Having 12 presidents a year will ensure a healthy rotation of races.
This after there has been talk about setting aside the Elected Presidency for a Malay candidate to make it fair to all races in Singapore.
One Singaporean, Jin Gong Ping, said: “If you have only one president from one race every six years, all the different races will need to wait a long time for their time to come.”
“If you have 12 presidents a year, you can ensure all four major race categories get represented at least three times a year.”
“Win-win for all.”
However, other locals felt having so many presidents in a year will cause logistical issues in the Istana as they move in and out every month.
Another local, Mei Wen Tee, said she has a solution: “Instead of electing one new president a month, Singaporeans can elect 12 presidents at the start of the year.”
“Then all 12 will stay in the Istana and they get voted off one at a time, a la Big Brother.”
“Some more when spin off a show, Singaporeans can get a closer glimpse of what it is like to be head of state.”
