Voting Denied

filed under Singapore

Just when I thought I could vote for the very first time, I was denied the chance. So much said for democracy, Singaporeans have not been able to vote for President since 1993. Yes, President Nathan has been doing very well in nation affairs. He's well-loved by Singaporeans too. But a change of face may be beneficial. We would love to have a say in choosing our President.

I'm afraid the criteria for presidential eligibility set by the Presidential Elections Committee may be too strict. So strict that maybe only people from PAP are eligible; I'm only joking, really. Andrew Kwan was a very hopeful candidate until the local media revealed some "facts". True or not, I don't know. But we know the local media, don't we?

So what do you know about the local media?

Here's a quote from one of my previous posts:

"Reporters Without Borders ranks Singapore 147th out of 167 countries on press freedom. Traditional media are told to report everything in the country's or rather the government's interest."
