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.
