No big deal, just another portfolio.
This after two part-time ministers were promoted to full education ministers, but the decision did not fulfil the deep-seated desire of Singaporeans.
One local, Tian Cai, said Tharman taking on another portfolio is okay: “There is no doubt that Tharman becoming education minister again will be good for Singapore.”
“After this round, he will be the president and prime minister at the same time.”
“It is just another additional responsibility, so it is no big deal for the man who is wildly talented.”
“He can be anything to anyone.”
At press time, Singaporeans are also ready to handpick Tharman as the leader of the opposition.
