SDP VOLUNTEER: WE DON’T NEED A PRESIDENT BASED ON RACE, REVERT TO APPOINTED PRESIDENCY!

Some people asked, why do I want to void my vote? I should vote for other candidates instead, if not, Halimah will surely takes the Presidency, if she, decided to stand.

Or do not regret, if she wins by just a 100 votes or so, and how the spoil votes can actually make a difference if we don’t void our votes.

Let me make it clear. I will void my vote based on my personal believe and principles. I strongly believe in an open election. A reserved election for any community smacks of total racism and discrimination against others.

So if I vote for any of the candidates, it’s as if I’m giving a green light to the PAP Government to continue with their racist and discriminatory policy.

A vote to any of the candidates, is like telling me that my race is not able to stand on its own two feet, that my race is a weak lot, and that’s why it need the election to be reserved so that my people can stand and contest, without having any other races taking part in it.

A vote to any of the candidate, is going against the pledge that we are one united people, regardless of race, language or religion.

So, how could I totally go against my basic conscience?

My spoil vote may not means anything to the PAP Government. It may not means anything to anyone out there. But, it truly means a lot to me, to my believe, to my conscience, to my principles which I hold dearly to.

What we need in a President is someone with credibility, capabilities and abilities. Someone, who will speak and stand up for the people. A President, who can truly unite the people, someone like the beloved late President Ong Teng Cheong.

We do not need a President solely based on race.

If the Government insist of having a minority to helm the Presidency to showcase Singapore multi-culturalism to the world, than it should do away with the Elected Presidency and revert back to the old system where Presidents are appointed and rotated among the various races.

MAJULAH SINGAPURA!
