Singapore Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong says he may still have a role to play in the new government after he steps down next month.
Speaking to reporters (at a charity golf tournament) today (Sunday), Mr. Goh said his successor, Lee Hsien Loong, has asked him to stay in the cabinet after he hands over the reins of power.
He added that it will be up to the new prime minister, Singapore's third head of government, to decide what role he should play.
Mr. Goh announced Saturday he will step down August 12th and be replaced by his deputy, Mr. Lee.
Mr. Lee is the 52-year-old son of Lee Kuan Yew, the city-state's founding prime minister, who remains in the cabinet with the title of Senior Minister.
