Chairman of MAS


This may be picking nits, but none of the sources mention Wong's chairmanship of the MAS. It may be obvious enough to not need it, per WN:SOURCE. It might assist the reviewer to proactively include a source to support it before it's reviewed, like this one:

It's not a nit, and it does need a source if it's going to stay in; the exemption from sourcing only applies to common knowledge on the level of obviousness of "Paris is in France". Heavy Water (talk) 20:51, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Done I added the source above and normalized the publisher of the other case of being used.
Note to reviewer: I included an <!--html comment--> as a citation. It can only be viewed using source editor. Also, the all-caps "WONG" is present in the source title as well as the URL so I kept it.

Heng's health issues


CNA stated the reason Heng stepped down was "his age and the lack of a proper "runway" for the top job," not health issues. The Straits Times reported similarly; "Mr Heng, who turns 60 this year, cited the long-term and profound challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, his age, and the demands of the top job, as reasons for his decision." Another Straits Times article states "Mr Heng, who turns 60 this year, cited his age, and the fact that the Covid-19 crisis will not come to an end soon as reasons for his decision."Michael.C.Wright (Talk/Published) 14:44, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Review of revision 4777395 [Passed]

Unless there's something I'm missing, this was stale when published (at eight days old). Heavy Water (talk) 23:51, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Officially sworn in


@Heavy Water @Michael.C.Wright I know this was published some time ago, but given that Lawrence Wong just officially swore in (and hence has become the PM) [1][2], and that this is somehow on the main page, would you advise that I amend the page such that the latest details have been reflected? (eg: ... Lawrence Wong is slated to become the fourth Prime Minister ... -> ... Lawrence Wong has sworn in as the fourth Prime Minister ...) S5A-0043 (talk) 13:48, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I'll defer to Heavy Water but I think a new article is typical in this situation. This article is still on our main page simply due to a lack of new articles to replace old ones on the main page. Michael.C.Wright (Talk/Published) 14:23, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Michael is right. A complete change of the focus, like that would be, couldn't happen after publication. Heavy Water (talk) 00:12, 25 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
