President Tan will measure up to expectations

'I have no doubt President Tan will measure up to expectations.'

MR K. SABESAN: 'Once again, voters have shown their political pragmatism and picked Dr Tony Tan as Singapore's seventh president. Voting in Dr Tan was apt, bearing in mind his significant economic expertise and public service record. Last Saturday's presidential election showed that while Singaporeans no longer wish to have a figurehead as their head of state, we do not wish to see confrontational politics involving the presidential, executive and legislative branches either, which a small nation like ours can ill-afford. Voters have shown that they prefer an elected president who will check the Government privately without paralysing routine governance. At the hustings, the three other candidates had made suggestions that are worth considering. The most important suggestion is that of issuing an annual statement of the work done by the president's office. Another is to scrutinise public appointments to ensure that a single person does not hold multiple appointments. I have no doubt that President Tony Tan will measure up to the changing expectations of Singaporeans and perform effectively as our head of state.'
