Do you want to see improvements to Singapore’s electoral system so that its free and fair and the results better reflects your vote? If you do, join this public consultation organised by Singaporeans For Democracy (SFD) and share your views.

Presently, the United Nations is accepting reports from civil society groups to assist it in assessing the Singapore government’s human rights record. This assessment is done through the United Nations mechanism the Universal Periodic Review. Singapore’s human rights record will come under the United Nation’s review in 2011.

SFD will listen to your inputs during this consultation and summarise them into a report that will be submitted to the United Nation’s Universal Periodic Review process (http://sfd.sg/content/sfd-submit-report-singapores-electoral-system-un).
