Dr Wong Wee Nam - notable quote

'It is not for any individual to decide who is fit to stand for election. It is for an informed and intelligent electorate to decide who should be elected. This is a very fundamental principle of the democratic process.' Dr Wong Wee Nam. Have Singaporeans been robbed of this right to decide who can or cannot run for election and who can or cannot be elected?

It remind me of our President election few years back.

According to my foreign friends, this is a greatest joke in Singapore. Maybe I should say the world.

can't remember. did we elect our president?

Singapore did not have President election.

It should be called President selction by PAP which result in the President being beholden to the PAP.

The president was more or less given the post by you know who, because they disqualified all and sundry from contesting. This is also another universal truth in Singapore where they said that there are no better man for the job. Beats me, out of 4.5 million people at that!

redbean said...

cannot anyhow accused people, esp the president, of being beholden to anyone. the president is a respectable man.

That was what Mark Antony said of Brutus.

Having the president selected by popular vote is a very BAD idea.

Having a president APPOINTED by parliament—despite the obvious flaws in this idea—is far "safer".

Also is it good that presidential powers are reduced to the bare minimum. In that way the president can NEVER veto parliament (or congress) and make up his "own rules" to bring in ridiculous ideas like "The Patriot Act" as Bush did in the US.

I use the US as an example of the dangers of allowing presidential powers to expand from a more-or-less "figurehead role" to the present (so-called) "Leader of The Free World". How strange it is that this "leader" (so-called) is an obviously anti-freedom TYRANT.

No, if there is one thing "right" about S'pore's political structure, that is the role of president relegated to "figurehead" and ceremonial symbol, with no powers to veto parliament.

any tyrant is bad under any system. democracy got tyrant? in the US?

Alan Wong said...

Until today, I am still wondering what is the purpose of the Singapore President?

I always have the feeling that if the President drops dead today, it's not going to make any difference to Singapore tomorrow!

calai said...

Matilah_Singapura, you might want to read how the act was passed before shooting yourself in the foot. It was not passed by bush alone... Your facts were ALL wrong about the PATRIOT ACT... I also believe you have a misconception about what it actually is... Please read and not be ignorant (OR at least do your research before you post)

The Singapore President is looking after our reserves. Right now he is still trying to figure out how much Temasek/GIC is worth because when then President Ong Teng Cheong asked for figures he was told it would take 50 years to work out. Well, the present President has been there for only two terms and will need another 40 years to solve this problem. So, the President is indeed very important

Anonymous said...

So the Gahmen will be taking another 40 years to calculate what our GIC/Temasek/Reserves are worth.

So we are talking about billions and billions of reserves, is it?

With such reserves, surely we can support those who are destitute and > 82 years without the need for everyone to pay for the COMPULSORY-LIVE-LONGER-BUT-BETTER-DIE-EARLY Insurance ?

Anonymous said...

No! No! No! The billions and billions of our reserves are not for peasants like us (sorry if I offend some bros here). We hear of it and we just sort of dream about it sometimes when they mention it to make you drool. But to tell them to share with those peasants 82 years and above, just wait long long lah.

This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.

I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more
than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
