That’s what one of my yoga mates declared when our group of ladies started talking animatedly about Saturday’s presidential election be4 tonite’s session to induce peace and calmness began.
Why blame the presidential election committee?
Because in her view, it had been too liberal in issuing eligibility certificates
It’s also her view that for the 2017 presidential election all wannabee presidents should be made to sit an examination to make sure they understand the Singapore Constitution thoroughly. Otherwise no go!
I think that’s an excellent suggestion.
To which I would add the need for a medical examination too, to ensure that whoever gets into the Istana is both physically and psychologically fit for the job.
If most jobs demand such clearance, why not that of our head of state?
That way, we will have some safeguard against ending up with someone like Rome’s Nero for 6 long years and all of 72 months!
Meanwhile, it’s my fervent prayer that the right President Tan — and not a wan-Tan (no Mr Smith, I don’t mean wanton) – makes it on Aug 27.
Meanwhile2, time to cool off with a sun salute in the middle of the night
