Ultimate Guide to All the GRC Results Simplified & Summarised for You

The final results you’ve been waiting for are here.

Polling Day has been much more exciting than what we expected, what with the long queues and the sudden extension of polling hours.

And the results of our polls are also rather…unexpected.

In a nutshell, the PAP won enough seats to form the Government, so life isn’t going to change drastically from now on.

Before this election, back in 2015, there were 89 seats that were up for grabs, and PAP won 83 seats while Workers’ Party won 6. There were then 29 electoral divisions (16 GRCs and 13 SMCs), and the PAP won 15 GRCs and 12 SMCs, while Workers’ Party won 1 GRC and 1 SMC.

In this election, 93 seats are up for grabs with 31 electoral divisions (17 GRCs and 14 SMCs). This time, PAP won 83 seats while WP won 10 seats.

So, what are the results for each individual GRCs, and who are contesting? How did Nicole Seah and Amos Yee – I mean, Jamus Lim, fare?

Well, put on your seatbelt because this is going to be a long, long drive.

Aljunied GRC (PAP vs WP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 40.07%
WP: 59.93%

Winner: WP

Let’s face it: this is the GRC that everyone’s looking at, and it’s no surprise that it’s one of the GRCs that has its results reported rather late. Fate does know how to be dramatic and it also knows how to keep people awake.

This election, Workers’ Party had a large swing towards them, as they garnered only 50.96% of the votes in the last election. Back then, it was so close that PAP applied for a recount.

Lest you’ve forgotten, it all started in the 2011 General Election, when the Worker’s Party (WP) made electoral history with the first-ever GRC victory for any opposition party in history when they won Aljunied GRC.

They unseated the People’s Action Party (PAP) team led by then-Foreign Minister George Yeo and Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office Lim Hwee Hua.

Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC (PAP vs SPP) (4 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 67.26%
SPP: 32.74%


Advertisements  

Winner: PAP

PAP, despite having an anchor minister leading the team, didn’t perform as well compared to 2015.

In the last election, PAP retained the Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC with a landslide victory over the Singapore People’s Party with 74% of the votes.

SPP chief Steve Chia said the party decided to reduce their target from seven seats to five for this election, in order to “avoid three-cornered fights as much as possible and also to consolidate our resources.”

One of their candidates, Melvyn Chiu, owns a pet shop and contested the 2015 general election as a member of the SingFirst party.

Results:

PAP: 74.62%
RDU: 25.38%

Winner: PAP

In 2015, PAP won the GRC with nearly 80% of the vote against Singaporeans First. After all, this is Jurong GRC, the stronghold for PAP.

While it looks like a rather baddy result (from 80% to 74%) despite the win, do note that back in 2011, PAP won with mere 66.96% of the votes.

Here’s RDU’s team for Jurong GRC:

West-Coast GRC (PAP vs PSP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 51.69%
PSP: 48.31%

Winner: PAP

Yes, it’s that close. You can say that Dr Tan Cheng Bock is indeed a person who’s now used to the phrase “so close yet so far”.

In the previous election, PAP beat the Reform Party (RP) by more than a 50,000 vote margin to retain West-Coast GRC.

But this year, it becomes one of the most hotly contested GRCs, simply because Dr Tan Cheng Bock, who used to be from the PAP, is coming back with an opposition team with his new party. You can read more about it here.

Minister for Social and Family Development Desmond Lee, 43, who moved from Jurong GRC, is in PAP’s team.

Sengkang GRC (PAP vs WP) (4 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 47.87%
WP: 52.13%

Winner: WP

Ah, the surprise of the election. Or maybe not since this is also one GRC that everyone’s looking at.

This is a historic win since it means that WP now has two GRCs instead of one.

PAP’s team includes Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health Lam Pin Min and new face Raymond Lye, a lawyer.

As for WP’s team, three of their four candidates are taking part in their first-ever election, and despite that, two have got more media coverage than most candidates.

One is none other than Jamus Lim who warms the cockles of many hearts, and the other is Raeesah Khan who indirectly caused many people to make many police reports.

Here’s PAP’s team for Sengkang GRC:

  • Ng Chee Meng
  • Lam Pin Min
  • Amrin Amin
  • Raymond Lye

Here’s WP’s team:

Sengkang GRC was formed this year, comprising the Sengkang Central ward from Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, the single seat of Punggol East, and part of Sengkang West SMC.

Observers say the unpredictability of the new GRC could lead to a close fight, and indeed it has.

PAP: 66.36%

With PAP fielding the same team as they did in the last election with the addition of new face Edward Chia, the co-founder of Timbre, it’s not unexpected that they won.

Nee Soon GRC (PAP vs PSP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 61.90%
PSP: 38.10%

Winner: PAP

Some thought Nee Soon GRC would be the election’s only walkover, but then PSP swooped in to nominate five of its members. But that’s still not enough as eventually, the PAP team still walks into Parliament, albeit without someone who can make Parliament lively.

