Hamid greets Singapore’s 1st female President

President Abdul Hamid on Friday congratulated first female President of Singapore Halimah Yacob on being elected the head of state of the country.


In a congratulatory message, the President expressed the hope that Singapore will go towards further development and progress under her leadership, reports UNB.


“I also hope that the existing friendly relations between Bangladesh and Singapore will be strengthened during her tenure,” he said.


On Thursday, Halimah Yacob, a former speaker of parliament from the Malay Muslim minority, won the presidency in a walkover after authorities decided that her rivals did not meet strict eligibility criteria.
