HALIMAH YACOB EXPOSED AS INDIAN MUSLIM, CAN SHE RUN FOR MALAY PRESIDENCY?

Take Mdm Halimah for example, she is actually not a Malay as her father is of Indian origin. This was disclosed in an ST article in 2013 when Halimah was selected to be the new Speaker of Parliament after the former one, Michael Palmer, resigned from politics due to his marital affair with a PA woman. In the article, it mentioned: "Her (Halimah's) Indian-Muslim father was a watchman who died when she was eight years old. So, what all this means is that in the coming Presidential Election which is reserved for the Malay community, a non-Malay person who is a Muslim can also contest. If Halimah, an Indian Muslim qualifies as part of the Malay community, then a Chinese Muslim, for example, can qualify too.

PAP WOMEN MINISTERS VOUCH FOR MURALI, BUT DR CHEE IS STILL BETTER!

Dr Chee lives in a three room flat. He is the kind of person who well understands through first hand experience, the daily grind of the common folk. Mr Murali is a successful lawyer. He is the kind of person who better understands what it is like to be successful and to be an elite in this country. Who will better understand the concerns of the Bukit Batok common folk? Dr Chee who lives their lives or Mr Murali who does not? Grace Fu lambasts Dr Chee for not holding a full time job for a long time and then questions his relevant work experience. However, between Dr Chee and Mr Murali, Dr Chee's variety of work experiences is actually richer and more relevant to an MP's duties as compared to Mr Murali's. Unlike Mr Murali who can only claim expertise in matters of law in parliament, Dr Chee has given talks to international audiences and written books and papers published by leading newspapers and magazines in a variety of topics including economics, politics, law, democracy and so on.

HALIMAH YACOB SHOULD JOIN OPPOSITION SO SHES CAN SPEAK OUT MORE FREELY

One of my Malay friend lamented that ever since the Hijab incident happened and the shutting down of the Facebook Day of World Hijab Day by MDA (Click on http://therealsingapore.com/content/world-hijab-day-singapore-facebook-page-shut-down-authorities), she wished that her heroine Halimah Yacob could say or speak out against her boss, PM Lee. This Malay friend used to know Halimah Yacob back in her NTUC union days when Halimah was a young union worker. Sometimes, when Singaporeans are retrenched and meet her at the Meet-the-MP session, she will always try to forward their CV to NTUC Unions and Co-operatives to help them get a better job etc.

Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob today (Feb 15) said the wonderful work of many Malay-Muslim organisations should be acknowledged.

Madam Halimah said: “This matter is under police investigation, so I think we should leave it to the police until they complete their investigation. “My heart goes out to the children, and I hope that their interests will be taken care of, and I am sure that the MSF will come in to take care of their interests. “But I also want to say that many of our Malay-Muslim organisations are really doing wonderful work and we should also acknowledge that.
