We have the opposition MP questioning whether the appointment was constitutional because of his age. After all, an Article in the Constitution said the AG must leave the office when he turns 60, if he had hold the post for some time before that. Then we have the government saying the appointment was in accordance with the Constitution, with even a precedent being mentioned in the form of Judge of Appeal Chao Hick Tin, who was 63 when appointed as Attorney-General for a two-year term. Govt said age does not matter, what matters is the suitability of the candidate.
All good and well, but do we see this happening to the average Singaporean?
