We have lost an experienced foreign minister, George Yeo. Here are some ways to get him back into this position.
The PAP can call a by-election in one of its SMCs. George Yeo can contest in the by-election and is likely to be returned to Parliament and can continue as foreign minister.
This requires one of the elected MP to be willing to give up his or her hard won seat for the good of the country. Any takers?
Another approach is to allow a minister to be appointed that is not a member of Parliament. Read my Open Letter to the Prime Minister here. This open letter was sent out a few days before the election.
