    At the top, you have Prime Ministers, followed by all the Ministers of the various departments, e.g. education, health, finance, foreign affairs, defence etc.
    Then there are MPs and NMPs who are elected by the citizens. An MP may or may not be a Minister. These MPs and NMPs belong to political parties like PAP, SDP, WP etc. Each MPs/NMPs are like the ‘mayors’ of each smaller towns in Singapore. They are selected based on merit, based on their education level and years of service and capability. Each Singapore citizen is allowed to speak directly to their MPs who will then address their concerns and help them. Citizens in Singapore have many avenues to reach the government, by letters to the newspapers’ forum, through the MPs, through discussions in the PAP Youth groups, through speaking to RC members.
