SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said a coalition government for Singapore was not on his mind, as a Financial Times article had suggested.
During a recent interview, he was asked by an FT journalist if he could envisage a day when the People's Action Party is not in power.
In a post on Facebook, Mr Lee on Sunday said: "Some journalists have asked me whether I was really thinking of a coalition government in Singapore.
"My press secretary has told them that what I meant was that I could imagine a situation one day where the PAP is not dominant, but that I had no idea how that would work, or whether it could be made to work at all.
"To think that instead of PAP dominance we will have a stable two-party system is naive.
