In the end, Halimah Yacob – like SR Nathan and Tony Tan before her – will just fade into a silent president. Don’t expect that she will be vocal or questioning or even be too public.
This govt doesn’t like alternative power centers. They were aghast when Ong Teng Cheong even dared to question them.
They didn’t go through all this trouble to install her as president so that she can be a check on them. If you think they did, you must be quite dumb.
