When PM Lee spoke at 4pm today, apolitical people like BuffLord95 only has one question: when is Polling Day?

Lest you’re not aware, the whole process of election isn’t like an election for your CCA president: a series of events have to happen before we head to the polls.

No.

Returning Officer: Mr Tan Meng Dui

The Returning Officer for this election is Mr Tan Meng Dui, who is the CEO of National Environment Agency (NEA).

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:

That has been confirmed since 2017, and we’ve not had a chance to see him announce any results as we didn’t go to the polls during the last Presidential Elections.

Mr Tan is a former deputy secretary (technology) at the Ministry of Defence, and held the rank of Brigadier General (BG) in the SAF.

Reader Bao: So does that mean no one would summon me for parking at a double-yellow line?
