Malay family adopts Tan Cheng Bock, steamrolls path to Elected Presidency

Posted on 19 November 2016

Loophole in Elected Presidency criteria found.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, from all races and religions, are clapping their hands and praising their respective gods.

This after Tan Cheng Bock got adopted by a Malay family, effectively throwing wide open the race to the next Elected Presidency in Singapore.

One Singaporean, Fu Mu Qing, said: “As the next Elected Presidency due next year is reserved for a Malay candidate, this turn of events has thrown up a viable candidate at long last.”

“It is too late for Parliament to pass any laws to patch this loophole now.”

“Looking forward to another President Tan in office.”

However, other Singaporeans are sceptical this move will be considered acceptable by locals by and large.

Another local, Yin Leow, said: “I have my doubts as to whether another President Tan is palatable and Singaporeans of all races can handle it.”

“Because in our minds, the only person who can be our president and prime minister is still Tharman Shanmugaratnam.”

At press time, thousands upon thousands of Chinese families in Singapore are looking into adopting Tharman.
