Singapore prime minister to address nation on Tuesday

ASEAN Plus Three Summit in Bangkok

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore’s prime minister will address the nation on Tuesday as it emerges from weeks of lockdown to curb the COVID-19 pandemic and as speculation mounts about a looming general election.

Lee Hsien Loong is set to speak at 4 p.m. local time (0800 GMT), he said in a Facebook post.

Singapore last week lifted most of its curbs on socialising, shopping and dining after more than two months of coronavirus lockdown.
