This is why Sinkies should not vote for Tharman as president

Presidential candidate talking rubbish.
How would the Sinkies know which cases the PM approved to be investigated and which cases the PM said to close?
No transparency.

SINGAPORE - The Singapore system is one that is transparent and it has never had a prime minister who prevented the Corrupt Practices Investigations Bureau (CPIB) from doing its work.
Presidential hopeful and former senior minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam said this on Saturday, while speaking to reporters during his campaign trail in Teck Whye.
He was responding to questions from the media regarding the CPIB probe into Transport Minister S. Iswaran.
“We’ve never had a Prime Minister (who) prevents the CPIB from doing its work. If ever the day comes, the president will be there...that’s the Singapore system,” he said.
He stressed that anything to do with integrity and incorruptibility is taken seriously, and that CPIB is given full rein.
He said: “It may not matter to some other countries, but Singapore is different and Singapore has to be different, because we don’t have much else.
“We’ve got our people with our skills and talents, much more now than when we started, but ultimately it’s the Singapore system.”

He added: “That’s what makes Singapore special, that’s what makes us admired around the world.
“So each time there’s a setback, treat the setback as an opportunity to strengthen the system, to display full transparency.”
On his friend and long-time colleague, Mr Iswaran, Mr Tharman is confident he will cope with the situation.

He said: “It’s not the end of his life or end of his future. He will go through with this. But let the investigation take its course, and let us not make judgments at this point. The system works and it must work.”
The former Coordinating Minister for Social Policies, stepped down from public service last Friday after four decades to run for the Singapore presidency.
The veteran economic policymaker has several other community engagements on Saturday, including a korban meat distribution and a Singapore Indian Development Association volunteers appreciation ceremony.

CPIB had confirmed on Friday that Mr Iswaran was arrested on Tuesday, released on bail, and had his passport impounded.
CPIB had said on Wednesday Mr Iswaran was assisting them with an investigation into a case it had uncovered.
He was arrested on the same day as tycoon Mr Ong Beng Seng, founder and managing director of Hotel Properties Limited. Mr Ong was also released on bail.
Mr Iswaran was instructed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to take leave of absence until the investigation is completed.
The Prime Minister’s Office said on Thursday that Mr Iswaran will remain in Singapore during his leave of absence and he will have no access to any official resources and government buildings.
Meanwhile, CPIB said Mr Ong was granted a request to travel overseas with his bail quantum increased to $100,000.
When he returns, he must report to CPIB and surrender his passport to them.

And if the other Presidential candidate George Goh is not a puppet of the PAP government, here is a golden opportunity for him to stand his stand on CPIB independence and win more votes.

Breaking news by the Embassy of Russia in Singapore. They are warning the world about the biological warfare attacks by the US Military

Covid19 was a US military weapon. We have known this for about a year now, from the Brooks Jackson lawsuit against Pfizer.

Please help to share and viral the news. We can no longer claim ignorance.

Please DO NOT VOTE for Tharman. He is a trustee on the board of the World Economic Forum and they are responsible for a lot of the mess that we are experiencing right now.

Please warn your friends. The Russian Military is warning the world. Please do not fall into the same trap in the next pandemic. We must stay vigilant.

I wonder if a POFMA notice will be issued to the Embassy of Russia in Singapore.

What do you think?
