Dear Mr. Tan,

I was reading the ST today when the cover page says that the only candidate who automatically qualifies is Halimah and the other 2 are subject to the committee’s approval. But let’s look at it like that:

Halimah became Speaker because Michael Palmer resigned after his affair was exposed. The point is this: the skills required to be Speaker is not so difficult because even a practicing lawyer can take on this role as a part-timer. Moreover, he was only a partner at a larger middle-market firm.

By contrast, both Salleh and Farid have archived greater things but setting up their own companies and growing them into large ones that are worth $200 million or more. Surely, this is a much more challenging job than to become speaker?

The fact itself is that there are thousands of lawyers in Singapore but only less than half of them who could manage a $200 million company. So my question to you is: do you think this the prescribed criteria is fair? I am asking you this because I am sure you understand where I am coming from.

I agree with your sentiment. I also feel that Halimah Yacob does not have the financial knowledge and experience for the responsibility of looking after the reserves.
