This year’s People’s Action Party (PAP) conference and the party’s Central Executive Committee election will be closely watched for clearer signs of who will eventually become Singapore’s next prime minister.

It is an all-white affair that takes place once every two years: Over a thousand men and women congregate for the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) conference, where they will elect the party’s top decision-making body, take stock of its performance thus far and chart the party’s path forward.

However, unlike previous conferences, the one to be held later this year is set to hold added significance: For the first time, the identity of the man who will eventually become the next chief of the PAP and in all likelihood, the Republic’s next prime minister is expected to become clearer to Singaporeans through the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) election.
