Updated to reflect constructive, nation-building media  breaking story and some more boasting from me

Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat is set to be named by the People’s Action Party (PAP) as its first assistant secretary-general on Friday (Nov 23), paving the way for him to succeed Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as the country’s top leader, a senior party leader and several cadres confirmed to TODAY.

What I predicted in 2015: The next PM has been unveiled

My original post earlier today

Joint first assistant secretary-generals lah, ST

That’s what Secret Squirrel told me when I told him

Singaporeans will get a good indication of who is most likely to succeed Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as People’s Action Party (PAP) leader and the country’s fourth prime minister tomorrow.

Sources said that the party’s top decision-making body met last night to finalise its choice of who fills the crucial post of first assistant secretary-general.

[…]

The choice for first assistant secretary-general appears to have narrowed down to two contenders: Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat, 57, and Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing, 49.

Constructive, nation-building ST

Secret Squirrel’s side-kick, Morocco Mole, reminded me that Darth Shah told the plebs not to read too much in coming changes to the PAP’s politburo.

And do remember that PM has the hindsight of knowing that Goh Cock Tong was a lame duck PM from the day he became PM because everyone knew who his successor would be even if it took 14 yrs to happen.

Somehow I doubt PM would like to be like Goh in that respect.
