Bukit Batok SMC should be absorbed into Tanjong Pagar GRC: Electoral boundaries reshuffle

This will ensure Bukit Batok gets all the support it needs to carry out its plans.

Bukit Batok SMC will soon be absorbed into Tanjong Pagar GRC, as electoral boundaries are redrawn to accommodate the small town in the west.

This after the Bukit Batok SMC by-election result has been announced, where PAP’s Murali Pillai won 61.2 percent of votes and SDP’s Chee won 38.8 percent, putting the narrow victory well below the GE2015 national average of 69.9 percent votes for PAP.

One new Singaporean, Gerry Mander, said this bodes well for the future of Singapore: “By rearranging the electoral boundaries, PAP is showing that it is serious about better serving Singaporeans from all walks of life by winning elections.”

“And Bukit Batok SMC needs to rely on a GRC to carry out all its plans.”

Other locals, however, said more changes should be made to the electoral boundaries to make it fairer.

Another local, Pian Jiak, said: “All GRCs must be converted to SMCs so that the Cabinet ministers can be free to campaign over all Singapore as their own seat is secured.”

“This way the opposition will have to fight PM Lee Hsien Loong, Tharman, Heng Swee Keat and Halimah Yacob and not just one PAP candidate in the SMC.”

Singaporeans shout out loud to celebrate SDP’s candidacy.

chee-by-election

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have waited their whole lives for this day, are raising their voices jubilantly and pumping their fists into the air as they collectively shout “Chee by-election!” with utmost enthusiasm.

This after the Singapore Democratic Party announced that its chief Chee Soon Juan will run as a candidate for the upcoming Bukit Batok by-election.

One Singaporean, Gong Pai Wei, said he will celebrate this occasion by shouting non-stop: “Chee by-election! Chee by-election!”

“I can’t wait for this Chee by-election to get started!”

Other Singaporeans said a Chee by-election is what happens when a PAP MP gets involved with another woman who is not his wife.

Yia Leow Loh, another local, said: “Then the PAP MP would have to step down.”

“Because this Chee by-election is a result of infidelity.”

“This Chee by-election is a result of ‘With you, for you, in you’.”

“I love this #cheebyelection so much.”

At press time, Singaporeans have no qualms saying “Chee by-election” out loud on radio, TV or on Facebook because it is the truth.

Majulah to #cheebyelection. Good job Bukit Batok residents.
