Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can acquiesce when the time comes, are applauding lightly and nodding slightly.

This after Tharman Shanmugaratnam has been promoted to Minister Mentor after declining the role of prime minister.

One Singaporean, Neige Zi Zheng, said she is heartened by this turn of events: “It is not ideal but I’m not complaining for now.”

“As Minister Mentor, Tharman can still exercise influence from behind the scenes, if you know what I mean.”

Other locals said the Minister Mentor role will aid in preparations.

Zuo Dao Wan, another local, said: “Tharman will then be ready to be President, Prime Minister and Minister Mentor at the same time in the near future.”
