In Indonesia, political parties will woo voters by promising them otherworldly (and usually empty) promises. In Singapore, the ruling party threaten its own people to get votes.
Moreover, although the promises are often found to be false, the people in Indonesia still believes in them every time the election is coming. On the other hand, although to some extent the ruling party is performing quite well, somehow they need to resort to scare tactics again and again. It perhaps shows how Indonesians are a forgiving and forgetful people, while Singaporeans are a frightened ones — both the people and the ruling party.
