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

SDP volunteer continues to tell people he will spoil his vote because he does not want to lend credibility to the reserved presidential election.

What PM Goh wrote in his condolence letter to Ong Teng Cheong's family in 2002: "As the first elected President, Teng Cheong had to work the new two-key system..."
