Decision time in Singapore

Unprecedented number of opposition candidates in election reflects public frustration over widening wealth gap.

    Singapore is set to hold general elections on Saturday and the ruling People's Action Party is facing its biggest electoral challenge in history.

    A widening income gap, rising living costs and an influx of foreign workers are all spurring public frustration in the Southeast Asian economic powerhouse. And this has led to an unprecedented number of opposition candidates running for office.
