Singapore’s presidential election next year will be reserved for Malay candidates in a bid to ensure that all major ethnic groups have a fair chance to serve as president in the longer term, despite the city-state having a dominant Chinese population, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Tuesday. Lee told parliament that the next presidential election, due by August next year, will only be open to Malay candidates under a proposed constitutional change whereby an election will be reserved for a particular racial group if no one from that group has been president for five continuous six-year terms.
