnglish":
Singapore is renowned as an Asian powerhouse, boasting a clean government, a thriving economy and social cohesion.

Much of this nation's prosperity has been attributed to the ruling People's Action Party (PAP), which has been in power for more than 50 years.

But critics say Singapore's success has come at the price of freedom of expression and real democracy.
