I was reading about Dr Seet Ai Mee and her hospice movement in the Sunday papers. She was our first acting female minister. She said, "The funny part of this story is God works in very mysterious ways."
Somehow her remark set me thinking of the presidential election. Is this one of God's mysterious ways?
I look at it this way - the outcome is not bad though the winning margin is as narrow as a hairline. It shows people want a president who is not only able and experienced but who could also connect with the masses.
Looking at it from a positive angle, I believe each of the top two contenders has the support of over 50% of Singaporeans. We can vote for only one candidate but we can support more than one.
