Murali, Mur Ali, Mura Lee and Michael Paul.
This after the PAP MP won the Bukit Batok by-election convincingly in May 2016 against a straight Chinese man.
One Singaporean, Mi Mee, said: “The secret to Murali’s electoral success was that he utilised four names to appeal to the four races in Singapore.”
“To reach his own community, he remained as ‘Murali’.”
Other locals said this bodes well for the upcoming Elected Presidency in Singapore.
Another local, Ma Lai Ren, said: “Being a minority is no barrier to winning the popular vote.”
“Murali’s victory shows that either he is a sorcerer or Singaporeans are not racist.”
