Halimah Yacob is ‘thinking’ of running for the Elected Presidency

Mdm Halimah Yacob

Despite the whole Singapore knowing that Mdm Halimah Yacob is going to be fielded by the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) as its preferred choice of Elected Presidential (EP) candidate, Mdm Yacob says she is still “thinking” about it.

Speaking to reporters after a community event at her Marsiling ward, Mdm Yacob said she has been asked this question many times and felt honored and humbled by the support, but she needed more time to consult with her family and colleagues further.

I am thinking about it, of running for the presidency… The elected presidency is a very heavy responsibility and an important institution in Singapore, so it’s not something that one should take lightly… so it needs a bit of time to think.

Coffee shop aunties and uncles have opined that Mdm Yacob can take all the time in the world to “think” about it, but 99.99999% for sure she will be fielded by the PAP come EP 2017.

Multi-cornered Contest 

Should Mdm Yacob runs for the EP, she is likely to go against 2 other non-PAP preferred candidates, 62-year-old Mr Farid Khan Kaim Khan, Chairman of Bourbon Offshore Asia Pacific [ LINK ], and 67-year-old Mohamed Salleh Marican, Chief Executive Officer of Second Chances Properties.

The 2 candidates technically do not qualify because Bourbon Offshore Asia, (a subsidiary of French multinational marine company Bourbon), has a shareholder equity of $415 million, while Second Chance Properties, which is listed on the main board of the Singapore Exchange since 2004, has shareholders’ equity of approximately $254.3 million – both short of the $500 million stipulated.

However, the Presidential Elections Committee (PEC) has the discretion to determine if candidates are eligible to run should they not meet the stringent criteria.

FamiLEE Feud Effect

It is unlikely that the PEC would disqualify one of the non-PAP candidate because that would result in a one-to-one fight, which may see Mdm Yacob losing considering the adverse effect/feelings on the Prime Minister’s recent “ownself judge ownself” performance in Parliament.

The PEC would likely allow both non-PAP candidates to qualify resulting in a 3-cornered fight to increase the chance of Mdm Yacob winning or disqualify both of them, guaranteeing a sure-win for the PAP’s preferred candidate.

President Has No Powers

In any case, coffee shop aunties and uncles are of the view that it really doesn’t matter who becomes the next President of Singapore because its only a ceremonial role and the President has no powers whatsoever, except to rubber-stamp, go on sponsored tours, shake hands and take photos.

What do you think?

    Stop pretending, Madam President. What so heavy responsibility and important institution, when you don’t need to do anything? Just diam diam when things happened. See no evil, heard no evil, speak no evil. Let the Parliament do the ownself no-need-to-check ownself.

    Just learn how to wave and shake hand. Most importantly, know how to plan your annual tours paid by taxpayers!!

    HY has no choice if her boss decides she has to do the dirty job of being Madam President. A Yes Woman taking time to “think” is bullshit as if she is allowed by her boss to do so. The PAP government needs a President who is compliant and not one like OTC who really defends the rights of the people. She is expected to guard the privileges of the PAP. PM Lee is pinning his hopes on her helping to win over the Malay voters in GE 2020.

    Yeah, on the spot, after the hilarious wayang show on Parliament, the other 2 candidates would be disqualified.
    Then harimau the preferred PAP candidate just take the chair lidat.
    If there is another Tony Tan hair raising effect that accidentally lose Election, LHL won’t be able to take it.
    There should be only 2 candidates, to avoid a repeat of only 0.5% Tony Tan’s win.
    Those people who want to spoil votes better think twice, vote the non PAP appointed one if there is contest.
    A President as a Dua Pek Kong for show no big deal.

    You can bet your bottom dollar there will be a 3-cornered fight to make it look as though there is real competition.

    The other 2 cansdidates will somehow qualify given that the Committee has the power to waive whatever requirements.

    By now you should all know how the pigs operate and not forgetting this whole exercise is a waste of taxpayers’ money.

    Think Most likely on the day of reckoning, only Mdm Halimau and the 2 non-PAPigs preferred candidates will put up their names to contest the PE in Sep 2017. The PEC(Puki Erections Committee) will then use the $500 million criteria to disqualify the 2 jokers. Therefore the PEC can declare No contest that SAVE a lot taxpayers’ money and effort! Mdm Halimau is installed as Mdm President to squat on the $millions seat at Istana aka House of Cards. Let’s move on.

    Actually pap also no need to b scared of the 2 non-pap candidates winning . Thats bcos if you examine what they have said they would do if elected are not much different from what pap past prez nathan n TT said when they were running for EP.

    All they said they want to do is basically to b prez for all Sgs regardless of race, language, religion , status blah blah blah . In other words, they are confining themselves to only ceremonial part of the EP role. They are totally silent on the 2nd key role of EP which is vitally imp bcos of the non transparency n accountability the pap govt has been managing the reserves n cpf savings .

    Those who dont care about the 2nd key role will have easy time as EP So if they dont give their commitment on this role, dare say they are only in for the easy money, status, prestige, pride, best of privileges that money cannot buy.

    Their privileges include eat the best n sleep in palace served by retinue of servants, entertained by the kings or prez of other countries when go visit their countries , best medical treatment n care for yourself n family , lst priority for everything u want, people paying obeisance to you , state funeral when die and ALL THESE FOR FREE PLUS MULTI MILLIONS TAX EXEMPTED INCOME N PENSIONS

    The only EP who took the 2nd key role seriously was OTC and the only previous EP candidate that pledged he would protect n ensure the reserves are in order was TJS.

