It was a landslide victory for Tharman Shanmugaratnam in the presidential election. The 66-year-old former senior minister scored a big win with 70.4 per cent of the vote, while rivals Mr Ng Kok Song and Mr Tan Kin Lian received 15.72 and 13.88 per cent respectively.

The sample count released at about 10.40pm on Friday had shown Mr Tharman leading with 70 per cent, while Mr Ng and Mr Tan were trailing with 16 per cent and 14 per cent respectively. Addressing the media at Taman Jurong Food Centre shortly after that, Mr Tharman said he was “humbled by the strong endorsement that Singaporeans have given to me”.
