When Malays r exempted frm NS during the early days,the majority nvr shout about meritocracy.
When Malays can't serve on RSN vessels,the majority nvr shout about meritocracy.
When Malays r not allowed to enter sensitive camps/areas/posts,the majority nvr shout about meritocracy.
But when the majority can't contest a Presidential Election after 47yrs,suddenly the majority feels tat they r sidelined n feels tat Singapore no longer practice meritocracy.
She is not a controversial figure but then she allowed them to manipulate her... hence she is as guilty as them.
Then you as an ex PM why didn't you make the process not controversial. Are you sleep on the job, shaking leg getting paid?
A controversy suggests that there is a lot of disagreement with the way she became President. There isn't. Anyone with a brain knows that it was through the despicable manipulation of the Constitution.
You hit it hard, ESM Goh! MIW makes the policies/ system controversial and they refused to listen 👂 to the people and they do what they want!
Like that rewind the PE system to Appointed Presidency. Same same anyway!
If your party wasn't so paranoid and have a bit more faith in your own citizens most people would have love to vote for a lady from a minority race up on their own but the more you fear and the more you do the more counterproductive and worse you made things become.
Oh, so the office-holder being a nice person is enough to make a problematic office okay. So if Kim Jong Un is a really nice guy who pats puppies and plays with children, that makes dictatorship okay? It's very sad that from what I hear, she IS really a nice person. But her character sadly cannot save the real issue.
Because of your undemocratic decision, she became the centre of the whole controversy. The whole world is talking....very sad day for Singaporean.
I will be more willing to accept Halimah as our president if she campaign against Tan Cheng Bock or others and win. All we asking for is a fair PE.
Whoever in office, you want to the office holder to succeed. Do not be like the Americans especially the sore Democrats, liberals and leftists who are hell bent to bring down the Trump presidency. If the office holder succeeds, the country succeeds.
