In Feb 2016, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong created a committee to propose changes and re-write the Consituency allowing only the Malay race to contest in the upcoming Presidential election. State media Channel News Asia and government education institute Institute of Policy Studies then published a fictitious survey claiming Singaporeans are racist when voting. Shortly after, the single-party Parliament approved a White Paper “accepting” the proposals by the committee.
