Defending the Legitimacy of Singapore Elections: MARUAH Position Paper on the GRC system

IMG-20130819-WA0001

MARUAH has published a position paper on the Group Representation Constituency (GRC) system in elections in Singapore.

In this position paper, the second in its electoral reform series, MARUAH approaches the issue of Group Representation Constituencies (GRCs) from the standpoint of the right to representative government as well as free and fair elections.

This paper concurs with the goal of ensuring minority representation in Parliament. However it argues that the GRC system is a poor tool to this end because it creates more impediments to electoral and representational fairness than it solves.
