Tan Kin Lian for President
The Sunday Times published an interview with Tan Kin Lian and his aspiration to run for the elected President or a MP. The startling point is that he is going to run as an opposition candidate, giving reasons that he did not agree with the ruling party which he was once a member. Tan Kin Lian has all the prerequisites of a professional, and he fits the mold of what the people have come to expect of a MP. Though his wife expressed fear of a political backlash, Tan Kin Lian is still keen to push on if the people give him some endorsement of support. We will need more able people like Tan Kin Lian to step forward, maybe form a new party of like minded people and stand in the next GE. A party with creditable professionals will stand a very good chance of taking on the ruling party. There are many able people out there who are as good if not better and it is about time that they do something for the people and country. The country needs them, the country needs new blood and new direction, new philosophy and policies, and a new set of moral principles that are people oriented, for the well being of the people. The seed of a new political era has been planted and a new leader is emerging. The good men and women should rally behind him to provide a decent and respectable alternative to the people. There must be many talents out there who are ready to serve for the interest of the people.
