The Parliament has passed the Amended Constitution on the Elected Presidency to have next year PE being reserved only for the Malay Community.
And as usual, we have 77 People’s Action Party MPs voting “Yes” and the 6 Workers’ Party MPs voting “No”.
From the above figures, you can see how under-represented the Opposition MPs are in Parliament that the ruling regime could have easily passed this ridiculous stupid amendment without any efforts at all!
For those who had voted for the regime in the last General Election, I hope that each and every one of you will reflect back on what you have done.
There’s no point for you to make so much noise when you are the one who has given the ruling party the power to manipulate and abuse the system.
I’m extremely curious on the Malay Organisations’ stand on Presidential Election (PE) 2017 being reserved for Malay Candidates only.
Do they agree with the PAP Government stand that the Malay Community is still so weak that the PE has to be reserved for the community only?
Do they agree with the PAP Government stand that the community still do not have any merit to stand on its own two feet?
Do they agree with the PAP Government stand that the Community still needs to beg for the seats to be reserved only for them because they still cannot compete with the other races?
Do they agree with the PAP Government stand that after years of Independence, the community still do not have anyone who have the merit, ability and credibility to compete with fellow Singaporeans on an equal platform?
