The High Court dismissed Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s constitutional challenge to the upcoming reserved Presidential Election. This comes after the AGC accused Dr Tan of being selfish for undermining multiracial representation and for wanting to run in the next election.
Dr Tan has until next Wednesday to file a notice of appeal and has not reached a conclusion yet.
Earlier, Dr Tan filed an application to challenge the government’s decision to count President Wee Kim Wee as Singapore’s first elected President. The introduction of a reserved Presidency has caused him to lose his chance in running for Presidency despite his intentions to do so.
Does this come as a surprise? Have we lost another hopeful candidate who can actually be our voice?
