    Default Halimah contemplates Presidency

    You got to give her credit for coming out in this manner - giving the impression that it is a tough job. She was seconded to the Admin Service when she was in NTUC but was quietly posted back after a year or so due to competency issue. The lack of Malays in the elite service was a concern and it was hopped that she might make it but it was never to be. Now the Presidency. As people rightly point out - why the wayang.

    “Don’t Wayang Lah” – Netizens on Halimah Yacob “thinking about” running for presidency
    July 17, 20171051

    Netizens have trolled Madam Halimah Yacob, claiming that the Speaker of Parliament is acting and putting on a show of “thinking about” joining the presidential race, following her confirmation that she is eyeing the presidential election to be held this year.

    At the parliamentary debate on the Presidential Election (amendment) Bill in February this year, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Chan Chun Sing, accidentally referred to Madam Halimah as “Madam President” instead of “Madam Speaker”. Netizens who responded to Mr Chan’s slip then, wondered if it was a freudian one.

    Speaking after a community event in her Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC yesterday, Madam Halimah said:

    “I am thinking about it, of running for the presidency…The elected presidency is a very heavy responsibility and an important institution in Singapore, so it’s not something that one should take lightly… so it needs a bit of time to think. But I must say at this moment, I have a lot of duties I have to perform, as Speaker, as MP. These duties are also very dear and important to me.”

    Commentators online have responded sarcastically to Madam Halimah’s statement that she is consulting her family on whether she should join the presidential race, which has been reserved for members of the Malay community.

    I think it will be the best outcome. She will not allow her monkey relatives to turn the Istana into a wet market. Remember the Sinkie Idol Hadi something condo incident?

    Infact India is very proud that Halimah is Indian Origin Politician:
    Indian-origin politician to be Singapore’s first woman speaker

    The question is why Halimah disown her Indian Origin?
    Singapore Indian Society dare to comment?

    Indian-origin politician Halimah Yacob (58) is set to become the first woman Speaker of Singapore’s Parliament next week replacing Michael Palmer, who was forced to quit over his extra-marital affair.

    Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Tuesday said he would nominate Ms. Halimah as the next Speaker when the House sits on January 14, 2014.

    Ms. Halimah, a former labour lawyer, is a Member of Parliament from the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) and has extensive experience in the labour movement, social work and pre-school education. She would be resigning as Minister of State (MOS) at the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports on January 13 as office holders cannot be elected Speaker, said Mr. Lee in a statement.

    The Speaker’s post fell vacant when Mr. Palmer, also a PAP MP, resigned last month for his involvement in an extra-marital affair. Ms. Halimah would be confirmed as Speaker as PAP has an absolute majority in the 99-member house. Mr. Lee said he has briefed PAP MPs and received their full support on his intention to nominate Ms. Halimah to the position.

    Ms. Halimah, a mother of five, entered politics in 2001.

    This presidential election should be known as election for a Muslim president rather than a Malay president.

    Do you really think this matters?

    The PAP is just bent on getting any other likely candidates out of the EP picture.

    If PAP really values the minorities in the political scene...then why not also insist that the next PM be a non Chinese?

    Yeah, looks like it will follow Nathan's where candidates do not qualify. The 2 other candidates do not meet the financial hurdle.

    Ironic that she is an Indian and she is following the last Indian president. Go in by walkovers. This is really a Muslim Presidential candidate...not Malay candidate..the pap has made a farce out of the whole just because of preventing ah bock from getting in.

    Its all part of the grand PAP wayang la! Pretend to have a contest at the beginning but only i left standing based on eligibility and not ability!
    Why do you think she was pre-approved long time ago! Kee Chiu merely let slip his loose tongue on a matter that must have been discussed and decided secretly in the highest echelons of the PAP! The whole idea is to reserve this round for a Malay candidate to shoo away TCB and other would-be anti-establishment figures.

    indian muslim so what. Many politicians that championed malay rights in the region are non malay muslims. They are the 1 that like to stir anti chinese sentiments to advance their own agenda.

    as for 害你妈 malay or not will not be a reason of concern to the 69.9%.