PAP beat out WP in the previous election to win Nee Soon GRC with 66% of the vote. This year, they face PSP instead.

PAP’s team this year includes Minister for Home Affairs and Law K Shanmugam and newcomers Carrie Tan and Derrick Goh, as our dear Ah Hua Jie is retiring.

PSP has fielded a new team to take on PAP which includes media consultant Bradley Bowyer, 53, who was formerly a member of the PAP (do note that he was a member, not an MP).

After anchoring Sembawang GRC for 14 years, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan is retiring from politics. Instead, the team is now led by Education Minister Ong Ye Kung, who can speak Chinese so well that we’d all like him to be our Chinese teacher.

PAP’s team for Sembawang GRC in GE2020 sees the addition of two new female candidates, Poh Li San and Mariam Jaafar.

Opposing PAP in Sembawang is the National Solidarity Party (NSP), who lost with 27% of the votes in the last election.

Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC (PAP vs SDA vs PV)

Results:

PAP: 64.15%
SDA: 23.67%
PV: 12.18%

Winner: PAP

It’s no wonder they people said a three-cornered fight isn’t going to help the opposition. Just look at the numbers.

Tanjong Pagar GRC (PAP vs PSP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 63.13%
PSP: 36.87%

Winner: PAP

It might be a straight PAP win here as we might not even have a fight in the first place.

PSP may not have been able to contest in Tanjong Pagar GRC this year because, as PAP pointed out, they had not filled out which constituency they were contesting in their nomination papers.

Fortunately for them, no objections were raised even though the deadline for making changes had passed.

When asked about the mistake, PSP organising secretary Michael Chua said that PSP could also have raised some objections to PAP’s forms, which listed its candidate Eric Chua’s occupation as “retired SCDF officer”.

“So I think in that spirit of competition, we really want to give Singapore a choice of two very good teams, and for them to cast a vote for the future. It’s not about paperwork, and these very minor technicalities,” he said.

PSP’s team this year, led by Michael Chua, includes:

  • Michael Chua
  • Abas Kasmani
  • Wendy Low
  • Terence Soon
  • Harish Pillay

Yes, if you didn’t already know, PM Lee’s brother, Lee Hsien Yang, didn’t run.

Here’s PAP’s team, which includes Minister for Trade and Industry and cotton expert Chan Chun Sing:

  • Eric Chua
  • Joan Pereira
  • Chan Chun Sing
  • Indranee Rajah
  • Alvin Tan

Ang Mo Kio GRC (PAP vs RP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 71.91%
RP: 28.09%

Winner: PAP

It’s going to be hard to compete with a team that has the country’s Prime Minister, but that’s exactly what the Reform Party (RP) did. And lost they did, though they get more votes this election.

In the last election, when Ang Mo Kio GRC had 6 seats, PAP beat out RP in a landslide victory with 78% of the votes.

Now, it’s only 71.91%.

Led by Secretary-General Kenneth Jeyaretnam, RP’s team for Ang Mo Kio GRC also includes party chairman Andy Zhu Lai Cheng and Chinese expert Charles Yeo.

East Coast GRC (PAP vs WP) (5 Seats)

Results:

PAP: 53.41%
WP: 46.59%

Winner: PAP

The plan does work, and now, we most likely know who our next Prime Minister is going to be soon.

WP’s lineup in this GRC is different to the one fielded in the last election, featuring prominent newcomer Nicole Seah, who recently made a return to politics after contesting in the 2011 General Election when she was just 24.

PAP’s team for East Coast GRC is led by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat, who has a plan for together Singapore East Coast, and includes Senior Minister of State Maliki Osman.

In GE2015, PAP beat out WP with 60% of the votes, back when there were only 4 seats up for grabs. But this year, with Nicole Seah and DPM Heng in the running, it’s become one of the most hotly contested GRCs.

And what a rollercoaster ride this GRC has been through.

  • Heng Swee Keat
  • Maliki Osman
  • Jessica Tan
  • Cheryl Chan

This year, PAP will face PSP in Chua Chu Kang GRC, led by former Hong Leong Asia chief executive and ex-Republic of Singapore Air Force colonel Francis Yuen.

PAP’s team is helmed by Health Minister Gan Kim Yong and features two new faces.

National Development Minister and the person we tune in to for good news about Covid-19 restrictions, Lawrence Wong, led the PAP’s team in a straight fight against the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) in Marsling-Yew Tee GRC and won with a good margin.

Hopefully it’s the same for the other team that he’s leading.

PAP’s team also includes Minister of State for Manpower and National Development Zaqy Mohammad and newcomer Hany Soh, who can’t walk now and likes to talk to herself on Facebook.
