Businessman announces bid for Malay-only Presidency

Mr Khan announcing his EP bid

Mr Farid Khan Kaim Khan, a Singaporean of Pakistani-Arab descent has announced his bid for the Elected Presidency (EP) this year.

The 62-year-old is of Pakistani descent and his wife is of Arabic decent, but he said that he and his family very much consider themselves part of the Malay community in Singapore.

Malays in the community hailed from different groups, such as the Javanese and Boyanese… I was born in the Malay village in Geylang Serai, the heart of the Malay community. And I adopted the Malay language, and when I studied in school, my second language was Malay… So, I’m very confident that I can be qualified as a Malay.

Mr Khan serves as Chairman of Bourbon Offshore Asia, a leading offshore oil & gas marine provider in the region, and founded Bumi Subsea, an undersea operation firm. He sits on the [email protected] Steering Committee – an initiative supported by the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) that aims to grow awareness about jobs in the maritime industry.

Announcing his bid for EP at a press conference, Mr Khan said that if he is elected, he will focus his efforts on tackling radicalism in the nation and on strengthening Singapore’s social fabric by helping the needy, helping to build trust between the various racial and religious groups in Singapore and by creating more jobs:

I wish to serve the nation which I feel capable of doing so to the best of my knowledge and ability.

First and foremost, I am very concerned about the growing threat of radicalism. If elected, I will work closely with the Government and various organisations to resolve this issue.

Second, I would like to strengthen the trust among the people regardless of race and religion.

Third, let us enhance our efforts in helping the needy, including troubled youth, to strengthen our social fabric.

Fourth, let us enhance our prosperity by creating more opportunities, including jobs from the maritime sector and to other sectors of the economy.

Fifth, let us strengthen our families as the building blocks of our society.

Let us build this nation together to create a united, just and compassionate society.

Despite Mr Khan’s passion to serve, technically he does not qualify because his Bourbon Offshore Asia only has a shareholder equity of S$400 million, $100 million short of the $500 million needed to qualify for EP.

    Look like there are no real malay but only fake malays posing as Malay can come forward to contest the reserved EP due to that high %500m clause.

    Does it not show pap is not really serious to have a reserved EP for malay. It is jus a pretext to prevent TCB OR TJS from contesting for EP

    If I am a Malay, I will feel damn insulted by the reserved EP n worse if the slate of candidates are all fake malay .

    Malays should boycott the reserved EP n show their middle finger to the pap leeders for making malays look bad.

    What Farid needs to do is to ask the Bourbon Group Board to increase the paid-up capital of Bourbon Offshore Asia to at least $500M before he submits his application to run for EP. This should be reflected in Bourbon Offshore Asia’s audited accounts. Bourbon Group is very large so putting another $100M into Bourbon Offshore Asia is “peanuts”.

  • cheating ways:

    If the PAP finds he is likely to make a fool of himself or is a clown, or will split the votes of the opposition camp, they will say yes, he qualifies both as a Malay as well as the necessary specified experience.

    For those uninformed or foreign observers, the experience specifications were specified arbitrarily by the PAP to place hurdles in order to keep potential Opposition candidates out, since top Public Servants or Civil Servants are all invariably PAP (or they will lose their job and million-dollar salaries)

    Now, if they think he is likely to defeat the PAP candidate, the PAP will say no way he qualifies as a Malay. Don’t we know their hallmark cheating ways by now?

    To qualify for the coming pe, candidate must pass 1)malay community test 2)$500 million limit. Two candidates had applied, however they seem don’t meet both requirements. It looks like the final decision would be decided by the $500 million limit. The malay community test would take 2nd fiddle, and easily mounted. Maybe these two candidates are to foil or pull wools over our eyes.

    so does Halimah meets the $500 million criteria??

    Halimah Binti Yacob (Jawi: حاليمه بنت ياچوب; born 23 August 1954) is a Singaporean politician[1] of Indian descent[2]. A member of the country’s governing People’s Action Party (PAP), she is currently the ninth Speaker of Parliament,[3] having assumed office on 14 January 2013. She is the first woman to hold this post in the Republic’s history. She is the third consecutive Speaker belonging to a minority race, after Abdullah Tarmugi and Michael Palmer.[4] She also served as Minister of State at the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports from 2011 to 2013. She has been a Member of Parliament (MP) representing the Jurong Group Representation Constituency between 2001 and 2015 and Marsiling-Yew Tee Group Representation Constituency since 2015.

