S’poreans accept GE2015 gerrymandering changes to electoral boundaries

Posted on 25 July 2015

They understand lines redrawn to keep up with tradition.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are kind and understanding, have come out to say that they accept the gerrymandering changes made to the electoral boundaries ahead of GE2015.

This after Moulmein-Kallang GRC and Joo Chiat SMC are among some other constituencies that have suddenly disappeared overnight.

One Singaporean, Gao Zhen Zhi, who used to live in this thing called Moulmein-Kallang GRC, said: “I always read about gerrymandering but never had a chance to appreciate what it means.”

“Now I get to witness it first-hand, this almost makes you want to believe the rumours that constituencies that almost went the opposition’s way in the last election get conveniently redrawn.”

Other Singaporeans said they have also learnt the same valuable lessons so far from seeing how Serangoon is still classified as part of Marine Parade GRC.

Another local, See Long Kong, said: “The incumbent has always made it a point to make it seem like they want to win by practising some unfair advantage.”

“I guess they are just sticking to tradition.”
