Public service, political leadership must be partners: PM Lee

For Singapore to be successful, public service must also be 'fundamentally aligned' with elected leaders, he said

Mr Lee noted that splits between public servants and political leaders in Australia and the UK have had unhappy results.


A HIGH-QUALITY public service is critical, but for Singapore to be successful, it must work closely with a "first-class political leadership", said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Friday.

It must also be fundamentally aligned with elected leaders, he added.
