MISSION

We stand for our Core Principles of equality, Justice for All, Direct Democracy, Fairness and Expansion of Opportunity. Peoples Voice wants to deliver a fairer and more prosperous society for the many, and not just the privileged few. Over the years, no one who has lived in Singapore can fail to recognise how the State has become ever more powerful and rich at the expense of the individual. Due to the PAP’s disastrous immigration, housing, CPF, jobs and healthcare policies, the State has become richer while the common man has become poorer. Many Singaporeans no longer feel that this country is their home or that they belong. The coming election will be the most crucial since our Nation’s independence. We need to regain our Country, our dignity, and our future, by restoring the balance of power in favor of the people. For Peoples Voice, it will always be about Putting People First and Making Singapore Our Home Again.
