Sellapan Ramanathan Nathan aka SR Nathan was sworn in for a second term of office. He and 3 other people (”Tom, Dick & Harry”) had submitted their application for this S$2.5 Million a year job in the Istana. A straw poll showed that nearly 80 per cent of Singaporeans hoped for a contest. But on August 13, 2005, the Committee announced that the other three applicants had been rejected as ineligible. Nathan returned unopposed on nomination day, 17 August 2005.
