SINGAPOREANS HAVE THIS WOMAN TO THANK FOR PUTTING HALIMAH IN PRESIDENT’S SEAT
Singaporeans of all races, regardless of whether they are supportive or not of the reserved "election", can now universally thank one woman and her "sidekick" for putting Madam Halimah Yacob into the president's seat.
Praising this woman's contributions to the nation, one netizen wrote of her achievement:
"If not for you, Madam President would not have a chance to be Speaker of Parliament, and she wouldn't have qualified to be our 1st malay-muslim woman president!"
"On behalf of all samsters and sinkies, I would like to thank Laura Ong and her sidekick, Michael Palmer, for their huge contributions to Singapore," he wrote.
