Abstract

Constitutional Change in Singapore: Reforming the Elected Presidency is an excellent contribution to the literature on a uniquely Singaporean institution: the Elected Presidency. Established in 1991 as a means of providing an intra-institutional check upon the exercise of executive power through a democratically-elected head-of-state, the Elected Presidency is an autochthonous innovation to the traditionalWestminster structure of government. A compilation of insightful and thought-provoking essays, the book will be an invaluable resource for lawyers, academics, law students, and anyone else interested in the Elected Presidency.
