Of all who have expressed their interest to be President of Singapore, Mr Tan Kin Lian is the only one who openly shared his views of the proposed public transport fare hikes.

When asked by the media about his views of the public transport fare hikes, Dr Tan Cheng Bock was quoted to say, “We are not allowed to,we shouldn’t comment on issues because the President must be above all these discussions.”

The other two have not officially made any of their views known about this public transport issue.

The roles of the Singapore President has been mainly custodial and ceremonial, what do you want your Singapore President to be?

Some may argue that the Singapore President is bound by the constitution to be powerless but that does not mean the Singapore President cannot use his influence for the betterment of Singaporeans.

The President Star Charity uses the President’s influence to garner votes. Former President and the late Mr Ong Teng Chong became the patron of the first Singapore team to hike up Mount Everest, only then support came in.

The proposed public transport fare hike affects every Singaporean and should the President you choose be voicing these views on your behalf?
