Changes to elected presidency not to bar certain individuals: Shanmugam

[SINGAPORE] Changes to the elected presidency are aimed at improving the system for Singapore's long-term future, not at barring certain individuals from standing, Law Minister K Shanmugam said on Sunday (Sept 18).

"The starting point in looking at this is the system. We are doing this for the future, for the benefit of Singaporeans, our children and our grandchildren," he said at a dialogue with 1,300 grassroots leaders and residents from Central Singapore District at ITE College Central.
