Chua Kim Yeow, who reluctantly stood against Ong Teng Cheong, in Singapore’s first Presidential Elections, died Sunday morning, of pneumonia.

In the first-ever Presidential election to be held, after PAP came up with the scheme – to the opposition from JBJ and CST – Chua Kim Yeow famously said the following when contesting against Ong Teng Cheong, then the PAP-favoured man:

“In Singapore, as you know, the PAP dominates the government and dominates the legislature. Do you want the PAP to dominate the presidency as well?”

And for that, won a respectable 41.31%.
