    Sure or not, Chuan Jin? Can you really "do your best and more"? Please dont promise what you cant deliver!
    "And more" refers to overtime pay.

    "And more" is a message to his boss that if his best wasn't enough in the past, he would do more to get back into his good books.

    Minister for Social and Family Development Tan Chuan-Jin will be the Speaker of Parliament with effect from next Monday (11 September).

    Tan, 48, who will step down from his ministerial post, was nominated for the role by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Previous Speaker Halimah Yacob resigned from her political and party posts on 7 August to contest in the upcoming Presidential Election this month. A Speaker of Parliament cannot be elected from members who are office holders.

    Lee said it was “not easy” to find a replacement for Halimah, but added that Tan had the “temperament and personality for this role”. In a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday (5 September), Lee wrote, “I first discussed this with Chuan-Jin after Mdm Halimah Yacob told me she was resigning to run for President…While Chuan-Jin stood out as the best choice, it was a very difficult decision to nominate him, as it meant losing an effective activist at MSF (Ministry for Social and Family Development) Singapore.”

    Tan also commented on his new role in a post on his Facebook page on the same day. He paid tribute to past Speakers including E.W Barker, Tan Soo Khoon and Halimah, saying that they have served to the best of their ability and in their own unique ways.

    “Good ideas can come from both sides of the House, as does good intent. In fact they abound throughout the length and breadth of our society. Our duty must be to harness these for the common good – so as to put them to the service of fellow Singaporeans, and to build a better society. I look forward to doing this as effectively as I can,” said Tan, who is MP for Marine Parade GRC.

    Desmond Lee will take over Tan’s ministerial role at MSF and will continue as Second Minister in the Ministry of National Development. He will relinquish his appointments in the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Prime Minister’s Office.

    Meanwhile, Josephine Teo will be appointed Second Minister in the Ministry of Home Affairs. She will continue as Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister in the Ministry of Manpower, and relinquish her appointment in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    All changes will take effect next Monday when Parliament sits.

    I believe what he is saying is that I will do my best in the job as speaker but I can and will do more than the speaker job. He has to say it this way because he used to be a full minister but now he is relegated to the speaker of Parliament which is a lesser role.
    That's just being politically polite.

    TCJ thinks he is doing his best. But the results are disastrous. Look at how he messed up MOM and MSF

    It may be a demotion in title...but the tax payers I am sure are suckered to pay the same for more...that is why he is doing his best?...His best to make more money....the 70% are sure suckers!

    Perhaps what TCJ was trying to say: "I will do my best and try to make more money".

    Nobody really ask the question, as usual, " Is he getting lesser pay as a speaker of parliament or getting the same salary as previously"?? He is still smiling, no brainer to see through the facade on this right?....you dock the salary & demote anybody...even they remain, you can be sure that, productivity will drop by 99% & you can be sure, that the person demoted, who plot for a resignation in the future & had already started looking for another job..

    Is this BG so loyal ?.....

    just in :




    SINGAPORE - Minister for Social and Family Development Tan Chuan-Jin has urged the public not to read too much into one of the Facebook posts he made shortly after Tuesday's (Sept 5) announcement that he had been nominated as the new Speaker of Parliament.

    In the personal post, Mr Tan had written: "May God continue to grant me wisdom, courage and love in all that I do. However inadequate as I may be, I hope that I can fight the good fight, finish the race and keep the faith.

    "And of course. My family. Words cannot express how much your continued love and support mean to me in carrying out my duties and responsibilities
