S’poreans reach compromise: Tharman to be PM, Lee Hsien Loong can be AM

Posted on 05 October 2016

Citizens regard this decision as final.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe they are fair and square, are clasping their hands in front of them and looking mighty pleased with themselves after coming to a win-win deal.

This after they negotiated amongst themselves as citizens with rights, a compromise that would see Tharman Shanmugaratnam become PM, while Lee Hsien Loong will be AM.

One Singaporean, Xi Kan, said: “By making Tharman a PM, Singaporeans from all walks of life are fulfilling a long-standing wish.”

“As we as citizens also understand that there cannot be two PMs in Singapore, we have unanimously decided to make Lee Hsien Loong an AM instead.”

“This bodes well as Tharman can take the afternoon shift — that’s why it is called PM — and Lee Hsien Loong will be transferred to the morning shift, which is why he is AM. This will be a transition period before Tharman becomes full prime minister.”

“It just so happens there is AM and PM in the 24-hour cycle, so this is a good coincidence.”

Other Singaporeans felt the distinction is clear and reflects the current status of Tharman and Lee.

One local, Boh Xiang, said: “I think PM Tharman and AM Lee makes perfect sense contrary to some quarters who are apologising that the distinction is too convenient.”

“It is clear that PM Tharman stands for Prime Minister Tharman. Therefore, AM Lee stands for Already Minister Lee.”

“See, so simple.”
