George Yeo exiting politics, will not run for Presidency #SGelections

AFTER 23 years in politics, Foreign Minister George Yeo is exiting the political scene. He confirmed at a news conference on Tuesday morning that he will not be contesting in Aljunied GRC in the next election. 'It is better for a younger person to take on this important task,' he said, noting that he is now 57 and would be 62 by then. 'Naturally, I would help to ensure a smooth handover.' Mr Yeo also ruled out the possibility that he might run for the elected Presidency later this year. With a smile, he said: 'I'm a free spirit and I don't think I'm temperamentally suited for it.'
