A year after deciding to contest in the Presidential Elections, how much does Halimah Yacob know about our national reserves?

Exactly a year ago on 6th August 2017, Halimah Yaccob decided to tender her resignation as both the Speaker of Parliament and a PAP Member of Parliament to stand for the Presidential Elections. As a concerned citizen, I have a question that I would like my President to tell all concerned and patriotic citizens – including myself.

As the President of the Republic of Singapore, Madam Yacob serves two very important Executive Functions. The is to safeguard our country’s national reserves that have been accumulated over the past decades, and the second is to vet any key appointments in the public sector before they can take effect

Has she requested the PAP government to provide her a clear and complete list of our collective reserves? Does she know what makes up the movables and the immovable, how much of our reserves are invested in stocks and shares, in bonds and properties, here and overseas? etc.
.
So far, Singaporeans only know that the late Ong Teng Cheong had enough sense of responsibility in him to ask the PAP government that question and was told that they needed 56 men years to come up with the answer. The Singaporean public didn’t get to know if the late SR Nathan or Tony Tan asked the PAP government such a question.

As a citizen, I would like to ask HY once again if she has asked the pap government to provide her a complete list of our past reserves that she is supposed to safeguard.

If the answer is Yes, did she get a full and satisfactory co-operation from the PAP government? Did she fully understand what was provided to her? This is very important as it impacts how well she can perform her executive function?

If she has no idea (or merely some faint idea) only of what she is supposed to protect, then how can she do an effective job of acting as a ‘second key’ and truly protecting our reserves?

In the interest of our country, I sincerely hope that Madam Halimah Yacob will respond clearly and not just conveniently keep quiet and remain silent.

And if she did not get any co-operation from the PAP government, then why not? Did she simply kept quiet all this time while cruising along day after day and salivating while looking at the fat salary that has been credited into her bank account at the end of each month?

Just like any security guard who is on duty, it is only reasonable for the residents to expect him/her to know where are the fire exits, the nearest fire extinguisher are, etc. Similarly, I would also reasonably expect my Head of State to know what she is supposed to safeguard and all related information.

Am I being too serious or unreasonable with my expectations?

To be able to protect our reserves effectively, she must have the spine and the courage to ask the PAP government hard and intelligent questions and not settle for anything less.

    She is more interested in the million dollars salaries she is collecting rather than answer to all these non material questions of the locals.

    *****
    Hal Ya was chosen for her discipline and subserviency in abiding by instructions and a big fat cheque was the carrot/pay off.

    She’s not capable of doing anything else. She can’t even string along a coherent sentence. Imagine her asking for the breakdown and location of the reserves. No one would bloody understand her. They’d think she’s asking for her favourite “Milo kosong” !!!

    She is indeed a well chosen candidate, by the PAP.

    She was dumb and dozey enough to accept it and an absence of integrity and pride, no doubt helped it along.

    Hal Ya ……. the ultimate puppet on million dollar strings !!!

  • Should be President TCB:

    Haha! Thousands of reporters from all over the world during the Trump-Kim summit didn’t even see her and didn’t even know who our president is. She definitely is having a better life than Nathan and Tony!

    Anyway, you think she’ll understand even if given the list? Seeing those numbers in her bank account surely no problem but putting those figures in our reserves right before her eyes, you bet she’d yawn like how she was caught in camera during the TV charity programme.

    She’ll go down sg history as the WORST president before singaporeans vote for change in the next GE.

    No one can pass the strong man to touch his treasury unless the strong man KKJ gets “chopped”.
    The lady is “too shy” or scare to even look at the KKJ let alone touch it so your careful request to have the KKJ opened for enquiry is asking for her to be hanged like wet dirty and smelly socks on HDBs laundry poles to dry.

    The same with all wealthy or self interests and dumb politicians/academics(yes, they are all useless). See big fat KKJ all balls shrink.

    Screwed by church collaborative ideology just like in Rome

  • SGP pledge is now corrupted:

    we were born before independence.

    we went through the rise (1st gen pap rule), stagnation (2nd gen pap rule), and decline of Singapore (3rd gen pap rule).

    we went to malay school in telok kurau. not once did we ever distinguish anyone by race. we played games as one people, we supported each other as one people. later, after independence, we pledged as one united people, regardless of RACE language or religion.

    imagine our shock when 3rd gen pap clown said we needed a president by RACE.
    made worse when an INDIAN was selected.

    how can such corruption of our pledge take place? WELL. it can take place if we have a parleement that is subservient to S$m instead of PRINCIPLES that made us 1st world. no wonder we are today 3rd world all over again.

    now our pledge is with regards to RACE. sad. very sad.

  • NotMyProblem:

    My first question would be; Does she know what she is supposed to do as a Malay-President. Is it only do good, do together keeping quiet on everything? See no evil, hear no evil and say no evil.

    Or being an Indian, she does not know what exactly a Malay should do?

  • Boh Kia See:

    The answer to that question is secret for this transparent PAP Government.

    So don’t ask again–just keep it on your list of questions that you should ask during election campaigns when they talk about transparency.

    Another secret is the remuneration of the CEO for TH. Keep that on your list as well.

    There are many questions that cannot be answered by the PAP. In order to get the real and truthful answer you have to remove them totally from the scene.

    It is like a boulder that blocks the door and you cannot go in or see from the outside was is going on inside. They call that transparency.

    If you don’t know what is going on, then how can you say there is no corruption? Simply put–we just don’t know.

    Once they are out of power, there will be many surprises that any new Government should be prepared with contingency plans. The PAP looks after themselves not the country.

    Simon don’t expect your questions to be answered.She is under control of pinky and would not want to antagonise him and end up like Ong TC.She would continue to live her mismatched and irresponsible role of visiting schools,old age home,taking selfie with public,promote Milo Kosong and be paid millions? Why do we need this pressed Sident and waste taxpayers money? Hope that 70% sinkies know who to vote for next GE.But will they?

    Think in the Istana aka House of Cards, she is more interested where the hell the pots and pans are kept for her to cook hot soup and nasi lemak for for friends, her Big Boss and occasionally visiting foreign Head of States. Other than that, she has, like the saying “no eyes see” (mole Ngan tai).

    From what we know of what happened to deceased President Ong, I don’t think subsequent Presidents dare to ask those questions or raise the issues. They know what’s awaiting those who dare to probe too strongly into this. The risks to their future are too great.
    Poor President HY. For the rest of her life, she now has to insist that she’s a Malay ! Even her descendants will be in the same position. Someone has altered her ancestry & roots. And for the sake of the Country, she accepted this fact. Is this a cultural crime ?

  • Songshu:

    After the late 1st Elected President Ong, all subsequent Presidents have deteriorated in quality to become one that’s not to check & safeguard our national reserves but to protect & safeguard the prevailing Govts. Since then our presidents’ job seems just to wave hands to the crowd, receive foreign dignitaries, cut ribbons at functions & help make life more difficult for opponents of the Govt. For these, he/she gets $mlns/year ! Now, don’t tell me Mr Goh is going to blast us again for begrudging that the President is too well-paid for the little tasks that he/she does !

  • Certainly # Not My President!:

    Can Singaporeans see you do something brave like late President Ong Teng Cheong?

    Gardening, charity work and promoting Milo is simply not good enough!

    Start to be a Responsible President before Singaporeans call a referendum to have you removed!
