HO CHING WEARS SANDALS TO PRESIDENT TONY TAN'S FAREWELL PARTY, TOTAL LACK OF RESPECT?

I don't like President Tony Tan but it is shocking that the Prime Minister's wife will show him such disrespect by wearing sandals to his farewell ceremony. Is this event not a proper serious event? You see all the other dignitaries wear formal clothes except for Ho Ching. Even her husband PM Lee wear formal and proper shoes. Why does she have this exemption to wear sandals to such serious events?

CHEE SOON JUAN: WELCOME TO THE DELUSIONAL WORLD OF THE ELECTED PRESIDENCY!

Singapore Democratic Party's Chee Soon Juan penned an opinion piece on what he thinks is a "delusional world" of the Elected Presidency. He outlined Mr Ong Teng Cheong's efforts to check on the government (but to no avail), and how candidates after him have to be "approved by the government".

SDP CALLS FOR PRESIDENT TONY TAN TO REVOKE AG LUCIEN WONG'S APPOINTMENT

SDP has written to President Tony Tan in asking him to revoke AG Lucien Wong's appointment. This is in light of the AGC's reply that it will not look into allegations of abuse of power by PM Lee. It described this as hypocritical given that the AGC wants to look into Li Shengwu's private Facebook posting.

ELECTED PRESIDENCY IS A JOKE & TWISTED SCHEME TO BAN NON-ELITES FROM QUALIFYING

If the govt wins 70% of the popular vote, while the president won only 35%, who would have the more legitimate claim to possessing the moral authority to act on citizens' behalf?

Why should a president who only had 35% support possess power to check on a govt elected by 70% of the people?

With the changes, the Elected President scheme has become a bit of a joke, really. It is nothing more than an Ivory Tower club reserved only for selected elites who twist and turn the scheme in such contortions that it has banned everyone else, except the very elite of the elites, from qualifying.

In short, it has no relevance to the average citizen at all.

NEXT SG PRESIDENT BY SEPTEMBER THIS YEAR

The next President of Singapore have been slated for Malay candidates, and if contested, we will see a campaign between Malay Presidential candidates for possibly the first time in Singapore history. President Tony Tan's term ends on 31 August this year, it will be an interesting next few months as we will see who the Government will roll out as their selected President. Judging from their criteria, and by the fact that the next President is from a minority, we may not even see a real contest.

PRESIDENT TONY TAN SHOWS HIS TRUE COLOURS, EXPRESS SUPPORT FOR PAP'S ELECTED PRESIDENCY

The puppet PAP President Tony Tan showed his true colours today when he spoke out in favour of the PAP's proposed constitutional amendment to the Elected Presidency. How come he can influence the Parliament on a matter of the government? Or maybe that limitation does not apply when he speaks out to support the PAP?

DID SINGAPOREANS ELECT TONY TAN BASED ON HIS PAPER QUALIFICATIONS?

Looking at our current president Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, I personally find it rather difficult for to recall the things he has done for Singapore. In fact, he has very little face time and speech time in the mass media, compared to a certain person from a certain political party, whose face won’t stop showing up.

WILL DAFT S'POREANS CONTINUE VOTING FOR KFC PRESIDENT TONY TAN?

The next Election is for the Singapore President. The fact that PAP's sponsored Tony Tan got only 35% of the votes at the last Presidential Elections speaks for itself. Tony Tan is likely to go into history as the least favoured SG Elected President with only 35% of Singaporeans voting for him. What a disgrace! Will PAP dare to go into the next Presidential Election, sponsoring a preferred candidate to face another more popular candidate?
