We have been taken for ride by the reserved presidency

Mdm Halimah Yacob took the oath of office on 13th September 2017, ostensibly as an honour to the Malays, though we Malays had never asked for it.

As the largest minority community in Singapore, which is in real danger of being overtaken by the Indian community at the rate CECA is being exploited and taken advantage of, what we Malays want actually is a leadership that is honourable, capable, colour blind and carries out its duties fairly without discrimination.

We do not bother about his or her racial background. Most importantly we detest any form of tokenism aimed at hoodwinking the world at large that we are a progressive and democratic multiracial nation where citizens of all races are treated equally without any form of discrimination whatsoever. Unfortunately this is not the case.

For over two years now we have not seen any signs that having a Malay president would make any difference to our life as a community. We are lacking in all sectors, discriminated in the armed forces for decades because our loyalty to the nation is being perpetually doubted.

Our women folk working in several professions are still prevented from wearing the tudung though the president is wearing it. The national language is not being taught and made compulsory in all institutions to the extent that it is alien to the majority of the population, let alone to the throngs of newly minted citizens.

We wonder why the need to show the world that we now have a Malay president when things remain the same for us, without any indication that it will ever change as long as the PAP remain in power.

Looks like we have been taken for a ride.

  • opposition dude:

    It doesn’t matter what race the president is lah, he/she will just continue to be a puppet and that is it. He/she will never talk about the reserves that he/she is supposed to be responsible for and we all know it.

    Just witness the last 2 presidents, Nathan and Tan. Did either ever speak a word on the reserves or anything else?

  • NotMyProblem:

    The very first day when PAP said 4=5 was the day when the whole of Singapore citizen were taken for a ride to Timbuktu.

    @Jufrie; you are right “being overtaken by the Indian community at the rate CECA is being exploited and taken advantage of”, DON’T FORGET SHE IS AN INDIAN HERSELF.

    46% of our citizen, the new citizen, is unable to tell what is SG’s national language.

    If we still vote for the PAP, Singaporeans will be riding over the cliff. DON’T blame the PAP, blame yourselves.

  • No Mandate, No 2nd Chance:

    Not only Fixing the opposition, have been Fixing the People.
    Readily forsaking the People for own gains….CECA, PMD, billions to foreign students, busloads….

    Constitution stated that the President “is to be elected by citizens of Singapore. They make until own elected. Ask them take back self assign lah….because there are a lot of difference between People’s empowered President vs self appointed President.

    No 2nd Chance from me though.

    The US take it very serious even for the President to be above the LAWS. No meaning for Constitution to be amended like mainan mainan play play.

    God Grace…. force until TCB come out to take over them, ENTIRELY. LOL. Do you think that is more stupid?

    All be careful of more and more international interviews and own-self ask, own-self talk kinds of arrangements, football win, golden horse award or many more “Feel-Good United Spirit” propaganda from tax payers money coming , since ZERO, all bad Performance from them and nothing to show results, since “Fixing WP”, no more yield any positive result for them. Election will be delayed until end of time, next year around end quarter. Like the mouse, cornered to dead end.

    Also be careful of cheating arrangement as last resort because they cannot lose or all dead fish exposed. From counting to bus-loads of Ah-nehs to volt for them.

    My advice to TCB, enhance the discretion, filter and filter of who he takes in. Install own security and spy team. Why? It’s Politic!

    Next year, my prediction, 2 falling dirty comets from Grace coming.

  • Harder Truths:

    Again the pappys always race-bait. You are a not citizen with equal rights. Depending on your race, religion or whether you are a university peeping tom, you are treated differently and judged differently by the system.

    A system that race baits fails – this is a proven fact. $G has played the race card too often too long. The effects are total distrust between races and against those in power of a different race. Migrants increase this distrust with their hometown racial and caste system politics brought into $G – both socially and in the office.

    If people think this kind of society can survive look at Hong Kong & South Asia where most of this shit comes from. Then tell me there is no problem.

  • Kk:

    LKY, in one of his book a few years back, worried that our local total Malay population will be overtaken by large no. of Indian foreign workers, PRs & their dependents, including many Indian schools here in SG.

    Now that total figure for Indian nationals surely exceed by large margin, over total local Malay population numbers!

    Govt is too damn fearful to release real actual total no. of foreign Indians Vs. Total lical Malay population numbers…..

    Pathetic thanks to CECA

    Not only will Malays remain a minority race, but local-born Singaporeans will be minority if they continue with their “open-leg” and “Singaporean First- is-Bad” policy, and keep on minting new citizens.

  • Hawking Eye:

    Restricting the current presidency for a minority candidate was meant to prevent Tan Cheng Bock from contesting for the post for fear that he may possibly defeat a PAP nominee. Tan was a man in white and even if he were to be elected, the roof will not come down crashing for the PAP. He will give a good fight against Halimah but the latter is more likely to win. Self doubt is the worst doubt for PAP. How long will the PAP be playing it safe – until it runs out of options? If the elite syndrome infects the party, the unraveling can come sooner than later. No amount of intelligence input can save the party from downward spiral if it does not watch out.

  • adek, she is INDIAN lah:

    you say ceca ah nehs are overtaking malay as 2nd largest in pap Spore.

    of course.

    why else is there a need for an INDIAN president in pap istana if not for the ceca ah nehs.

    but all is not lost. your quickly demoting group can regain 2nd place if everyone of you votes OPPO this GE2019.

    then

    guaranteed Spore no longer becomes the thieving slum it is.

  • Pioneer:

    The sudden change of constitution for a minority president is, to me, the most controversial issue in my life from birth (British subject, then M’sian & now SG). To me, this change to me is not “neat” & raised alot of suspicious among our citizens (whether Chinese, Malays, or Indians). Since the elected president scheme was implemented, it is open to all eligible citizens………..regardless race, language or religion. No one questioned the need of a Malay president, not even the elected Malay MPs or other minority race MPs. Out of the blue, the change in consitution was made, and many citizens suspected that the greatest fear factor was the uprising and respected Dr Tan Cheng Bock. The rest is history.

  • TruBlu:

    By such *reservation*,it shows that the govt doesnt think we are ONE SINGAPOREANS.
    Else,why need such a thingy?
    We are SINGAPOREANS n should be honestly seen as such.
    Else,stop the crap of singing ONE SINGAPORE.

    BTW,THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO COME ONLY FROM ONE SEGMENT OF SOCIETY?

    Maybe we shud instead RESERVE PRESIDENCY ONLY FOR SGS NOT CONNECTED TO GOVT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER OVER A TEN YEAR PERIOD,say?

    I see so many people here bad mouthing the PAP but when elections come, the PAP wins again.

    I am sick of seeing all these useless comments.

    There is still a majority of Singaporeans supporting the PAP.

    The number of new citizens is growing and this group of people will vote the PAP into power.

    We are farking DOOMED!
