8 New Ministries in the new Singapore cabinet???

Now that the hype of the General Elections has blown over, the whole nation waits with anticipation to see who Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong will be picking to fill the different portfolios, more so for the new faces who were introduced at the recent #GE2015.

There are 15 government ministries in Singapore to fill, and 20 cabinet ministers in the last term of parliament.

But what if PM Lee decides to have new ministries to look after the growing needs of Singaporeans? What would these ministries be called, and who would be the ideal candidates to helm these ministries? We try to be witty and come up with names for the new ministries:

1.) Ministry of Fashion

–  Baey Yam Keng

PRITAM SINGH VS SHANMUGAM

Law Minister K Shanmugam Sc tells Workers' Party MP Pritam Singh in Parliament he has a "very interesting definition of transparency". http://cna.asia/ahpetcaudit

During a parliament debate on the AGO’s report on the AHPETC’s audit lapses, Mr Pritam Singh reportedly told Minister Shanmugam that he would explain the lapses to his constituents instead of him. That did not go down well with the house, and fellow parliamentarian colleague Sam Tan asked Mr Singh to explain to the house since he was a resident of Aljunied GRC.

3.) Ministry of Cooking

7.) Ministry of Feeling

The PAP is like a grandmother – Sun Xueling

(This short statement by Sun Xue Ling made us tear a little bit. We've attempted an English translation, but the strength of the speech is still in Hokkien)"The PAP have been here for a very long time.The relationship between the PAP and Singapore…is like a long drawn relationship between husband and wife. And this marriage had lasted for the past 50 years.The wife now is aged. Today you’ll see a woman with a head of white hair. Her skin is now not as supple. She’s not beautiful anymore. Perhaps you think that this woman has now lost her charm. Whatever pretty dresses she puts on isn’t going to make her look better.And in this marriage, there is a very big family. Many grandchildren. Many nephews and nieces. As a grandmother now, she’s been busy helping you to look after the grandchildren…and perhaps so busy that she’s forgotten to help you prepare dinner. Sometimes she’s been giving money to our children to buy clothes, that she’s forgotten to give the nephews their lunch money.You might think this grandma had been stingy…but look at her: old and with not much time left…why would she want to keep all this wealth for?I wanna say to you, old one. I’m worried. I’m worried that once you’re gone, who’s going to look after our children in this chaotic world?We’ve been here 50 years. You know where our heart is. You know what we’re like. It’s been so long, there are some words that can’t be articulated, can’t be said…and I feel bad. I just hope that you’ll trust us. We’ll be with you. As long as there’s a gasp of air in this old grandma, she’ll look after you. And believe me. Whatever it is we do – it is all for Singapore’s interest."#GE2015

Her moving Hokkien speech likening the relationship between Singaporeans with the People’s Action Party to an elderly couple was well-received and many were moved by it.
