Tenant’s rights

In condominiums where there is a big tenant population an interesting situation may arise in which the majority's will is being challenged. Especially when the local norm is different from the tenant's.

One example would be the swimwear. Singaporeans are generally conservative and most condominiums approve only conservative swimwear to be worn for the pools & write it in their by-laws. However, the tenants may be upset at such rules and "stage" a proxy war. They would demand from their Landlords proxy rights for the AGM to fight such rules. Is this right? Would the saying "when in Rome, do as the Romans do" apply? Do the Landlords have the right to refuse to hand the proxy forms to their tenants for the AGM?
