According to the Constitution, the Parliament of Singapore's maximum term is five years from the date of the first sitting of Parliament following a general election, after which it is dissolved by operation of law. However, the Prime Minister may advise the President to dissolve Parliament before the five-year period is up, which might be happening in April, May or September 2020. A general election must be held within three months after a dissolution of Parliament. Singapore uses the first-past-the-post system of election, and voting is mandatory for all Singaporeans aged at least 21. Elections are conducted by the Elections Department, which is under the Prime Minister's Office.


The Electoral system of Singapore

There are currently two types of elections in Singapore: parliamentary and presidential elections. According to the constitution of Singapore general elections for parliament must be conducted within 3 months of the dissolution of parliament, which has a maximum term of 5 years from the first sitting of parliament, and presidential elections are conducted every 6 years.

The parliament of Singapore is unicameral with 89 seats. Since the legislative assembly election in 1959, the People's Action Party has had an overwhelming majority, and for nearly two decades was the only party to win any seats, and has always formed the government of Singapore.

Confirmed Candidated For Singaporean Presidential Elections 2017.

Presidential hopeful Mohamed Salleh Marican submitted his app. forms on Wed (Aug 23).

Farid Khan Kaim Khan, is the chairman of Bourbon Offshore Asia Pacific, a leading offshore oil and gas marine provider in the region, and founder of Bumi Subsea, an undersea operation firm. He also sits on the Careers@Maritime Steering Committee – an initiative supported by the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) that aims to grow awareness about jobs in the maritime industry.However, Bourbon Offshore Asia Pacific reportedly has a shareholders' equity value of US$300 million, which falls short of the S$500 million required to automatically qualify as an eligible candidate.


Mohamed Salleh Marican, founding chairman and CEO of 2nd Chance Properties, the first company owned by a Malay/Muslim to be listed in Singapore.Mr Salleh said "I believe I have done well for myself in business and would like to step up and give back to society in a much larger way" and that he "can also fulfill the call of most Singaporeans who desire a truly independent Elected President, one who is untainted by party politics". However, Mr. Salleh's company only has a registered shareholder equity S$254.3-263.23 million over the last three financial years, which falls short of the S$500 million needed to automatically qualify as an eligible candidate.

 


Shirwin Eu, a private-hire driver who had failed to contest in the 2015 general election and the 2016 Bukit Batok SMC by-election as an independent candidate said, “I understand that this is a reserved election for minorities, for Malay candidates, but the verdict is not out yet… I think there’s always a chance for the government to review its intentions. I am not sure if the Malay community wants to do that because there may be some repercussions and setbacks to it.”In addition to not being a member of the Malay community, Mr Eu also fails to meet any of the qualifying criteria, namely that one must hold a high-level civil service post or be the chairperson or CEO of a company with a shareholders' equity of S$500 million or more.  Mr Eu has also criticise the election being reserved for Malays, claiming that since "mathematics is the poorer subject for the Malay community", members of the Malay community are unable to "scrutinise the SWF, the Temasek and GIC"

Halimah Yacob, the former Speaker of Parliament, has confirmed that she is running for the Elected Presidency, and has resigned from her positions as Speaker of Parliament and MP of Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC, and from her membership in the PAP, on 7 August 2017. She is viewed as the PAP's candidate for the election, and was reported to have been considering the candidacy for three weeks prior to her announcement. Speaking after a community event in her constituency of Marsiling-Yew Tee, Halimah said, “I am thinking about it, of running for the presidency.The elected presidency is a very heavy responsibility and an important institution in Singapore, so it’s not something that one should take lightly. so it needs a bit of time to think. But I must say at this moment, I have a lot of duties I have to perform, as Speaker, as MP. These duties are also very dear and important to me.” Halimah has served as Speaker of Parliament for more than 3 years since 14 January 2013, fulfilling a key qualifying criterion to run for President under the Singapore Constitution.

 

Bahren Shaari, CEO of Bank of Singapore, does not rule out the possibility that he will run for the election. He said, “at the moment, my focus is on growing the business of Bank of Singapore with my team and deriving the synergies from our recent acquisition of the wealth and investment management business of Barclays Bank PLC.” He added, “I’m humbled to have my name mentioned as a potential candidate. It is always a privilege and honour to serve the nation.” Mr Bahren was appointed as an alternate member of the Council of Presidential Advisers (CPA) on 6 April 2017.
