The politics in Singapore – if you want someone from a minority race [the Malays, for example] to become the President, the process is very simple – amend the Constitution.

Comment posted by me in The Online Citizen website, under the article:

Joint statement calling for an open Presidential election in September

15 May 2017

OTC was our first people-voted President – is this correct, is this a fact? If the answer is Yes [how can it be otherwise?], then it can be argued that TT was the second people-voted President. S R Nathan became President as a result of a walk-over; no other candidates stood for election.

In the race for the Presidency in which OTC contested, no one from a minority race entered for election when the field was open; only one candidate, a Chinese, stood against OTC; likewise, no one from a minority race entered the race when TT was voter-elected; all the candidates [three?] who challenged him for the position were all Chinese.

What fooking trash has the govt been spouting, about Singaporeans having the tendency to vote for someone from their own race – was the govt referring to the Presidential elections? Must be, because it was precisely concern with the Presidential elections that led to the govt’s irrational actions in tweaking the Constitution. But, then, where is the evidence that minority candidate[s] had entered for the Presidential elections but was/were not voted in by the people?

How idiotic can this govt be? It’s maximum idiocy [or insanity?] if you ask me.
