Presidential elections are generally open to candidates of all races but if we have not had a president from a particular community for five consecutive terms, then the next term will be reserved for candidates from that community. If one of them is elected, we will have a president from that community.

Whatever events may have sparked the rioting, there is no excuse for such violent, destructive, and criminal behaviour. We will spare no effort to identify the culprits and deal with them with the full force of the law.