    SGs should not vote anyone who jus want to do the mundane ceremonial part of the job.

  • Tips on decision:

    Before one files the paper for the EP election, one should consider whther one stands as Singaporean belong to ONE PEOPLE ONE NATION or on a racist platform which implies that when a racist President is electef his/her mind is MY RACE FIRST. Iue why this is not true, a need to have EP on a racial basis. Have Singaporeans found the past President including the present one has racial prejudice? If there is, why aren’t those penalised racially made a report? Amos,on 6 original charges but has one on ‘horrible’ removed while the rest are racial and religious, was ardently persecuted as an adult though legally a teen and not only that was considered to be as vile and dangerous surpassing a serial rapist murderer having him cuffed and leg chain shackled. If that can happen, any MP, Minister, President accused of such racist or religious mentality and action will undoubtedly get equal if not more rigourous legal treatment by our Constitutionally independent and nonpartisan Institutions with any Conflict of Interest even if they are affiliated or associated in any way to the accused brcause they are good men or women in their jobs so rationalized by SMOS Indranee. So why PAP is so paranoid with racialism that it has to amend the Constitution with ghe addition of GRC. umheard in any democratic Nations and nos bringinv racialism into EP? If PAP Govt has received such complain, why no action was taken? If they have not what are they so paranoidic about? Seriously if there is suspicion the citizenry should be informed as it is more destructive than terrorism. In fact if that is, so more should be done to gell the One People One Nation than to accentuate by introducing racism in GE (GRCs) and EP 2017 which is still legally contest regarding the time schedule. Perhaps PAP has more rational agenda. If that is the case, why not let the People know instead of maintaining opacity which leads to unnecessary speculations and defamation suit with ‘ sue until pents drop’ Syndrome as recently brought by WP Chief to the attention of the Parliament when it was deliberating the grevious accusation of honesty and abuse of power which unfortunately not raised by PAP MPs who are more interested in the house than the integrity and image of the Nation bureaucracy.
    The very fact race is attached to the EP, WHY pops up and more imptly does the Power there be does not believe in or subscribe to One People One Nation as we havd our children singing and reciting in schools. Are all the loud recitation and singing during the NDP Ceremony by the Cabinet and MPs and all the bureaucratic Chiefs are just wayang. If not why racialism is promoted instead of bersatu? There is still time to unwind such dangerous stupidity for nation sake & really put Nation loyalty above party…

    ask NOT what your family will do or “THINK” for you BUT what the PAP can do for you lah!!! hypocrisy was the last thought on my mind BUT….RCA comes to mind remember the Dog and the Gramophone???…listening to His Master’s Voice

  • goodness:

    if I could remember well enough I don’t think she ever handle corporate of $500 million category? even she ever worked under such company she definitely wouldn’t be a CEO.

    so, why is she qualify to be a candidate? just cos she is PS?

    so again, own self declare own self for winning the election voting.

    what a crap system we have and a bunch of stupid idiots (70% including new citizens) in this tiny little SIN.

    Mod: Some public and parliamentary appointments automatically qualifies, Parliamentary speaker being one of them.

    Malay PM?:
    Why don’t PAP allow Malay PM? I will sure vote for a malay PM, anything is better than Lee and HO monkeys!

    Agreed. I’d vote for a Malay PM. By the way, why an Indian minister cannot be the PM but rules are adjusted to elect a Malay President? Why is race still an issue?

  • Real Contest please:

    it is OK for her to run but let us have a real contest.
    Let the best man or woman of the land compete with her.No need to limit the contestants by race.
    Am sure she can win on her own merit and be proud of her herself.
    Not many Singaporean are convinced the need to limit the EP contest by race….

  • Contradiction law:

    This point illustrates why the President qualification is just plain nonsense.

    - Financial Skills. It’s either yes or no.
    If yes, every qualified candidate must have it. Financial skills cannot be substituted by high class time keeping skills or other skills.

    Obviously, financial skills is not needed. So it should not be there.

    The Presidential qualifications stink. It is a group of super elites defining rules so that only in-group super elites qualify. No other democratic country has this rule. Even USA President has no such elite qualifications.

    USA got an actor, who was the best President at disintegrating USSR without firing a single shot. These elitist qualifications would have kept him out.

  • Kick Them All Out:

    My $8 heart bypass:
    Whatever it is, it’s still a bloody waste of public money feeding these PAPigs parasites in the Istana, whether it’s Prata or Nasi lemak.

    Yes TRE is so right again in it’s analysis.
    Since the role of president now is so inconsequential, why give it to another greedy pap pig? Pick a poorer businessman to show the PAP some people power.
    The change will start from the EP election.

  • Greedy Evil Dishonorable Son:

    Deceit and wayang, the hallmark of PAP.
    These pigs learned them from US, on tax payers account.
    The US commercialises such political tactics into institutions as school of government.
    These paper scholars think they have one up after attending such schools, which is now bring down this country in it’s regional relationship with neighbouring countries and China.

  • Indian or Malay:

    “she needed more time to consult with her family and colleagues further”
    What she really needs to do is to consult her dead father and ask if okay to deny her Indian ancestry. Or have mama sign affidavit she was product of an other man, not the Indian papa.
