COVID-19 has shown the world the best of Singapore and how its people stood together with a common identity as Singaporeans, said MP Christopher de Souza. Speaking in Parliament on Friday (Feb 26), he said as the country's diverse culture and heritage become more and more a part of Singapore, race will become less and less a factor in evaluating a person. In politics, that would mean that when choosing a candidate to lead the Government, the choice must be the best person for the job, regardless of race, he said.
