S’poreans react to President Tony Tan’s 13th parliament address after swearing in session

Posted on 16 January 2016

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


President Tony Tan delivered his opening address to Parliament on Jan. 15, 2016, hours after 89 Members of Parliament (MPs) and two Non-Constituency MPs (NCMPs) were sworn in.

In his opening address, he outlined five key aims for Government to fulfil: Keeping Singapore safe and secure, renewing the economy, fostering a more caring society, transforming the urban landscape, and engaging and partnering with Singaporeans in nation building.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “That has got to be one of the most expensive speeches of all time.”
Jiang Niao Hua, 43-year-old pet shop owner


sian-half-uncle “Nice to see he met his KPI this year so early on already.”
Zhuan Da Qian, 63-year-old ex-banker


happy-bird-girl “I am impressed he doesn’t put himself to sleep at the rate he is going.”
Swee Jiao, 17-year-old dropout
