Abstract

This primer is an introductory guide to the Constitution, its history, the legal concepts associated with it (such as the separation of powers and constitutional supremacy) and so much more. With illustrations and diagrams to aid in understanding, it is designed for readers of all ages and from all walks of life. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It provides for, among other things, the 3 branches of the Singapore government (namely, the executive, the legislature and the judiciary) and secures our fundamental liberties. The provisions in the Constitution are applied in our daily lives, both directly and indirectly, and more often than not without us even noticing. With possible changes to the Constitution in the near future, there is no better time to gain some basic knowledge of this important document. The first edition of this primer was published in December 2013. This second edition comes with an overhauled design and repackaged, updated content for easier understanding.
