I find it atrocious that Straits Times published a report like this!
No disrespect to S R Nathan but Singapore's first elected president is Ong Teng Cheong. He served from 1 September 1993 to 31 August 1999.
Not only are the editors incompetent, they treat Singaporeans like idiots!
Even if they intend to carry balls, this is not the way to do it.
Straits Times should not try to rewrite history!
