Following Malaysia's former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamed-led coalition’s win in the Malaysian General Election on 9 May 2018,  Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has said that Singapore has vested interest in Malaysia's stability and prosperity and looks forward to developing an "equally constructive relationship" with the next Malaysian leadership.
Wishing Malaysia all the best in its political development, PM Lee in a Facebook post wrote, “Singapore has enjoyed good relations and close cooperation with Malaysia for many years, with successive Malaysian leaders. We look forward to developing an equally constructive relationship with the next Malaysian government, and to work with it to take our bilateral ties forward and benefit both our peoples."

Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Social Policies Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam also wrote a Facebook post calling the result of the election as a vote for change.  
He said it was a clear vote for change in Malaysia. “And it was across the board - Malays, Chinese, Indians and even the Dayaks in Sarawak. Wish Malaysia well, and hope we continue to work together for mutual good of our people," said DPM Tharman
Minister for Trade and Industry Mr Chan Chun Sing also weighed in. On the sidelines of a visit to a food manufacturer, he said that Singapore will work with the Malaysian government in various areas. "When the Malaysia government is formed, we will certainly reach out to the Malaysian government as we have done always in the past to discuss a range of projects that impact both bilaterally and multilaterally," he said.
