“Sorry, Dr Tan Cheng Bock you are disqualified to stand in PE 2017”, says Minister Shanmugam
At a dialogue session on 15 September, a question was asked if the White Paper was directed at preventing certain individuals from running for the PE, Minister Shanmugam quoted my name.
He told the participants and singularly identified me although my name was not mentioned by the audience, that l cannot qualify under the new rule change.
Has he decided that the White Paper is law ahead of parliament debate? Is there some truth after all that the changes in the rules was to make sure l would not be eligible?
It would be a sad day for Singaporeans if a Constitutional change was made because of an individual.
