Crucial for Constitution to protect interests of minority races

I applaud and fully support the Government's initiative to amend the Constitution to ensure that a president from Singapore's minority races is elected from time to time ("Safeguard to ensure minority president from time to time"; Sept 8).

This initiative speaks of maturity and a keen understanding that the Constitution must protect the interests of the minority races in Singapore.

This initiative must be written into the Constitution to remind future generations that in order to maintain racial harmony and the continual prosperity of Singapore, the interests of minority races must be taken care of.
