    Singapore's ruling party contends with new voting majority

    By Rujun Shen SINGAPORE, July 28 (Reuters) - - When Singapore celebrates its 50th year of independence on Aug. 9 and its older citizens eulogise the country's economic feats, its ruling party founded by the late Lee Kuan Yew faces an unprecedented wave of young voters who may not be as nostalgic.  For the first time, citizens born after the country's independence in 1965 will likely account for the majority of voters in a general election due to take place by January 2017. As of 2014, almost 54 percent of citizens above 20 were born in 1965 and later, compared with 46 percent born after independence in 2010. Singapore's voting age is 21.
