Wee Kim Wee is not Singapore’s first elected President?

Late President Wee Kim Wee

Deputy Attorney-General Hri Kumar said:

There has been a narrative since this application was filed…that there has somehow been a re-writing of history…that Wee Kim Wee has been deemed an elected president. (But) no one said he was an elected president…the government had to start the count somewhere and it gave its reasons for starting with Wee Kim Wee.

The nature of the advice was not disclosed or even discussed in Parliament. The Prime Minister started the count from Wee Kim Wee not because he was an elected president, but because he exercised the powers of the Elected President. It was a policy decision.

So, please remember Wee Kim Wee is not an elected President. Don’t later flip-flop to say he is the 1st Elected President. Now they say he is the first to exercise the powers of the Elected President (but he was not elected). LOL.

See how they can twist from he is the First Elected President to he is the first to exercise the powers of the Elected President? Well, 70% enjoy watching the circus.

  • Kim Jong Loong:

    Now it is crystal clear who is the SG’s first elected President! It’s definitely NOT Mr Wee Kim Wee.

    This ‘ownself confuse ownself’ situation is now about from which President should they start the count.

    We now hear from the [email protected] saying it’s the G which gave its reasons for starting the count from Mr Wee KW. But we heard from PM in parliament that the G received advice from A-G so the count starts from Mr Wee.

    So, which party is actually advising which party? If according to [email protected], it’s the G which decides, it means ‘ownself advice ownself’! Then why did PM say it’s A-G who has advised the G?

    And to think that Keechiu Chan still has the cheek to ask WP’s Sylvia in parliament if she’s suggesting that the A-G did not give the G the appropriate advice, or that the PM has not been truthful with the A-G’s advice?

    Oh man! Who is having problem with his integrity? Please advice, who should the laymen trust?

    Man am I confused… so “the Prime Minister started the count from Wee Kim Wee not because he was an elected president, but because he exercised the powers of the Elected President. It was a policy decision.”

    What was so different from the powers of earlier presidents? So the PM decides and yes I forgot he decide on everything and the cronies simply nod their heads!

    When will the 70% fools start to exercise their rights to throw PAP out.

    SG citizens are getting very vunerable. From this 200% PAP Appointed PLP Ku-nen-de-Ma, they need not be elected but can exercise executive power. Now you understand why they put so many paper generals CONTROLLING many SG arteries.

    Any elected Opposition Government can be boycotted and choked by them. I think it’s too late already.

    So the Hard Truth is finally revealed by DAG how the Coverment under Mai Hum has made the decision to count from Mr Wee KW instead of Mr Ong TC. So the lame reason is Mr Wee although Not Elected by the people but has exercised the Powers of an Elected President qualified to be an elected president. And the REAL and most important REASON of all is that the PAPigs were able to get Mr Wee ERECTED all day/night LOONG! HoLee shits! Hat off to Mai Hum and his sidekick HaraKiri PukiMar!

  • Hurry, Karma now!:

    English is an Art and not Scientific.

    Words allow to be twisted since it can be spoken Metaphorically , figuratively, tongue-in-cheek , in-tongue or under duress.

    Eg . Black is white because it is the darkest white.
    White is also Black because white is the lightest shade of Black.

    Whiter than white is scientifically an Oxymoron.

    But in English, it’s allowed citing it as metaphor.

    Many have made used of the flaws in English and become millionaires unethically, dishonestly and immorally but legally.

    What is legal need not be moral, nor ethical. Eg. Prostitution in geylang authorised centers is perfectly LEGAL. Gambling at MBS is perfectly LEGAL even if it breaks up your family or people jumped to death due to gambling debts.

    English is HACKED BY the rich , For the Rich.

    It’s a SIN.

    Just select the lot and make them exercise the power of an Elected MP, can right? can also be a Policy decision, right?

    If not, then this Policy is no good for the people, must change. If the Policy makers does not want to change it, then they are also no good for the people, must also change, right ?

    The Prime Minister started the count from Wee Kim Wee not because he was an elected president, but because he exercised the powers of the Elected President. It was a policy decision.

    There is a rumour saying PM Lee going to step down in 2018. He select Halimah because he does not want a President to check into the accounts of GIC and Temasek.. Both are control by him and his wife.

    (1) The President is to be elected by the citizens of Singapore
    in accordance with any law made by the Legislature.

Any person of the right mind can clearly distinguish between ‘An Elected President’ and a President, the first President to ‘Exercised the power of an elected President’ Shame on you, PAP, trying to deceive the citizens.

  • kf:

    And a great circus it will be. Just need to look through mainstream papers and TV since OTC’s time. The term they used in Chinese is called ‘min suen zong tong’. This term undoubtedly solidified the definition that the president must be elected by the people, not the parliament. If some advisor or DAG still wants to contest this, then he might as well bring the entire government to court for spreading fake news FOR YEARS. But someone mentioned WKW can be counted because he was elected by parliament right ? Government sees the wind and takes this kind of advice ?
    Now here’s the real question. If the court rules that the term cannot start counting from WKW but should be OTC, who pays all the legal charges ? Taxpayers’ money or advisor’s money ?

  • DAG violated his duty?:

    Is AGC a national institution constitutionally guaranteed to be independent and non partisan. Even if the appointments of AG and DAG are linked to the Govt, they are under solemn oath on their faith to defend the independent and nonpartisan status of the Institution? If this is the order, isn’t DAG is violating his sworn oath of office to ‘volunteered such public statement? Citizens have voiced earlier their concern over thd issue oc Conflict of Interest and Indranee tolf the Parliament that Conflict of Interest is of no concern on officers who have not be rated by fellow professionals as good, a statement which to many very establised and internationally endorsed outstanding professionals is just pure rubbish as Conflict of Interest relates to the character of the man and has nothing to do with his work performance. Anyway, would Indranee comment on DAG public comment and this is made while Dr Tan CB case is still under judicial consideration? Is this a Contempt of Court esp from a high officer of the system?

    Anyway is this the person who said that Ministers’ pay should not be reduced, while Gerald Yee was deliberating with PM select mmittee to review their pay shortly after last GE. His reason was if reduced, the Ministers would have no guts to deal with high paying MNC CEOs. Citizens wonder why millions should matter in msuch case and why Ministers should have deals with the MNC CEOs that the Papist has to voiced his concern. Is he the same person?

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    Whatever Wee Kim Wee was asked to perform in the interim before a President was Constitutionally elected, it cannot be equated with the functions of an elected President, irrespective of his designation by Parliament. For the very point of having an elected President has been that, without that mandate by the people by the vote, there can be no authoritative Presidential functioning. So, call what Wee was asked by Parliament to function as, he wasn’t functioning as “elected President”. And so, Parliament is not entitled now to start the count of elected Presidents with Wee on the ground that he served as elected President.

    A simple classification that is artifically complex. Singapore productivity has been low over the past years because the leaders themselves are not productive. All the efforts are to divert Singaporeans of their real problems in making decent living in their homeland.
