Vier Tans für die Demokratie

by Birte Schöler

Präsidentschaftswahlen in Singapur

Am 27. August 2011 strömten die Singapurer Bürger in die Wahllokale, um ihr neues Staatsoberhaupt zu wählen. Eines war zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits klar: Welcher der vier Kandidaten auch gewinnen würde, der Name des Siegers lautete auf jeden Fall Tan.

Dass die Entscheidung für den neuen Präsidenten, der in einigen Schlüsselbereichen mit Veto-Rechten ausgestattet ist und unter anderem die obersten Richter benennt, so knapp ausfallen würde, damit hatte jedoch kaum jemand gerechnet. Lediglich ein gutes Drittel der Wähler gaben ihre Stimme dem regierungsnahen Sieger Tony Tan. Die People´s Action Party (PAP) regiert seit 50 Jahren im Land. Das Schwache Resultat der Wahlen macht deutlich, dass die Verschiebungen auf der politischen Landkarte Singapurs durchaus das Potenzial haben, sich dauerhaft zu etablieren.
