Reform Party chief Kenneth Jeyaretnam supports citizen ownership

At the by-election in Punggol East, Singapore, in Jan 2013, Kenneth Jeyaretnam emphasizes citizen-ownership.

"The wealth of Singaporeans should belong to Singaporeans. 
That's why from the beginning I have put forward a stand to distribute Temasek and GIC shares to all Singaporeans."

The estimated citizen ownership dividend is at least $9,000 for every Singaporean every year.

"We've got a full raft of policies on universal healthcare. We believe in universal free education, a reduction in NS, much better income support for families with children."

With $9,000 per citizen, a family of four will get $36,000. That is definitely "much better income support for families with children"!
