GCT said : “It is not unusual for the President to publicly acknowledge differences between him & the government. It shows the independent of the Presidency & this will help future President.”If there are wrong doing by the government or decision not in the interest of the people, President can warn them. If they choose to continue that way, President can report this wrong doing by government or decision not in the interest of the people to the people.If a political detainee on the advice of director of ISD is to release this detainee, but PM do not agree. President should investigate whether it is justified. If not President has the veto power to help this detainee. Agree.

What do we really want the president to do? The primary purpose of electing the President is to ensure that the Government does not abuse its position for their own benefit, but to carry out what it has promised to Singaporeans.
