"Tan Cheng Bock’s legal challenge on upcoming Presidential Election begins

SINGAPORE: Former presidential candidate Tan Cheng Bock's legal challenge to the basis of the upcoming Presidential Election was heard by the High Court on Thursday (Jun 29).

The hearing was not open to the public.

Earlier this month, the High Court accepted Dr Tan's application, which questioned the Government’s decision to reserve the upcoming Presidential election for Malay candidates.
His legal challenge follows a press conference in March, when he called for the next presidential election to be an open one.

Dr Tan's challenge means the High Court will have to consider whether a piece of legislation counting President Wee Kim Wee as the first elected President for the purposes of the upcoming reserved election was consistent with the Constitution."

There is "disquiet" abt the counting of the 1st EP for the "reserved for minority race based" EP. "Disquiet", a word borrowed from PM Lee when he commented on LKY's last will abt demolishing his old house so no public can "trample" in his home.

I can accept the need to hv a minority race President. In fact, no need an EP. Go back to appointed Presudent ("AP") since the cabinet can VETO the EP's veto!!

Change the Constitution so that each race will simply rotate among themselves. 

Better still, abolish this ceremonial role of President since it is the PM n his/her cabinet that really run the country!

I m glad the the High Court judge will rule on this soon as we hv too much going in the ever lasting LEEs tragic saga n need some distractions!

Of course for some this reserved EP IS also another FARCE!!??

Good judgement to the Judge.

Majulah Singapura.
