PE 2011: Who Won, Who Lost, And Why

1. Tan Kin Lian

He comes across as a benign, constantly-blinking, diffident, slow-speaking, almost senile old man, totally out of his depth in international politics. The majority aren’t ready for such a man to be President.

2. Tan Jee Say

He was still fighting a General Election, not a Presidential Election. He came across as a fiery, confrontational man with an axe to grind, making promises he can’t keep and guaranteed to clash swords with the Cabinet. The majority aren’t ready for such a man to be President.

3. Tan Cheng Bock

He sold himself as a moderate, with a willingness to ask the Cabinet the right questions, despite his PAP background. He could have appealed to everyone, including the “pro-opposition” voters. But he got played out by Tan Jee Say.

4. Tony Tan

He only got the diehard PAP-voters. He won because Tan Cheng Bock got played out by Tan Jee Say and Tan Kin Lian.

    OMG! Stop being self-righteous sore losers. Your candidate was not good enough to win the fight. That’s all to it. We all voted for who we wanted to because his values resonated with us and we are still happy with our decision. I have never encountered such a bunch of petty group of people and I do not think that in the history of elections has there ever been a group such as yours. I hope we never do again because you are really dividing the nation.

    WP backed TCB didn’t win and now you hantam TKL and TJS? Sour grapes until like that.

    Short, simple and to the point. Succintly written with lethal accuracy! Brilliantly analysed. Fully concurred.
