What it should have been

In last Friday's report, "Changes to NCMP scheme 'meet desire for more diverse voices'", and yesterday's report, "Increasing diversity in the House with more NCMPs", we wrote that the Non-Constituency MP scheme started in 1991. It was introduced in 1984. We are sorry for the errors.

Yesterday's report, "The military justice system in SAF", said that convicted servicemen can petition the Armed Forces Council, which can quash or reduce their court martial sentences. We would like to clarify that servicemen can petition the Reviewing Authority of the Armed Forces Council. This authority consists of the Chief of Defence Force, a Service Chief, and the Ministry of Defence's Permanent Secretary for Defence Development.
