NDR 2021: Singapore to specific legislation to maintain racial harmony, announces PM Lee

29 Aug 2021 09:06pm

Singapore will pass legislation under a new Maintenance of Racial Harmony Act, to “collect together in one place all the Government’s powers to deal with racial issues” said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (Aug 29) during his National Day Rally speech. It will include “some softer, gentler touches”, such as “the power to order someone who has caused offence to stop doing it, and to make amends by learning more about the other race and mending ties with them”, said Mr Lee.
