Everyone is now visibly upset with the Presidential walkover but I am more upset with the passive nature of our malay candidates. Apart from Salleh Marican and Farid Khan who did not make the cut, there were high profile business persons who automatically qualified like Bank Of Singapore CEO Bahren Shaari and the CEO of PT Trans Retail Shafie Shamsuddin. Why did they not stand up and be counted for our Malay community and stop this farce of an election walkover?
Bank of Singapore chief executive officer Bahren Shaari, 54, has not ruled out running for president, he said in response to queries from the media. However, he emphasized that he is currently focused on his job.
