One Minute: Reform Party’s (RP) GE2020 Election Manifesto

Slogan

Build Back Better, Fairer

Promise

“If our true reserves are at least $1.5 trillion, as my investigations over ten years have led me to believe, then we can afford to spend perhaps 4% of that every year. The Norwegians do just that with the assets in their Pension Fund.

That would mean an additional $60 billion of spending every year which is about what the Government is spending in this exceptional year on combating the economic effects of the pandemic.” – Reform Party

Key theme

The government should spend more on Singaporeans.

Priorities

  1. Suspension of GST for this year and next and then a review with a view to eliminating it on certain essential categories of spending like food, utilities and medicines.
  2. Unemployment benefit of up to six months based on 75% of last drawn salary with a cap of $2500 per month.
  3. Seniors’ benefit for over 65s of $500 per month
  4. Child benefit of $300 per child per month for those at or below 1.5 median incomes
  5. Universal health care
  6. Free university education for those who have served NS
  7. Minimum wage of $10 per hour which will ensure more jobs go to Singaporeans and better wages for foreign workers
  8. Employment pass minimum salary to be raised to at least $5,000 per month with a cap on total numbers. Additional tax for those who have not done NS.
