One Minute: Reform Party’s (RP) GE2020 Election Manifesto
Build Back Better, Fairer
“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
The government should spend more on Singaporeans.
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.
Unemployment benefit of up to six months based on 75% of last drawn salary with a cap of $2500 per month.
Seniors’ benefit for over 65s of $500 per month
Child benefit of $300 per child per month for those at or below 1.5 median incomes
Universal health care
Free university education for those who have served NS
Minimum wage of $10 per hour which will ensure more jobs go to Singaporeans and better wages for foreign workers
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.
