A non liberal democracy

This is from the article, City-state a role model for the world, in The Star Online by Seah Chiang Nee about the many merit of Singapore.

Well-known author Catherine Lim painted this possible scenario for Singapore in 2030: “China rises to superpower status as the US declines and is in a position to offer an alternative to the discredited Western liberal democracy.

“In its skilful blend of authoritarianism and capitalism, its (China's) system is not unlike Singapore’s.

“If Singapore and China become thus twinned on the world stage, the Lee Kuan Yew model of governance will have achieved an international acceptance that the PAP could never have dreamed of.”
