I don't know why they are not given english names.. Maybe a preference by the famiLEE .. But back to next Singapore PM , these 2 guys are leading contenders to next PM position provided the PAP still remains in power..

Ironically LKY's given name was 'Harry.' Usually it's the other way around. Many Singaporeans of my mother's generation took on 'English' names. I guess the fact they are also quite old. The trend of naming your children 'English' or Christian names probably didn't really begin until the 60s/70s I'd say.

There is another "way".. If he gets "caught" pants down with another woman besides his wife.. If it happens he can bid farewell to his position as PM..

But of course the chances of that happening is slim..

It is possible that someone will acting like puppet PM (like Goh Chok Tong) if Lee's son is not ready.

Singapore is very looking like NK in leadership change. LKY control the whole process and he will appoint his family member to assume the leadership position.

Of course, it is hard to predict anything after LKY died. US may not defend Singapore if Malaysia want to annex Singapore again.
