Correct me if I'm wrong, but since Parliament has been dissolved on 21 April, shouldn't all Cabinet apppointments be expired as well? Yet CNA has been consistently using appointment titles like MM Lee, PM Lee and SM Goh.
It's notable that election officers at the nomination centres correctly used Mr, Ms, and Dr when announcing candidate names.
This matter should be clarified by the election officers, but then again I feel that as they are not independent this seems unlikely to happen. What it does indicate is the open bias in favour of the PAP of Channel News Asia. Just look at the opening paragraphs and headline of the latest article on Mr Lee Hsien Loong.
PM Lee begins campaigning at Ang Mo Kio GRC
By Asha Popatlal, Channel NewsAsia
SINGAPORE : With 47 seats being contested in the upcoming General Election, political candidates were out busy canvassing for votes from the constituents a day after Nomination Day.
Among them was Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who last faced a contest 18 years ago.
There were a few surprised faces but mostly smiles when the early morning crowd in Ang Mo Kio encountered the Prime Minister during his morning walkabout.
One of his first stops was the MRT station where he greeted people queuing for a copy of their "TODAY" newspaper and others rushing to work.
Mr Lee has been with the Teck Ghee ward since he joined politics but this is the first time he is facing a contest since 1988.
And he is not making light of this challenge.
PM Lee said: "I'm taking it quite seriously otherwise I would not be here."
Is it PM Lee or Mr Lee since Parliament has been dissolved?
