The electoral results of the first three SMCs, Macpherson, Bukit Panjang and Potong Pasir- have been revealed (June 11), with PAP retaining power in all three constituencies.
The results for Bukit Panjang SMC were first to come in with PAP’s Liang Eng Hwa securing 18,070 votes (53.4 %) against SDP Paul Tambyah’s 15,556 votes (46.2%) out of a grand total of 35,497 electors.
For Macpherson SMC which has 28,564 voters, PAP’s Tin Pei Ling won 18,983 votes (71.74%) by a landslide against PPP’s Goh Meng Seng’s 7,477 votes (28.26%).
Upon seeing these results, Dr Paul Tambyah called out PAP’s action in calling the 2020 General Elections in the midst of a world pandemic and he “emphasized the recklessness and opportunism of the PAP”. He, alongside Dr Chee Soon Juan, resolved to work harder for the people in their respective constituencies and improve their lives wherever they could.
These elections have so far proven to be rife with controversy, especially with the government’ decision to hold them amidst a global pandemic as well as the extended voting period.
