The Republic of Singapore has been in a very tough political situation since long. In today’s era also the citizens are still fighting continuously for the bare minimum rights like freedom of expressing thoughts, association with any political/ civil, racial/ religiousgroups or anynon-violent meeting with any person/ group.However, Singapore has been maintaining good political & economic relations with the U.S. and China. No Government in the World ever criticized the country’s deprived human rights condition.
The country is governed by The Prime Minister and the President acts like the guardian or head of the state with some constitutional, ceremonial and community roles & responsibilities. Until 1993 the Parliament used to elect the President; however, after a constitutional modification in 1991, now the President office is directly elected by the people of the country.
On 13th Sep 2017 Madam Halimah Yacob has been elected as Singapore’s eighth President defeatingMr. Mohamed SallehMarican and Mr.Farid Khan. She has become the first female President & Malay head of state of the country in the last almost 50 years. Her sworn ceremony is to be held on 14th Sep 2017.
