HOUSING will not be a make-or-break issue in this year's general elections, National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan said on Sunday.
'There are so many other issues,' he told reporters at a press conference after a youth dialogue on the new Tampines Town Hub.
Mr Mah said the opposition party's proposals would devalue the assets of a million HDB home owners.
He added that those ill-conceived suggestions would distort the market.
Mr Mah said the Workers' Party avoids answering the questions directly when the very serious flaws in its proposals are exposed.
He pointed out that the government understands Singaporeans' concerns about the recent rise in prices, and is committed to ensuring that housing remains affordable for present and future generations
In a detailed four-page statement he issued on Sunday, he reiterated that the WP's suggestion to reduce new flat prices would 'distort the market and destroy the value of the million flats owned by Singaporeans today'.
'Despite WP's denial, it's proposal to lower flat prices by paying less for land will constitute a draw on reserves,' he added.
Mr Mah also described Workers' Party leader Low Thia Khiang as 'mischievous' for alleging that the Government has been guilty of taking from Singapore's reserves for years.
