Interesting to see the outcome.

You mean he is already getting retired? Too young to be President of Singapore in my opinion, I mean what kind of job is that? No real power.........

He's too young to run for presidency. Though he has achieved much, IMHO, seniority in Age is also a factor for respect. I find his pics taken in news paper look pretty arrogant.

LOL...

I find this amusing, it occurred to me that all the mug shots of people accused of something looks really bad, hair messy, face oily etc.. etc..

It's started, what's started? i.e.; creating a public opinion of the guy. See how "powderful" the media can be?

i support your view.

but, how do we, as citizens, evaluate President Nathan, being incumbent, on his effective role as far as holding the second key to the country's reserves?

Yeah part of the problem is that the man on the street doesn't know what the President does. What do they stand for? Even Andrew Kuan's website has very little info about his political views, what he stands for etc.

Good question,

Unless there's lots of behind-the-scenes work, or simply because I'm ignorant, I'm not sure remembering what the current President Nathan actually does which is visible to the public eye.

Not sure if it is just me, but when I read the news today, I can't help but suspect some other factors in play which might have led to the lawyer's letter being issued.

I was thinking more of things not related to being a figurehead in social situations

I dun agree... i think it will be a complete waste of time and money if he's just there for the sake of having someone to vote. I doubt he will garnermuch votes anyway....

ya I don't know why people are judging things based on appearance. For me, I basically see this as a chance for me to vote and do something rather than sit there complain and complain about this and that.

I think I will vote for Andrew Kuan if he stands for election. My personal opinon. I think the president is a very impt post but it is soooo HARD to get capable people standing up for Singapore and putting their necks on the line to actually do something. What ever Andrew Kuan's motives are, it is a GOOD thing he stepped up. From his resume, he is no tom dick and harry. And if he MANAGE to pass all the stringent criteria setup, he will get my vote.

This "presidential selection thing" is actually a double edged sword. On one hand, it limits the amount of opposition in the presidential race, on the other hand, if anyone gets through the selection process, he is immediately deemed as a credible alternative to the incumbent.

I really hope nothing happens to Andrew Kuan, even if he lost. As if he gets through this process unscathe, it will encourage other more capable people to step forward next time. But if he ended up sued, fined, etc, who will ever stand up for singapore? Nowadays, it is so hard to open your mouth in the papers without getting sued. This is one of my chief issue with the present government.
