This decision was prompted by concerns expressed in the 2016 Report of the Constitutional Commission, which highlighted the potential discouragement of potential candidates due to fears of embarrassment.

Tharman Shanmugaratnam, who was born in Singapore and has Indian origins, had announced his intention to participate in the presidential election in June. This move comes after dedicating 22 years to active involvement in the country’s politics. Before his political career, Tharman served as an economist and civil servant at the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
