He is above prime minister and president level.
This after citizens established a new monarchy in the island republic in recognition that Tharman is above prime minister and president level.
One Singaporean, Zuo Huang Di, said: “As Emperor, Singaporeans shall recognise his talents as vastly superior and cannot be contained within the usual institutions of governance and cannot be measured against his peers in the Cabinet.”
“To lump him with everyone else would do no justice to everyone, including him.”
“Moreover, this is a citizen-led initiative. We didn’t get funding from the People’s Association, so they do not have a say in it.”
Other locals said the time has come for Singapore to enforce lèse majesté laws to prohibit the criticism of Tharman, who is viewed by all and sundry, especially his subjects, as faultless and beyond reproach.
Another local, Mei Cuo, said: “Lèse majesté laws must be applied as it is more to protect the people because we only demonstrate our simplicity and faults when we cannot fully comprehend but yet speak out against Tharman.”
“But knowing Tharman, he would frown upon lèse majesté laws because he is liberal and open-minded about opposition.”
“Such a wise, lovely man.”
In his first address to his nation and people, Tharman is expected to decree Singapore a lovely country, albeit one that might slip into technical recession at the end of this year, but there’s nothing to worry, because he will see to it.
