The Court of Appeal has reserved judgement on the appeal by former presidential hopeful Tan Cheng Bock against the basis and timing of the coming reserved Presidential Election, after a panel of five judges heard the case on Monday (July 31).
The court gave no date as to when the judgement by the five judges, among them Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, would be delivered. The other four judges hearing the case are Judges of Appeal Judith Prakash and Steven Chong, as well as Justices Chua Lee Ming and Kannan Ramesh.
Dr Tan told reporters: “Singaporeans must fully understand the issue, not just accept (it). If in the end, we are found to be wrong, then we accept it. That’s what democracy is about.”
He filed the appeal to the apex court after his earlier legal challenge was dismissed on July 7.
