Presidential Election 2017

Presently for the public sector, there are two eligible candidates – Yaacob Ibrahim and Abdullah Tarmugi, which is similar to Tan Yuanyan, Hardi Firman and Leon Quek. Yaacob Ibrahim has declared that he is not interested, even though the retirement is looming near. Abdullah Tarmugi and Hardi Firman said he is unlikely to run in this election. But for that case, Masagos Zulkilfi will never bother to think about running for presidency.

Another possible candidate is the Singapore’s non-resident Ambassador to Kuwait and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Zainul Abidin Rasheed, who is the Indian-Muslim CEO of Mendaki from 1990 to 1993. He served as the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Senior Minister of State from 2004 to 2011, where he lost his seat in Aljunied GRC, in 2011. In addition, it was being replaced by Kahar Hassan (Kaki Bukit) and Murali Pillai (Eunos) for Aljunied GRC. Ashok Kumar Mirpuri could be a potential candidate but he has no plan to go for the presidency.

Though former Senior Minister of State Zainul Abidin may not meet the requirement of 1.11a for holding the office of 3 years or more, Zainul Abidin has assumed their Member of Parliament and Minister premiership from 1997 to 2011, even though he is in Malay community for Cheng San and Aljunied GRC, both North East CDC partnerships respectively. This is also quite similar to Ahmad Magad. which is in Pasir Ris GRC and Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC.

Additionally, retiring candidates like Khaw Boon Wan, Denise Phua, Lui Tuck Yew and Lily Neo may seem to express their interest of running for the presidential election 2017. Both of them seems not interested, even though the presidential election (Writ of Election) is too near.

Another presidential candidate is Bahren Shaari, although he has no intention to run for the presidential election (which is like Jaca and Almaty in Kazakhstan). Bahren Shaari has been appointed as the Council of Presidential Advisers and he was appointed CEO of Bank of Singapore in February 2015. The Presidential Elections Committee may decide to approve his suggestion and allow him to take part in the presidential election, if he decides to take part.

The strange candidate that can see is Shafie Shamsuddin, who has served as CEO of Carrefour in Singapore and Malaysia. He is currently, the president and CEO of PT Trans Retail (Carrefour Indonesia). Shafie Shamsuddin was named the Outstanding Chief/Senior Executive (Overseas) of the Year at the 2016 Singapore Business Awards. In 2016, Singapore’s Government Investment Corporation (GIC) invested 5.2 trillion rupiah (SGD$387 million) for a 17% stake in PT Trans Retail. It has yet to be ascertained if PT Trans Retail wants to meet the appeal requirement.

A good potential candidate is Halimah Yacob. She is expressing interest of running for the presidential election, even though she is in Bukit Batok East from 2001 to 2015 and Marsiling from 2015 to present time.

Reserved election for Presidential Election

The reserved election has been known to the constant review. The Indian and European (Eurasian) are always been omitted from the 2017 presidential election, neither the way of 2011’s style of SNO Rooms “Tony Tan, and the 3 Tan’s”. So the next presidential election has been categorised into Malays, to be more friendly. So there is only one back-up candidate, Mr Neo Tick Watt should Malays do not emerge into the potential successor.

The Donald Trump policy

The Donald Trump has been known to be the future President, after some votes has been given to him. For that matter, Tony Tan and Tan Cheng Bock had announced they will not be contesting after Donald Trump had won the presidential election 2016.

Because Luqman Hakim had went to other places, Tan Kin Lian will not be contesting.

For Tan Jee Say, it may not be enough to boost the citizenship of Singapore – of having $230 million. A blockage of Facebook meant that he will not be contesting. A new tie-up of having $300 million, was proposed and implemented.

The strictness of the presidential election candidates in 1999 and 2005 has decided to make it walkover.

PAP Internet Brigade

From a 2007 article in The Straits Times:

The People’s Action Party (PAP) is mounting a quiet counter-insurgency against its online critics.

It has members going into Internet forums and blogs to rebut anti-establishment views and putting up postings anonymously.