    Halimah Yacob was educated at Singapore Chinese Girls’ School and Tanjong Katong Girls’ School, before going on to the University of Singapore where she completed an LLB (Hons) degree in 1978. She was called to the Singapore Bar in 1981. In 2001, she completed an LLM degree at the National University of Singapore, and was conferred honorary Doctor of Laws degree from NUS on 7 July 2016.

    Political career

    Halimah entered politics in 2001 when she was elected as an MP for the Jurong Group Representation Constituency (GRC).

    Following the 2011 general election, Halimah was made a Minister of State at the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports.

    Halimah has also served as the Chair of the Jurong Town Council.

    Halimah has been actively involved in the Malay community. For example, she contributes to the Malay Knowledge-Based Economy Advisory Committee, which was formed to better integrate the Malay community into the knowledge-based economy. In recognition of her contributions, she was conferred the Berita Harian/McDonald’s Achiever of the Year Award in 2001[6] and the “Her World Woman of the Year Award” in 2003.[7] She also speaks out actively against radical Islam in particularly condemning and disassociating from the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.[8]
    Speaker of Parliament

    On 8 January 2013, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong nominated Halimah Yacob to succeed former Speaker Michael Palmer. She was fully supported by all the MPs of the ruling People’s Action Party and all the opposition Workers Party and the sole Singapore Peoples Party NCMP.[4] She was elected Speaker of Parliament on 14 January 2013.

    Halimah has served at the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) as the Deputy Secretary General, Director of the Legal Services Department and Director of the Women’s Development Secretariat. She has also served as the Executive Secretary of the United Workers of…

  • Question of identity:

    For such a post like Presidency and PAP seems to hinge on racial basis and that means is and ” considered very much is’ has run vastly different connotation. But if the Court can rule that Parliament has a right to say what they like and should be followed, it seems that any thing will do as long as Parliament says yea.

    Like you say, if a Chinese boy brought up by a Malay family, become a Muslim and followed the adopted parents tradition, then he should also be considerdd very much a Malay.

    Certainly to the Malay community this is utter rubbish.
    Presidency based on race is utterly disuniting and utter nonsensible. Constitution defines a citizen with rights regardless of race, political, cultural or social affiliation, wealth, religion. This has been the key to Singaporean multiracial harmony and success as one people and one nation. To say otherwise is treason meaning destructive to the national interest.Such simple logic seems to have failed in the minds of our multimillion billionaires political leader.

    The Presidency of Singapore is a joke. How did Singapore arrive to such a contemptuous state?

    Input from a foreign observer:
    As a foreigner following this comical satirical spectacle, one cannot help but to end up with the impression that the Institution of the President of Singapore seemed to be some kind of quirky joke.

    I am amazed as to how the Institution of the President could be allowed to be decided or arbitrarily changed by a certain group of people at whims and fancies. More bewildering, when the arguments seemed to be based on some flimsy logic, even hilarious or suspect.

    Can anyone make sense of such confusing and comical constantly arbitrary changing specifications of the institution of the President of Singapore?

    A nominated President one election, an Elected President next election, a Malay President this time, an Indian President another time. Or, no it is not a Malay’s turn yet. Or no you have to start counting from which past President and not another. No rules, no law. This has to be simply befuddling, to say the least.

But Pakistanis do not want to be considered “Indian” so the compromise is to specify their race as “Pakistani”. Must be the same from those from Bangladesh. When the PAP is involved stupidity and silliness have no bounds.

    his last name KHAN is obviously speaking for itself that he is of an Indian Origin,
    Merican also Indian, Halimah also Indian Muslim, so just make it clear tat this is a for muslim candidate la…

    all of those candidate have malay mixed but of indian origin, so might as well stop confusing the public

    cold blooded SG politicians: Just imagine if ICA allow filipino to put as malay , they they will qualify for subsidies that are meant for malays…do we want that?

    ilipina and malays are of the same polynesian roots, ,it is religion that scatters them apart Other than that they are the same

    Habis Lah!:
    Pakistan now have more reasons to be closer to Singapore now. Lets migrate over and show the Indians! Imagine… one day, your future gen could be POS. By the way, isn’t Pakistan a big ally to the the axis of evil? Osama bin Laden was hiding there.

    in actual FACT Pakistani are forgotten Indians and Bangladeshis is unwated by Paki and Indians . In a netshell gentically they are one but politically and religiously divided
