Finally.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who would do anything that is good for the country, have handpicked Tharman Shanmugaratnam as Prime Minister.

This after Lee Hsien Loong is away on a 10-day leave until Dec. 31, leaving behind a vacuum in power.

One local, Zhong Yu, said the day has finally arrived for Tharman to shine: “There is no doubt that Tharman becoming prime minister will be good for Singapore.”

“As his performance will be good, Singaporeans will look to extend his vocation as PM even after Dec. 31, probably until Dec. 31 next year.”

However, other locals felt that this appointment might not be enough.

Another local, Zhong Tong, said: “When is Tony Tan taking leave?”

“About time right?”

He is above prime minister and president level.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who respect those who can and will, have hailed Tharman Shanmugaratnam as the newly-crowned King of Singapore.

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.

No big deal, just another portfolio.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who would do anything that is good for the country, have handpicked Tharman Shanmugaratnam as Education Minister.

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.

Death is preferable in such a world.

tharman-shanmugaratnam-PM

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know who is the right man for the job, are committing suicide en masse.

This after DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam declared that he is not going to be the next prime minister of Singapore.

One Singaporean, Zi Sha, said: “I don’t want to live in a world where Tharman cannot be my prime minister.”

“That will be living in a world of unfairness.”

Other locals said this is a failure of meritocracy.

Another Singaporean, Shi Bai, said: “Yes, Singapore has the best airport in the world. We have the nicest zoo. We got shiny buildings and cleaners washing the streets every fortnight.”

“But we don’t have Tharman as PM? What is this? A farce?”

At press time, six Chinese men vying to be the next prime minister is a testament to Singapore’s multi-racial society.

This is a clear sign race doesn’t matter, they said.

tharman-for-pm

Singaporean Indians from all walks of life, who feel confident because they have a solid representative in their midst, are heartened that Singaporeans at large want an Indian man to be the next prime minister.

This after Singaporeans from other walks of life indicated decisively that Tharman Shanmugaratnam is the man for the top job and this has nothing to do with his race at all, or rather, it was never a consideration.

One Singaporean, Arumugamsam, said: “This is proof that Singaporeans are race-blind and meritocratic at heart. If Singaporeans only see race, this would have never happened.”

“This vote of confidence in an Indian man has done more for cross-racial relationships than the cosmetic lip-service others are paying about wanting to foist upon Singaporeans a minority race candidate.”

“This is a win for inclusivity.”

Other local Indians said it is, therefore, ironic to suggest that Singaporeans will factor in race as this goes to show how easily race can be used as a political means by others to achieve their ends.

Another local, Shantini, said: “I can really feel the love emanating from the rest of Singapore as they have come out strongly to endorse an Indian man out of their own volition.”

“I feel proud because this choice of the people is authentic and heartfelt, unlike a lot of other initiatives that feel unnatural and patronising.”

“Even though this show of solidarity for one minority person will put paid to any notion that Singaporeans are racist, the superficial belief that Singaporeans will only vote along racial lines will persist as this is politics for you.”

He represents the best of Singapore: Multi-ethnic, rational, stately and meritocratic.

tharman-shanmugaratnam-president-pm

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise talent when they see it and are firm believers in meritocracy, are glad.

This after they heard that Tharman Shanmugaratnam will be appointed as both president and prime minister of Singapore at the same time.

One Singaporean, Yin Du Ren, said: “Tharman will fulfill both roles at the same time effortlessly given his calibre.”

“As a minority, he can better represent the interests of his fellow countrymen and countrywomen than six Chinese men vying for the prime minister role.”

However, other locals cautioned that the president and prime minister roles might still be too small and effortless for Tharman.

Another local, Zhen Neng Gan, said: “Given Singapore’s meritocratic ideals, Tharman can easily be prime minister, president, government of the day and opposition all wrapped up in one at the same time.”

“He will put the needs of Singaporeans first and conduct his own checks and balances and be fully accountable and transparent, something which has not always been the case in Singapore.”

“Furthermore, it will be hard to accuse his duo-appointment as tokenism since minorities will no longer be underrepresented and his capabilities will outshine everyone.”

At press time, Tharman is also becoming head judge, head of civil service, head of private sector, your best friend, guardian and listening ear.

He is somebody who is Indian, a bit bald, tall and wears glasses.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who cannot believe their eyes when they took a look at who is in the running for the next prime minister position in Singapore, all agree they need a minority race prime minister next.

This after the six leaders touted to have a chance of taking over the PM role are all Chinese and boring.

One Singaporean, Yin Du Ren, said: “I don’t know about other Singaporeans, but we can all agree the next prime minister is someone who is tall, a bit balding and wears glasses.”

“We all have this feeling he must be an Indian, although we don’t name names at this point.”

Other locals said the unspoken name of the minority race candidate with the most potential rolls off their tongue easily.

Another local, Zuo Zong Li, said: “He gives the PAP a good name. He is proof that talent is unevenly distributed in the party.”

“He is the only reason there is still hope for the PAP.”

“Even though his official title might be DPM, in my heart and mind, he is my prime minister.”

No matter who wins.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in peace and progress, have come out to regard Tharman Shanmugaratnam as their Nobel Peace Prize winner.

This after it was announced that a group of political activists and opposition politicians have nominated former political detainee Chia Thye Poh for the Nobel Peace Prize, saying his fight for political rights is an inspiration for current activists.

One Singaporean, He Ping, said Tharman Shanmugaratnam deserves the Nobel because he is a unifying statesman: “Tharman is the only Singaporean that people from both 70 percent and 30 percent factions can agree is capable and promotes unity.”

