Straits Times Presidential Rountable

Mr. Tan, you did the best among all the 4 candidates! TT and TCB is too PAP-style and still in their PAP mode of operating. TJS is just an extension of opposition party. In particular, I don't understand what TCB meant by engaging in "day-to-day politics". When TKL advocates being voice of the people and being a channel to bring up issues and concerns faced by Singaporeans to the government, TCB thinks it's meddling with "door-to-door politics". Why attach a partisan label to bread and butter issues that should be brought up for the interest of Singaporeans? Issues only become politics if people like him chose to politicized them. So when TCB say "nation comes above politics" - is he saying that the issues and concerns faced by Singaporeans is not of national interest?? His logic is contradicting and confusing at best.
