Dr Tan Cheng Bock stands by his decision to appeal against the dismissal of his constitutional challenge: "my lawyers have advised that the Judge may have misconstrued the relevant Constitutional provisions.

TAN CHENG BOCK APPEALS AGAINST HIGH COURT'S DECISION ON PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Dr Tan Cheng Bock has decided to appeal against the High Court for dismissing his application to contest the legitimacy of the upcoming Presidential Election. Despite having intentions to run for Presidency, he was not considered eligible due to amendments to the Constitution and the introduction of the reserved presidency.

DR TAN CHENG BOCK FILES HIGH COURT MOTION AGAINST WEE KIM WEE AS 1ST ELECTED PRESIDENT
