The following is release by Dr Tan Cheng Bock addressed to his supporters and friends:
Many Singaporeans including Netizens, have expressed their concern that the Constitutional Commission’s report has excluded me from the 2017 Presidential Election.
I have been kept busy assuring them that the Constitutional Commission Report will be tabled in Parliament in the form of a White Paper on 15th Sept.
Parliament will debate it, make amendments, support it, or even reject it. We should not jump into conclusion that the whole exercise was to prevent me from running.
After all, the people in charge are men of virtue and integrity and would not resort to doing this.
Let us wait for the coming debate before jumping into conclusion.
