SINGAPORE : Change at the Top

November 27, 1990

Lee Kuan Yew, the unchallenged leader of Singapore for the last 31 years, finally steps down Wednesday in favor of his handpicked successor as prime minister, Goh Chok Tong.

With Lee expected to stay in the Cabinet as a senior minister, however, few expect that Goh will be completely free to chart a new course. He has said he prefers a more open, consultative style of government.

The 49-year-old technocrat has already said that the most likely candidate to succeed him is Lee's elder son, Trade and Industry Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
