Singapore’s 2nd Presidential Elections

Despite the hype having died down after the elections ended on Sunday morning at 4 am or so, I thought this was yet another historic moment for Singapore and for us to remember.

Our former presidents were mostly elected uncontested elections till 1993 where Singapore had her first ever presidential election. Too young to vote then or to even understand politics, that event went unnoticed in our eyes. 18 years later, and we have our 2nd presidential elections, the seat hotly contested by 4 candidates.

Our polling day was on 27th August, and we headed to our respective venues to hand in our polls. Pretty quick process as the crowds came in at staggering periods.

Although we weren’t too excited with the results (we voted for the man who came in second), I guess that’s that! A new president for Singapore for the next 6 years come 1st September. Till then, we will reminisce on this defining moment where we played a part in Singapore’s 2nd ever Presidential Election in history.
