PAP LOGIC: PRESIDENT WEE KIM WEE WAS ELECTED BY PARLIAMENT, NOT APPOINTED?

Apparently in agreement with the Attorney-General Chamber (AGC), Justice Loh said: “From the perspective of ensuring multi-racial representation in the Presidency in view of the President’s symbolic role, it makes no difference whether the President was elected by the electorate or by Parliament….” (Source: CNA 7 July 2017).

Did anybody notice that instead of saying “appointed by the Government”, the term “elected by Parliament” is used to distinguish it from “elected by the electorate”? So President Wee Kim Wee was “elected by Parliament” and not merely “appointed by the Government.” So you see that’s their logic.