According to The Online Citizen:

The 50 Cent Party are the Internet commentators employed by the government of the People’s Republic of China or the Communist Party.

Their key function was to post comments on various Internet message boards, expressing a favourable opinion towards party policies, in an attempt to shape and sway public opinion.

[In Singapore], the counter-insurgency group is popularly known as the “Internet Brigade” or “IB” for short.

The man behind the PAP Internet Brigade is self-styled “moderate” Singaporean Jason Chua Chin Seng.

While the PAP Internet Brigade responds quickly to opportunities to denigrate the opposition, PM Lee Hsien Loong has been known to block less-than-glowing comments from being posted on his Facebook page (which, incidentally, brings to mind PM Lee talking at length about “Batman, Superman, Tarzan, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” during an #AskPMLee QnA, instead of providing “solid answers” to hard questions).

PM Lee once said that he stays positive online by being “flame-proof.” Perhaps it is this same quality which allows him to ignore the severity of the Singapore government’s long history of authoritarian rule.

If the PM can block or ignore less-than-savoury comments, there’s no reason why the rest of us shouldn’t feel free to block and/or ignore aggressive cyber-bullying types of online comments, whether they’re written by PAP IB’s or members of the public who have a different view.

How Are We Related – In Politicians?

People’s Action Party:

  • Lee Kuan Yew
  • Toh Chin Chye
  • Goh Keng Swee
  • S. Rajaratnam
  • Ong Teng Cheong
  • Goh Chok Tong
  • Lee Hsien Loong
  • Tony Tan Keng Yam
  • S. Jayakumar
  • Wong Kan Seng
  • Teo Chee Hean
  • Tharman Shanmugaratnam

Workers’ Party:

  • Low Thia Khiang

Singapore People’s Party:

  • Chiam See Tong
Actually, the main reason why we chose Tony Tan Keng Yam which was older than Lee Hsien Loong was criticised in 1995. He is the one who can be trusted, until the resignation and of which he became a Deputy Prime Minister. Later on, S Jayakumar took over who was born in 1940 and Wong Kan Seng who was born in 1946. Both of which he became Deputy Prime Ministers in 2004 and 2005 respectively. He resurrected the insurgence and finally went over to Teo Chee Hean who was born in 1952, and admitted into the Deputy Prime Minister in 2009. Tharman Shanmugaratnam finally took the lead of which Lee Hsien Loong can trust, and was born in 1957.

Party Against People (That’s a Joke)

Originally, I decided to put inside the Wikia called Uncyclopedia. Then it was deleted. So I can use again.

The Party Against People (abbrev: PAP) has been Singapore’s ruling political party since 1959. It is the major party in Singapore, while there is another party that does not have as much power in the parliament, which is the Workers’ Party.

Since the 1963 general elections, the PAP has dominated Singapore’s parliamentary democracy and has been central to the city-state’s rapid political, social, and economic development.[3] However, it has been criticised for the passing of laws that suppress free speech and other civil liberties.[4][5] Another proof of its suppression of freedom of speech is how it got the Ministry of Health and Tan Tock Seng Hospital for firing Roy Ngerng because he had spoken against the Party Against People’s government ruling of CPF. If I get arrested for editing this article, this shows that the government of Singapore is nothing but a fascist regime that should be wiped off the Earth. Even Nazi Germany did a better job at handling their country before the war. DOWN WITH THE FASCISTS, DOWN WITH THE TYRANTS, LONG LIVE THE PEOPLE, LONG LIVE EQUALITY, LONG LIVE SOCIALISM! URA!

Dear Singaporeans, in 2016, make the right choice and vote for Opposition. Only then will the tyranny of Lee Hsien Loong and his cronies will end. For those who still insist on supporting the PAP, believing that they will provide a blessing to your life, why do you think that people are standing up to them. Why now? Why not before. Think about the foreigners who will be taking over our jobs, think of how little space the country will have left after foreigners take over, think of how you have to work to DEATH just to support yourself, think of whether the politicians deserve millions of dollars worth of tax-payers money for “leading the country”. Well, I guess that is all. Stay strong, keep calm and protest! I love you, Singapore!
