AN OVERHAUL is under way of how Singapore's biggest business chamber elects its board of leaders.

The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI) has decided to do away with its long-standing tradition of electing council members to represent different dialect groups. It will also reduce the number of council members from 66 to 56 and impose an age cap of 70 on members.

These changes were agreed on by the current council members at a meeting held last Friday.
