Singapore’s new president



Dr Tony Tan has been voted Singapore’s seventh president, in a race that had just 7,269 votes separating him and runner-up Dr Tan Cheng Bock. [..] 35.2% of 2.1 million voters threw their support behind the former deputy prime minister. ~ Straits Times

Disappointing, if unsurprising.

The photo is a random one from a memory card I found in a drawer. Singapore in 2010.
