I did indicate 2 weeks ago that cabinet had forced the 3 clowns to apologise. I also indicated that CEO would go. The discreet search has begun and one of those approached is the previous American CEO of HK MTR. The political capital has been damaged and surprises can no longer be tolerated. The previous CEO of LTA was removed when the HK press revealed the return of faulty carriages and the Minister was not notified. The recently appointed Chairman has done his assessment and it is likely that professional qualified in rolling stock operations will be recruited for key management positions. The fear is that no one qualified will touch this poisoned chalice and thus the secrecy. On identification of a willing candidate, the Chairman has been asked cover the CEO role. I am sure not only Singaporeans but SMRT employees will welcome this overdue change.