“And he can do that by not even being a political detainee.”

However, not all Singaporeans agree that awarding Tharman with the Nobel Peace Prize is a no-brainer.

One other local, Zhen Zhou Dao, said: “I feel it is not right to give this Nobel Peace Prize to Tharman Shanmugaratnam.”

“This is because it doesn’t go far enough in acknowledging his contributions to the world.”

“The Nobel Peace Prize should be renamed as Tharman Peace Prize instead.”

“That would really reflect his contributions to society.”

Saying how they cannot wait to show Singapore’s new prime minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam what they have done, Singaporeans from all walks of life who like Snoopy have uploaded numerous Peanutized cartoons of their leader onto their own Facebook accounts to share with friends and family.

This after The Peanuts Movie launched a website to allow anyone to create caricatures of themselves in the trademark style of Peanuts characters.

One Singaporean, Cha Lee Lau, said this rush to make a caricature of Tharman Shanmugaratnam shows the close bond he has formed with the general populace: “I was very excited the moment I saw the Snoopy-Charlie Brown website. The first few caricatures I did were of Tharman Shanmugaratnam as I wanted to show my friends and family what an inspiration he is to me.”

“And I wanted to be the first to do it so I can share on all my social media accounts.”

Other Singaporeans said they are glad they have been given this honour to be able to turn Tharman Shanmugaratnam into a cartoon for keepsake.

Wu See Hock, another local, said: “Everybody must Peanutize their own Tharman Shanmugaratnam if they really love Singapore.”

They picked him to lead the country ahead of Cabinet reshuffle.

tharman-shanmugaratnam-PM

Tharman Shanmugaratnam has emerged as the new Prime Minister of Singapore.

This after Singaporeans from all walks of life, who organised their own Cabinet reshuffle as they wanted to have a say in the political process, chose Tharman Shanmugaratnam as their new premier.

One Singaporean, Zuo Zhong Li, said: “As an active citizenry involved in making informed political choices and as part of the 70 percent who voted for the incumbent, we deliberated for a while before coming to this decision — about 10 minutes in total.”

“We did not take lightly this responsibility of choosing Tharman Shanmugaratnam as prime minister, as it is critical for Singapore to be led in the next few years by a capable leader who knows what he is doing and is well-liked by the populace.”

“As a nation, we, the general population have also approved the name change from PAP to TSP (Tharman Shanmugaratnam Party) after the new prime minister singlehandedly won the General Election 2015 on behalf of his colleagues.”

This view is shared by other locals who said there is absolutely nothing stopping Tharman Shanmugaratnam from stepping up.

Another race-blind Singaporean, Tng Lang, said: “He is Chinese enough for me.”

At press time, the general population is still at a deadlock as to who shall be named the next Transport Minister, with Vivian Balakrishnan, Khaw Boon Wan and Yaacob Ibrahim in the running.

Singaporeans, by and large, said they wouldn’t mind making all three as transport ministers as they can have one term in office left.

TSP will be a unifying party to bridge the differences between all Singaporeans.

tharman-shanmugaratnam-party-logo

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who found a leader they can believe in, have unveiled a new Tharman Shanmugaratnam Party (TSP) logo.

This after the Cabinet Minister captured the hearts and minds of all Singaporeans when he singlehandedly won the General Election 2015 for his party (still known to some as the PAP), which made him the people’s Prime Minister and also now recognised as the figurehead and de facto leader of a political party named after him and his capabilities.

One Singaporean, Qu Jiao Tang, said the decision to make Tharman Shanmugaratnam a party with his own logo is unanimous: “In Tharman we trust. All praise be unto him.”

“He is smart and humble. A true statesman who gives credit to his opponents, unlike some other so-called ‘leaders’. The PAP with Tharman Shanmugaratnam inside is like Jack’s Place hiring Gordon Ramsay.”

“As you can see, the PAP alone can command a 70 percent support base while the opposition makes up the remainder 30 percent.”

“But with Tharman at the forefront, it will naturally command 100 percent support from Singaporeans from all walks of life.”

“This is why the new logo incorporates Workers’ Party’s red and yellow and Tharman’s face as an emblem of unification.”

At press time, Singaporeans have declared Sept. 11 every year as Tharman Shanmugaratnam Day.

This after he paid tribute to opposition, said they can continue to contribute to Singapore after GE2015.

tharman-shanmugaratnam-opposition

Singaporeans from all walks of life who suddenly found themselves covered in white are all starting to refer to PAP as TSP, also known as Tharman Shanmugaratnam Party.

This after Tharman Shanmugaratnam paid tribute to opposition parties after General Election 2015 by saying: “We need a more reflective attitude after each election, and on how the opposition can continue to play a constructive and positive role in Singapore politics, as they must.”

Singaporeans who heard this said there was absolutely no doubt that it was Tharman who singlehandedly won the GE2015 for the PAP and he is the only statesman in the party.

One Singaporean, Zhuo Zhong Lee, said: “I am convinced Tharman Shanmugaratnam is not only prime minister material, but he is, in fact, the party itself.”

“Therefore, we need to change the PAP to TSP: Tharman Shanmugaratnam Party.”

However, other Singaporeans felt this does not go far enough.

Another local, Jin Kiang, said: “From now on Tharman Shanmugaratnam should be the only one allowed to speak on behalf of the party.”

“And his colleagues must donate their salary to him, since he is uniting Singaporeans, unlike other PAP politicians.”
