Facebook does not recognize S R Nathan's face




I respect this guy for what he has done and not so for what he has not done. He says his most difficult moment in his 12 years of presidency is approving death penalty, but he "does not have the power as the president of Singapore to oppose it. It is a very complex procedure and his duty is to ensure the investigation is done properly"

???

He does not want to comment on the population white paper.

He does not want to comment on the death penalty.

He does not want to comment on social media engagement of the government.

He does not want to comment on why he did not follow up on his predecessor question on the sovereign funds.

If the president's position is just a figurehead that draws $4 million a year,  perhaps its time to review the role of the president? Do we even need one?
