Ensure minorities are represented in Parliament

Singapore introduced the GRC system to ensure that minorities will be adequately represented in Parliament.

I asked this question in The Wisdom of the Crowd - How can our system ensure that minorities will be better represented in Parliament?

42% of the respondents said it is better to revert to single member constituencies and allow minorities to be appointed as nominated MPs, if they are not adequately represented.

42% said there is no need to ensure minority representation in Parliament as there is mutual respect among all the ethnic groups.

9% said allow the minorities to elected non-constituency MPs directly.

7% said that it is best done through the GRC system.

A total of 93% said that the GRC system is not a good system to ensure minority representation.
