MHA Statement on Allegations of Singapore’s Interference in Foreign Elections and Advisory Against the Importation of Foreign Politics

Published: 04 January 2024

1. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is aware of recent allegations circulating online that Singapore might be used as a platform for Indonesia’s upcoming Presidential Elections, including claims that there are funds in Singapore meant for supporting certain candidates.

2. The Singapore Government takes a clear and strong stand against the importation of politics of other countries into Singapore. Persons visiting, working or living in Singapore should not use Singapore to conduct political campaigning or fundraising to further a political agenda overseas. We will deal firmly with any individual or group found to be doing so, including termination of immigration facilities.
