Let's Vote With Integrity For Integrity!

The President of Singapore!

According to the Law Minister of Singapore, we are voting for a Man of Influence who sometimes cannot speak without the permission of the Cabinet [Link] and [Link].

I am confused.

And the Man of Influence will be one of the following Tan (in alphabetical order):
  • Cheng Bok
  • Jee Say
  • Kin Lian
  • Tony
Unlike previously, the PAP is not endorsing anyone (openly) at the moment. However, the towkays in Clan Associations and Union Chiefs under NTUC are openly endorsing Tony Tan. Of all the unions, I'm most surprised that the Teachers' Union is supporting Tony Tan. "Singapore Teachers' Union general secretary, Edwin Lye, said: "Given Dr Tony Tan's vast experience in holding public office as well as his experience in the private sector, we think he's the best person for the job and he would make a credible Elected President." [Link]

Teachers are moulders of dreams. They are moral compasses that their students look up to. Through them will come the new leaders of Singapore! As much as their Union general secretary has endorsed Tony Tan, I would earnestly urge teachers to know more about Tony Tan before blindly casting their vote just because Edwin said so.

Does Edwin Lye and those in MOE know about:
  1. The Great Cheng San Escape [Link]
  2. Case Against Tang Liang Hong [Link] and [Link]
  3. The 12-year deferment of Precious Patrick who served NS in air-con comfort [Link] and [Link]
Though the "Presidential Election Committee (PEC) said it is satisfied the four are "men of integrity, good character and reputation", fulfilling Article 19(2)(e) of the Constitution." [Link], some may have doubts.

To each, his/her own.

You are confused. You are not the only one. This man must have studied too much of the law of confusion in many of the things he spoke on lately.

And they say that Singaporeans are getting a clearer picture of the powers and responsibilities of the Elected President, after staging the forums and explanations.

I beg to differ. They say that if you stir a pool of shit, more bubbles will rise and the stink will get worse. This situation is one perfect example.

Whatever lah, I am voting for change.

PAP is quietly confident that TT will secure at least 30+ % votes from die hard PAP supporters while the remaining votes will be split amongst the other 3 Tans.

To those associations and unions who are supporting TT, may I asked: If TT was not elected to be the President, are all of you going to shy away from the person who is elected?

In the last election, 40% vote for the Alternate Party and 60% for PAP. Hence, in this PE, will 60% continue to support the 3-PAP linked candidate and will 40% who support the Alternate Party continue to support the non-PAP linked candidate? Who will be elected?

Dear Fish
Agree with you except the following paragraph;

"Teachers are moulders of dreams. They are moral compasses that their students look up to. Through them will come the new leaders of Singapore!"

Singapore's leaders are chosen in "by-invitation-only tea parties". A process with no transparency and accountability.

Teachers' job is to manufacture "non-thinking workers/voters" with an expiry date of around 40 years old.

The elite students attend elite school and have elite tutors at home. They know they are destined for leadership. No need teachers to mould them. Going to school is just to network with other elites.

Vote with integrity for integrity?

I guess he knows 60% do not even know what integrity means. Giving handouts to voters for votes is integrity?

I rest my case as I am no lawyer.

It will be interesting to see if he dare to get MINDEF to endorse his presidency election. Or probably, it may be shameful to do so given his son unflattering escaped from doing proper NS when the father exploited Singaporeans trust of his Defence minister post then.

It is so sickening to see TT's poster appear everywhere now with nonsense title "Confidence for the future". Let us ask TT "Whose future are you talking about ? PAP's future ?"

EVerytime I see his face, he make me puke.
