How many on death row or hangings is not an election issue, not just the recent elections, but all past elections. If I remember correctly, no PAP MPs had ever even raised such issues in Parliament. So I think for many voters, maybe most would also treat these info, even if available in whatever form, more of curiosity than concern. Because, after all, it is cost of living and livelihood issues that matter most to them. And they voted opposition MPs in hoping that these MPs will raise and fight these issues for them, not so much as on issues of curiosity. In fact many would like to have strict and severe laws to punish those who commit serious crimes so that we can have a peaceful and safe place to work and live, something which is not a given in some countries.
