The way I see it… I think Singapore’s Cabinet can safely claim to have the highest mean level of academic qualification worldwide, not just compared to Malaysia. I am saying this based on the stringent recruitment criteria imposed by our ruling party into their rank and file. Many of us will call this “elitist”, but is this system necessarily a bad thing?

What do you think?
