Singapore: According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office on Sunday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong will be on leave for about a week from Monday (June 13) to June 19.

During his absence, Treasury Minister Lawrence Wong will act as acting prime minister.

Lee said in a Facebook post on Sunday night that he would spend his vacation in Singapore. He will use that time to read and explore the country.

“I’ll catch up with my reading and go to #jalanjalan from time to time. I’ll update if I come across something interesting,” Lee said.

On Monday, Mr. Wong will also be promoted to Deputy Prime Minister and will hold both portfolios at the same time.

In April, Mr. Wong was nominated as the leader of the People’s Action Party (PAP) 4th generation or 4G team, paving the way for Singapore’s next prime minister.
