Halimah Yacob announces bid for Elected Presidency

Mdm Halimah Yacob

As expected, Mdm Halimah Yacob has announced that she is leaving the People’s Action Party (PAP) to run for the Elected Presidency (EP), to be held this year.

Speaking at the sideline of a National Day Dinner for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC yesterday (6 Aug), she said that the reason why she took so long to arrive at the decision is because she was worried about the heavy responsibility and thus had to consider carefully.

I recognise that the position of the elected President has the tremendous capacity to do good for all Singaporeans and for Singapore. Hence, I wish to inform you that I will be contesting in the coming Presidential Election.

Mdm Halimah Yacob, who was a Member of Parliament for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC and Speaker of Parliament submitted her letter of resignation to the Prime Minister today (7 Aug), effective immediately.

No by-election will be called for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC, according to Minister Chan Chun Sing.

Multi-cornered Contest 

Mdm Halimah Yacob 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 Halimah 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 Halimah 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?

    If PEC also approved the 2 non-PAP candidates Mr Farid Khan and Mohamed Salleh Marican, I hope Mohamed Salleh will withdraw and did not submit on nomination day. Then it will be a 1 to 1 contest. Opposition camp votes will not be diluted.

    PAP has a think tank behind this. They will not take this risk unless Mr Farid Khan or Mohamed Salleh is a mole. To have 100% win, I think both will be disqualified.

    From the ground sentiment, PAP can feel many are unhappy. Hence, they will play it safe to disqualify all the others.

    PAP may planted another mole on nomination day by surprise.

    Halimah Yacob has finally succumbed to temptations. All her “thinking” and “pondering” were merely acts at faking modesty. The perks that go with being Madam President are too mouth-watering to resist.Taxpayers will be footing the bill for her new lifestyle in the Istana. Only halal food and utensils are allowed. In next year’s NDP, men in uniform must get use to saluting Madam President, a makcik in tudung.

    For us Chinese, Chinese muslim is Chinese.

    For us Chinese, if father is Chinese and mama is malay we are Chinese.

    Ever wonder why in Singapore there is need for this racial divide? Because the Chinese are too strong? No. The malays are too weak and need an india muslim to fake it so that they can get a “malay” president.

  • Nothing Burger:

    A by-election is required in the marshaling-yew tee constituency! This is all the more so because the minority mp chooses to resign from her job. She did not die in office and as such there is no reason not to call for a by-election.

    The election laws would be breached under the group representative constituency if the position is not filled by a by-election.

    In law-abiding Singapore, it is thus necessary to comply with the Rule of Law just like The Hague arbitration on the South China Sea.

    Not holding a by-elections would mean that the minority citizens of marshaling-yew tee are not served from now till 2020!

    It is only right that residents of marshiling-yew tee make a police report or a magistrate’s complaint if no by-elections is declared!

She is a party-groomed candidate, chosen surely by PM himself crucially. But is this in keeping with the spirit and functions of the Presidency, and not a “clash of interests”? PM and Cabinet choosing the President who will have to safeguard the nation against the same PM and Cabinet’s possible wrongful use of “reserves” and key state appointments, etc? Even if it’s workable, is it politically wise, as credibility is politically important? Of course, this wouldn’t be an issue if what many suspect were true, ie. that the “safe-guarding” is meant to function only against non-PAP governments thrown up at “freak” elections.

  • Agents of Changeeeeee:

    Strong Candidate:
    Halimah Yacob is such a qualified and strong candidate with the strong backing of Unions and PAP,she will surely beat all other candidates easily.
    No need to limits her apponents,let her compete with Dr Tan Cheng Bock.
    Her Victory will make Singaporean proud of her.

    cut the bullshit talk… might as well just say walk over…

    HANDS UP THOSE RETRENCHED PMETs who would decline a paycheck of over $million to kiss baby bottoms and cut ribbons.

    Preference would be given to those with NO accounting and finance expertise but politically correct of life history.

    You want the big fat pay of the President just say so…we understand. After all, like you, we are human too.

    No need to pretend that you are “thinking” and “considering”. No need to give a thousand and one reasons and excuses! No need to say you had to consult your family…..”Hey guys, you wanna go live in the Istana?”

    IOW don’t be a hypocrite!!!

    Does this woman have a choice ? She has been directed and ordered to wayang all the way to the empty president seat, takes order to Ensure she has a comfortable remaining life,
    What an idiot and a fool, this whole idea of reserving the next president for Malay only is the biggest insult to the Malay and she, claimed to be a Malay should not add further insult… sad that Singapore has come to this stage…Halimah should really balek kampu , still she may well be the next president of PAP, not the people’s elected president, that I think she knew and we all know. Good luck Halimah and hope you will not be the next Devan Nair..

    She will just be another silence puppet that shaking her legs without saying anything in the parliament, signing documents, cutting ribbons, waving on the pickup car during NDP and collecting millions…

  • Only Ext Forces can stop:

    Looks like as predicted by netizens , a walkover.

    No wonder one CBKIA announced madam president long long ago.

    Authoritarianism is what it is.

    It cannot survive any other way.

  • My Sperm is Great!:

    Actually, we can see that singaporeans don’t need and don’t want elections. It’s not something that really matters to them.

    More important to them is which place sells the cheapest most delicious laksa.
