Possibilty of a Fluke Presidential Election Result feared by LKY
I was reading Temasek Review Emeritus and it has a article title "Who would you prefer to be the next President of Singapore?".
Based on the straw poll and 39.9% who did not voted for PAP, I suspect there may be fluke Presidential Election result our white haired oracle in his 80s had been prophesying.
Unless the partial Singapore Election Department has planned something to stop Mr Tan Jee Say from appearing on nomination day on 17 Aug 2011 (such as disqualifying him liked what they did to the SDA team at Tanjong Pagar GRC) or unforeseen mishaps such a flat tyre etc.
Then high chances that Mr Tan Jee Say may be elected. Imagine him getting the 40% while the 3 remaining Tans getting 20% of the votes each.
But the Election Department had already help Dr Tony Tan by putting the candidates' faces on the polling papers. Most of us recognized Tony Tan's face, less people will recognize Tan Cheng Bock, Tan Kin Lian or Tan Jee Say's faces.
I better have my own picture to remind myself who to vote for on 27 Aug 2011.
