PE: Vote not a tough choice, says President S R Nathan

SINGAPORE: President S R Nathan said it was not a tough choice for him to know who to vote for. He said he knows Singaporeans are sensible people and will do what is best for Singapore. President Nathan was speaking to reporters after casting his vote at Haig Girls' School. He was accompanied by his wife. Voters streamed in early at Haig Girls' school, one of the 781 polling centres, with a few voters arriving just before the centre opened at 8am.
