Halimah Yacob only one to get eligibility certificate, set to be Singapore's next President.

Madam Halimah Yacob is set to be Singapore's next President, with the first presidential election reserved for candidates from the Malay community headed for a walkover.

The 63-year-old former Speaker of Parliament was the only presidential hopeful to be issued a certificate of eligiblity by the Presidential Elections Committee.

Marine services firm chairman Farid Khan, 61, and property company chief executive Salleh Marican, 67, have been informed they did not qualify to contest the election.

So nomination?

Or do they still follow the process?

Coincidentally, last week the Power Team was preparing to field Polling officers, training was planned etc. etc.

And on the other hand, on the supposed polling day, another event was being considered for cancellation, but another "power team" told the event can carry on.

Seems some knew something, or expected some outcome confidently, and some didn't :D
