Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have waited their whole lives for this day, are raising their voices jubilantly and pumping their fists into the air as they collectively shout “Chee by-election!” with utmost enthusiasm.

This after the Singapore Democratic Party chief Chee Soon Juan announced he is going to bring the ruling PAP government to court as it refuses to call for a by-election in Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC after Halimah Yacob resigned to become a Malay president.

One Singaporean, Gong Pai Wei, said he will support the SDP by shouting non-stop: “Chee by-election! Chee by-election!”

“I can’t wait for this Chee by-election to get started!”

Other locals said they will help Chee put pressure on the PAP by using the hashtag #cheebyelection to bring attention to SPD’s cause.

Another local, Kao Peh Kia, said: “When the SDP fights for the rights of Singaporeans, Chee Soon Juan is putting himself forward on behalf of Singaporeans.”

“That’s why we have no qualms demanding for a Chee by-election to take place.”

“When there is a Chee by-election, there will be a Chee bi-daily walkabouts and recruitment in the ramp up for an electoral battle.”

“We need to say this Chee by-election loud and proud on television, radio and Internet because this is the truth.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in fairness and justice, are expecting a new MP who is of presidential calibre to take over Halimah Yacob in Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC.

This after the famous Indian woman resigned from her political party to be president.

One Singaporean, Ha Lee Mah, said: “We do not want any basic run-of-the-mill person from PAP to be our MP in Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC.”

“We only deserve an Indian woman who is presidential.”

“If we don’t, we are just shortchanging ourselves and settling for whatever comes along.”

Other locals said getting any ordinary MP does not bode well.

Another local, Yin Du Ren, said: “Getting an MP who is not presidential will only undermine the trust and respect of residents.”

“We must not give in. We must fight for another Indian person who is capable of becoming president.”

“That’s why we need Tharman Shanmugaratnam as our new MP.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see progress and regression at the same time, are calling out Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC as the first staunchly Chinese GRC in Singapore.

This after its only Indian MP Halimah Yacob will become the next president of Singapore come September 2017.

One Singaporean, Ma Lai Ren, said: “In a bid to reserve the elected presidency for Malays, Singapore inevitably makes an Indian woman become president.”

“Worse, this leaves Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC as the first and most staunchly Chinese GRC in Singapore as there are three heterosexual, upper class Chinese men left to run the place.”

“If this isn’t the face of male Chinese privilege, I don’t know what is.”

Other locals said three Chinese men in a GRC is not the worst thing for Singapore.

Another local, See Mi Sai, said: “The worst thing for Singapore is to have three Chinese men who believe they have what it takes to represent the minority groups.”

“The absolute worst are those Chinese men who believe they have highly fluid identities and are expansive in lived experiences to act as representatives of subjugated persons when they don’t at all.”
