Mr Raymond is contesting in Potong Pasir Single-Member Constituency (SMC) against the People’s Action Party’s Sitoh Yih Pin.

In 2011, Mr Sitoh won against SPP candidate Lina Chiam — the difference between their votes being only 114.

In the election that followed in 2015, Mr Sitoh and Mrs Chiam contested again but the PAP candidate won again and by a bigger margin of votes.

This year, Mr Sitoh is being challenged by Mr Raymond.

For the first time in 30 years, there have been changes in the Potong Pasir SMC’s electoral boundaries, giving it two polling districts from Marine Parade GRC. At the same time, Braddell Road and Lorong 8, Toa Payoh, originally under Potong Pasir SMC, are now under Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC. /TISG
