Halimah Yacob not very decisive as a leader

Posted on 30 July 2017

If she can’t make up her mind.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who cannot stand hemming and hawing, are shaking their heads in disapproval.

This after Halimah Yacob said she is still not decided about running for the Presidential Election 2017, even though it is only one month away.

One Singaporean, Zhen Mao Dun, said: “She cannot behave like this and expect to be seen as a decisive force to be reckon with.”

“Imagine how dinner preparations in the Istana would be like?”

“‘Madam President, would you like beef or chicken for dinner?'”

“‘Let me think about it.'”

“And then nothing gets done and all the guests go hungry.”

Other locals said the hallmarks of good leadership is having the foresight from the get go and being able to call the shots early while staying ahead of the curve so as to be a first mover.

Another local, Ma Lai Ren, said: “Maybe we shouldn’t blame Halimah Yacob.”

“The concept of presidency is a patriarchal concept imposed on men and women to sustain a global capitalist system.”
