What makes a great PM

I was reading P N Balji's comment on the barriers of age, gender and race. And he mentioned that LKY was a PM at 35, Chok Tong at 49 and Hsien Loong at 52. For this, he suggested that the future PM could be older, maybe in the 60s. This is natural as our population, including the supertalents will live to 100. And if they are not fruitfully employed after 60s, then they will be rotting somewhere and will be a waste of their talents. But it would be better if we can find younger PM, say below 35. From the above statistics it is proven that the younger the PM, the better will be his contribution and achievements. And this is only logical. For if a young man in his 30s can shine and be seen as good enough to be a PM, then he is truly an exceptional talent. And he will grow in his job. An older PM will just slow down with time and age. So, an older PM is not the best choice.

Younger and younger PM's translates into more and more MM's and SM's in years to come. Is that the game plan?

The question to ask: who is sitting behind the screen at the back of the throne seat.

You mean some are going to be just seat warmers again?

In the political sphere, there is only one thing which determines whether one is "great" or not:

that is being voted in consistently by the population, and staying out of the way of the gunsights of assassins.
