  1. Tensions arise due to the different needs and interests that need to be addressed in a small country like Singapore.
  2. As Singapore’s population continues to grow, more and more land will be required for living spaces such as recreational and housing areas.
  3. Citizens may not always be able to come to an agreement on what is good for society.
  4. As the government considers citizen feedback in its decision-making, it has to make decisions based on the best interests of society.
  5. Prioritisation is needed, which may mean that not everyone’s interests could be addressed effectively.
  6. In doing so, the government may also not be able to meet all of the demands in society due to the limited amount of resources Singapore has.
